Crash when switching profiles in Dev?

Brass Contributor

Anyone else have issues when switching profiles when all Edge (dev) windows crash? It doesn't happen all the time and after the crash if I relaunch Edge Dev version 95.0.1020.5 and then switch to the profile that I was originally planning on switching to it does not crash that second time. However later on during the day it will crash when switching to a different profile.

Currently I'm averaging about 3-4 crashes a day as I switch profiles a lot.

Has been occurring for the past couple of weeks.

As always - illusive crashes. I didn't check profiles in one Edge instance. One Edge window is one Edge here on my PC. Instead of many windows I use apps. As far as your problems are concerned I've chosen other solution.


You might run in GNU/Linux or Windows:

microsoft-edge-dev --user-data-dir=/xxx/yy/.config/profile-1
microsoft-edge-dev --user-data-dir=/xxx/yy/.config/profile-2


Both Edges run the same common codes, both are separated very well and customized from scratch. It should be advisable to use backup tool to save the most important config directories/folders.


I observed no crashes as so far.


Two Examples of two profiles of the same GNU/Edge Dev:



MS Edge Dev 96.0.1028.0-1
Debian Bullseye GNU/Linux 5.10.46-5, 1.20.11, IceWM 2.1.2
Nvidia GeForce GTX 650, Driver 460.91.03, systemd 247 (247.3-6)
