Edge is slow to close


When I click on the red "X" to close Edge it takes a long time now.  Works fast with IE and regular Edge.

Version 84.0.495.2 (Official build) dev (64-bit) is slow.

After a bit of trial and error, I figured it out.  

Settings - Privacy and Services - Choose what to clear every time you close the browser.  If I enable "Cookies and other site data" it takes a long time for Edge to close.
