    Hi all,
    After updating to the latest build, I was keen to give the new browser a whirl.
    At first it loaded up fine but after adding my favourites bar,it closed and wont let me reopen. Any ideas?
    If I try and open it just shows the blue logo screen then closes after a few seconds so cant even get in there to remove the favourites bar.
    Thanks
    Gaz

    I guess it's because it's still an early build and beta. Crashing of apps is expected. But there should probably be workarounds.

    Fav bar is having issues for me as well.. I think, this is the main reason, it is closing automatically.

    Hope you tried by restarting m/c Also, if it opens, try to hide Fav bar from Spartan.. :)

    Cheers

    I cant seem to see how to remove the fav bar from Spartan as it won't open.
    Sorry I don't understand "restarting m/c"
    Thanks for your reply.
    Cheers

    When it crashes it doesn't seem to do anything to indicate that it crashed. It just freezes and you eventually figure it out when you touch every area of the screen and it's totally unresponsive.

    There may be something logged in Event Viewer to indicate the crash?

    ​You could try clearing out some of the cache folders at %appdata%\local\packages\Microsoft.Windows.Spartan....

    I've not looked into those folders yet, so I'd delete them with care.
