    After the anniversary update there were a couple of cumulative updates and now Edge is freezing a lot ("want to recover webpage? " warning). Anyone else experiencing this? Is there a solution?
    Cheers

    I only had issues with facebook, but that was the case with facebook on all browsers as they have some "long scripts" running. Before I used to get the same message while browsing Windows Central, but now I somehow don't get those anymore.

    But did you do anything to fix it?

    So it's general and I'm not the only one with the issue. I feel better :) Do you have the couple of cumulative updates that were launched for the 1607 windows anniversary version? Can you please check it?
    Thanks

    That's something I would never do. If the normal updates are causing me problems I can only imagine the beta ones ;)

    Edge is almost unusable now for me at times starting in the same time frame. Adblock also stopped working, even with an uninstall/reinstall. I'm using a Surface Pro 3, and I was on insider preview slow ring. I turned off insider previews to see if it would help, and it hasn't. I hope Microsoft comes up with a fix soon.

    Are you all still experience this problems like myself? I would think that by now Microsoft would have released an update to fix this since Surface users are experiencing the same, from what I read...

    Yes! Many websites cause the recover page notification (If you are very patient, it will eventually load, sometimes.). Most commonly I encounter this issue when hitting the back button. It has been this way for sometime now. For me, it makes Edge a not worth the effort.

    Glad I'm not the only one. Since the AU update Edge has been becoming more unresponsive (freezing all the time) This is on a SP4 and Dell AIO. I've had to resort to using Chrome :-(

    Try alternative browsers.

    I solved my problem by reseting Edge. It must have gotten corrupted during the recent updates. It was a pain in the *** to do - figuring out how to enter safe mode in Windows 10 (needed to figure out how to get the bitlocker code), and then restoring my bookmarks afterwards from another browser. Then reorganizing the bookmarks... But it seems to run fine now, and Adblock, after a uninstall/reinstall during the Edge reset process, this time now works again.

    I got the tip from the Adblock support page: https://help.getadblock.com/support/...microsoft-edge

    The Adblock page points here for the Edge reset process: Reset Microsoft Edge browser to default in Windows 10

    I wonder if Microsoft would have fixed these problems with updates at some point if I had not done anything to reset Edge. I kind of don't have faith that they would have... that could have possibly left Edge unusable for the rest of the life of my Surface Pro 3, if I was less computer savvy, like my parents.

    I believe this issue solved with the last cumulative update

    This issue has plagued my usage of Edge for some time. After trying every fix I could find (To no avail) I changed the "proxy setting" from automatically detect to off. (I am not using any proxies.). Well, what do you know, I haven't seen the reset web page message since. Edge is now quite responsive - first time ever.

    Update 9/28/16 Well, that did not last long. Issue seemed to disappear only to come back into it's own glory. Downloaded Opera, which works just fine! Unbelievable MS would leave Edge in such a deplorable condition.
