    What is wrong with my Edge?

    Microsoft Edge browser became really buggy all of a sudden. I've done a clean Windows install soon after that (WIn10 build 1607), but the problem is still there. I have tried resetting the browser only, but no success. GPU drivers are up to date (R9 380). It only happens in Edge, all other browsers are fine. When I made a new local account, there were no problems.

    This kind of a twitch happens every now and then and I have to restart the browser so I can use it normally. It happens in all kinds of situations, while browsing, being open in the background or being completely idle. The apps which are running simultaneously become unresponsive until I minimize/ maximize/ switch between them.

    Is there a way to fix this without making a new account?

  2. What is wrong with my 5610???

    Nokia Care. They r at a few locations. I went to the one at Parkway. Sorry pal, I tried to get the listing of locations for you. But couldn't. Go to and search through the Care Centre on "Contact Us".

    The service staff are Filipino. All they do is smile and "Sorry Mdm". I know it's not their fault. I'm just **bleep** with Nokia.

    I have been asking myself why I bought another Nokia. I was using Samsung and was much happier until this mistake 3 weeks ago.

    There were at least 2 other people who told the service staff the same thing - this will be their LAST NOkia phone.

    Ultimate disappointment.

  3. What is wrong with my 5610???

    I brought it to the Nokia repair for software upgrade. All's fine now.

    There were 2 or 3 other people using the same phone at the repair shop had the same problem with the same idiotic phone.

    What was more frustrating is that the problem is a KNOWN problem. And Nokia happy released the phone into the market. I would have much appreciated if they so much as inform me at the point of purchase. I would at least have upgraded the software before I started
    customizing the damn phone.

    By the way, for software upgrade, u have to leave the phone with the repair shop for about 4 hours.

    What is wrong with my Edge?

  5. Nothing wrong with Edge Browser been using it since day one, it is 99% better than IE as since installed have had no freezes etc

  6. Just a question do you have Java anywhere on your computer as that could or might cause your problem, or any other program you have installed.
    Also have you downloaded and installed the latest update
    Critical Update KB3211320 for Windows 10 Version 1607

    That's only your experience and obviously doesn't mirror everyone's. In my experience, Edge is junk with constant freezes and crashes. Went back to Firefox and highly doubt I'll ever go back to Edge.

    IMHO, MS never got IE right and I doubt they every get Edge right. I only use it for testing on my Insider build.*I prefer to use Pale Moon as my main browser.

    What is wrong with my Edge?

    I've even ran into some Microsoft sites/pages that didn't recognize Edge, had to use IE.

    That would be the Update Catalog? That's because it required ActiveX which (quite rightly) isn't included in Edge (or any other browser of worth except IE). I use the past tense 'required' because Microsoft have rewritten that site to remove the ActiveX components.

    As for browsers, I use Edge, IE and Firefox interchangeably. They all work just fine for me, there's little or no difference in performance I can see.

    I do have Java, but I don't think that's the problem because there is nothing wrong when I make a new local account. Java doesn't go away when I do that, but everything works normally. I also have that update.
