Windows Reliability monitor is showing a lot of random PWA Identity Proxy Host MoAppHangs which seem to be related to Edge Chromium. They seem to randomly occur after closing Edge Chromium. Using version 95.0.1020.53 (Official build)

Does anyone else see these instances in the Reliability Monitor?

Hey there OP! Feel free to respond on your other thread, but pasting this here in case anyone not caught in that one finds this and is seeing these crashes. 

 

What version of Windows are you on, and are you interacting with Edge before you see these errors or are they somewhat 'random'? Have you installed any apps from the Microsoft Store, or have you installed any websites as PWAs prior to seeing this?

I found your reply in the Reddit thread, will post my answer here as well:

 

1. I'm on Windows 10 21H1 (19043.1348), another user here is having the same issue. There are also ppl on Windows 11 having the same issue shown here . He had to disable Web Apps to solve this (I don't have this option to disable at all in the Edge "flags" link)

 

2. I think this seem to happen randomly when closing Edge but I'm not sure. Mind you it's very random and doesn't always occur.

 

3. As for the Store apps, I have the standard Microsoft Store apps along with nVidia Control Panel, Realtek Audio and Piano10 app.

 

4. I have not installed any PWA's.

Thanks for reporting this, @JohnnyGui. I think this is a crash we are familiar with and believe we have fixed in the version 96 which should be available very soon.

If these continue after updating to 96, please let me know. Due to the somewhat random behavior, we cannot be 100% sure we fixed it completely.

@johnjansen For me error is still there showing randomly edge version 96.0.1054.34

There was no error from 15.11 to 25.11.

I can confirm the issue is still present in version 96.0.1054.34 just like @wasago said. Schermafbeelding 2021-11-26 181505.png

@wasago  What was the time and date of  your error?

Hey @JohnnyGui, in looking at our internal data that has been sent to Microsoft, we are not seeing hits in 96, though we do see a lot in 95. I wonder if it's possible your identity_helper.exe did not update to 96 somehow. Can you confirm the version of identity_helper.exe from the Properties::Details tab?

NOTE: This should not have a negative impact on the app usage, as it happens on exit, so it was already going away before it stopped responding.

The file has the same version number as Edge in its Details tab, which is 96.0.1054.34
