Really slow page load time on 88.0.705.50

Copper Contributor



I hope this is the correct place to highlight an Edge problem - apologies if not.


After updating to version 88.0.705.50 the page load speed is very slow and Edge often displays "Downloading proxy script".  I've tried this on several PCs and seen the same problem but I don't know whether this is something connected with my ISP or is a general problem.  If I switch to any other browser or turn off automatic proxy setup then the page load is normal.


Other people are experiencing the same problem - see


Although I can get the speed back by turning off automatic proxy setup, this is not a fix I can supply to my clients.


Any suggestions gratefully appreciated.

@Tim_Raynor all i can say it's like @HotCakeX do a feedback, but i will tell, the security regulation in my country heavilly recommand to disable automatic proxy configuration for security purposes in Entreprise.


But it's your network not mine. Good luck to the microsoft team to patch this its seems "bug".

Many thanks for your help.  I've run through the details on Reddit and have submitted some logs to help resolve the problem.
