Latest Edge Canary crashes on startup

Occasional Contributor

This AM, I just updated to the latest version and it crashed every time I started it. Did not happen before?

same problem and on Mac.  Version (Official build) Canary (64-bit)


Reverting to dev version

@Deleted Yes, this is on macOS, I also reverted to the Dev version.

Hey everyone, just wanted to let you know that we are aware that Microsoft Edge Canary is crashing on launch for some users. We are working on a fix and I plan to have more news within a few hours. Look for a new post from me or one of my colleagues here in the Discussion forum. In the meantime, you will need to use the Microsoft Edge Dev channel instead. 


We apologize for the inconvenience, and as always are thankful to the community for reporting these issues so quickly.

@David Rubino Thanks David.


I think the crash at startup today must be a trick/plot from Microsoft Dev to check if we are actually using the Canary version :) ?
