    Today morning I cannot access the adblock settings and adblock doesn't stop any ads at all. Edge is unresponsive and to be honest, I am tired of it. I am back to Chrome (for the moment). I hope that Microsoft fixes all these issues that plague Edge.

    I am on the latest stable versions. I can send you the numbers when I am back home, but there are no new updates for AdBlock. I think version 1.7

    14393.447 is my Win version and Adblock is on 1.7.0.0

    I hard resetted Edge but the problem still persists. It is unbelievable how unreliable Edge is. I love its design and rendering of text, but I need a browser that works all of the time. I am back to Chrome for now. Hopefully there will be an update soon to solve these issues..

    Except that Adblock was working yesterday before the update to 1.7.0.0, not sure how you can blame Edge

    The thing is, with Adblock in this state, Edge stutters and freezes all the time. This shouldn't be happening.
    I would really like to use Edge as my default browser. I like its style, its rendering engine and its design. Without a functioning ad blocker and with frequent crashes, this is not possible.

    Adblock released an update (1.7.1.0) and I can confirm it resolves the issue. I hope this will never happen again..

    I was experiencing the same issue. I'm pretty sure Adblock was also causing the browser to stutter and fail. So it wasn't an Edge issue, it was an issue with the extension.

    I really want to use Edge instead of Chrome, but Chrome is much more responsive, especially when having multiple tabs open. Edge makes my i7 Surface book feel laggy...
    Maybe it is because of the Adblock extension. The thing is, in Chrome I have twenty extensions running and everything is fast and smooth. This is not a rant, it is just something I noticed the last couple of days.
