Ever since I updated to the new version today edge canary will not stay open for more than 5 seconds without crashing.

Solution

@pauljorr it's related to the sync service.  if you can quickly turn sync off completely (or disable the services you have synced), you'll be ok for now.

@ahpatel I really don't think 5 seconds is enough to do much of anything, lol.

I was able to solve it by starting an InPrivate window and then changing the settings from there so that sync was off. It is now working. Thank you!

@pauljorr disable your wifi, then launch edge and it won't crash.  Disable Sync for "Favorites" (after some testing, I was able to keep it on for Tabs and Settings and haven't had a crash so I think it's related to Favorites at his point).  Reconnect to wifi and you should be fine.

Interesting that InPrivate worked for you... it was crashing for me in that scenario. Thanks for the update though, maybe it'll help someone else.
