Microsoft has corrected a prior glitchy update to its Edge browser, which was causing numerous problems for users. The tech giant admitted that many users’ browsing experiences had been negatively impacted by several vulnerabilities that had been unintentionally introduced by the original update.

The buggy update led to complaints from users about slow loading times, frequent crashes, and other performance issues. A user on Neowin was the first to spot the issues and report them to the blog. Other Edge users later raised their voices on Reddit and Microsoft’s support website against the buggy update that turned the browser unfunctional.

You can now get Microsoft Edge’s new update from the company’s download servers.

Following the update, Edge was unable to open webpages. It notified users that “this page is having a problem” or there is “not enough memory to open this page.” The glitchy update even led to the browser’s settings panel and bookmarks stopping working.

The memory error was supposedly due to an Enhanced Web Protection update that Microsoft intended to bring to Edge. Some users reported that they could solve the issue by turning off “Enhance your security on the web” in Edge’s settings.

These issues were created by the stable version of Edge, 122.0.2365.63. Disabling the add-ons and closing tabs couldn’t solve the problem either.

If you’re an impacted user, the fix has arrived. Microsoft first removed version 122.0.2365.63 from its download servers and then released version 122.0.2365.66 as a fix. You can now update your browser to the latest version to ensure everything works fine.

In February, Microsoft also fixed the automatic import glitch on Edge that imported data and tabs from Google Chrome without user consent. Microsoft claims the issue was due to a software bug. However, some rivals like Mozilla demand an investigation into Microsoft’s tactics for keeping users on its Edge browser.
