Is there a way to clear out the background processes without rebooting or using task manager. There are times when edge is in an unstable state, usually slowdowns or odd behavior in the M365 suite of web apps. Without startup boost, simply closing the browser and relaunching clears the issue. With startup boost, this does not clear the issue and usually forces a reboot to resolve. Would be nice if there was a "restart browser" option in the menu similar to when an update is available.

@jasonsch69 Hi!  Have you submit diagnostic data through our in-browser feedback tool? It's under "..." menu > Help and feedback > Send feedback.  Especially when you are in the "unstable state", I would be helpful for the team to investigate.  Also, you can provide the feature request for the "restart browser" option.  Thanks!
