Hi,
Which Edge channel are you using?
try turning off hardware acceleration from here and see if it changes anything:
edge://settings/system

Thanks, let me know how it goes.

by the way the new Edge has 4 channels :)
You can see your channel and version by clicking on the ellipsis menu "..." 3 dots, go to Help and Feedback => About Microsoft Edge

though I assume you're using the stable channel.

the other 3 channels, which are beta, Dev and Canary, are here:

actually turning off hardware acceleration helped with the problem .. i didn't know about those 4 channels it turned out i'm using the beta version  @HotCakeX

Okay you can keep it off as a temporary workaround but if you haven't already, it's better to report the same thing using feedback button on browser so developers can get more info about your case.
