  Bird strike might have caused Snowbird crash, early investigation finds OTTAWA — The Royal Canadian Air Force says it’s focusing on a bird strike as the reason a Snowbird plane crashed in British Columbia last month.

Microsoft Edge . Search Community member. I was working on my computer when it suddenly crashed . Had to reset the application because every time I tried to use the search bar the application would close.

Microsoft Edge Legacy. Search Community member. Yesterday I opened a large number of Facebook tabs (around twenty), this caused a freeze of all my system, the mouse wasn't responding anymore, I had to do a hard reboot. I also am experiencing Microsoft Edge crashing .

Using Google as the default search provider causes Microsoft Edge to crash. A nice material for conspiracy theories, but it was a temporary error that most users in this country must not have noticed.

The problem occurred around 2 a.m. according to the local time, in the USA depending on the time zone in the late afternoon or evening. As soon as any entries were made in the address line, Edge crashed. It quickly became apparent that everyone affected was using Google as the default search engine. In an initial reaction via Twitter, Microsoft recommended that the search suggestions be turned off in the address bar via edge: // settings / search to avoid the crash.

investigation: Google Trends do not reliably depict trends

 investigation: Google Trends do not reliably depict trends © Jarretera / Shutterstock The results of Google Trends are obviously often not meaningful. The popular search statistics that the search engine operator offers under the name "Google Trends" are apparently not reliable. This is the result of a current study. A team consisting of employees from the Universities of Hanover and Oldenburg, the big data consulting company "Hase & Igel" and the North German broadcaster NDR dealt with the reliability of the search statistics "Google Trends".

Search the whole site. Website issues. Microsoft Edge . Search Community member. Starting a few days after I upgraded to the latest Edge , searching in the address bar consistently causes the browser to crash . It only takes 2 to 3 characters to reliably crash .

Browser crashes or stops working. Microsoft Edge . Search Community member. After an edge closure if I click on the icon it reopens with the unexpectedly closed notification. This is a new bug apparently present on the latest Edge release. Here's the workaround, until MSFT releases a fix

In the meantime, the all-clear has been given: The error should have been fixed in the meantime, it says on Twitter:

Thanks for everyone's patience while we investigated! We believe this to be resolved now. We encourage you to revert your browser settings that you may have changed, and let us know if you are still experiencing any crashes typing into the address bar. https://t.co/IcХ-$qR3UHM

If someone still has problems, it is recommended to apply the workaround recommended by Microsoft.
