Microsoft Edge Dev crashes on a regular basis unless I'm running it from the Linux terminal

This started happening yesterday, and even after downgrading 2 versions back, then upgrading again, the issue won't go away. Here's what's going on:

 

When I start Microsoft Edge Dev normally, through a shortcut on Linux, the browser opens fine, and will usually crash ~10 minutes later, or sometimes a few minutes later. But, when I start it from the terminal, it runs pretty fine, with very few crashes.

 

Here's the output log:

(ultimately, these two lines to appear before a crash)

My computer:

Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS, Kernel Linux 5.15.0-58-generic x86_64

Wayland, latest NVIDIA 525 proprietary drivers

 

I think this has something to do with the MESA drivers not being able to open nvidia_drm, zink, kms_swrast, swrast, and some issues with libva, but I'm not 100% sure. I have submitted 1 crash report yesterday, but until this might be fixed, what can I do?
