MS Edge for Mac bad release - constant crash

New Contributor

Crashes on Macintosh version of MS Edge:


I was prompted to update to, upon install (no errors during install), and launch, it crashes every single time I try to launch it.

I have reverted to, which is stable and does not crash.


Mac Pro, High Sierra (10.13.6) OS, 32GB Ram, 512GB SSD boot drive.

Hard wired Ethernet connection.


If anyone has any ideas as to why, please share.

Thanks for your patience and this forum thread has an official update to address the crash issue:


"Earlier today we released build to the Canary channel. Unfortunately, this build contained a bug which caused some macOS users to crash on launch. We have now fixed this bug and released to the Canary channel. Your device will be automatically updated in the coming hours, but if you'd like to get the fix immediately the easiest way to do it is to download and install the PKG file from Just click on "Download" for the Canary channel and install just as you did the first time. Your settings and browsing data will be preserved. "
