    Edge Bug: Leaves a blank browser open and unresponsive


    Folks,

    Using Edge, if I click the "+", open a new tab, then drag that tab out to start a new browser window everything seems fine.

    I can open more and more tabs on that "daughter" window. If I then choose "close all tabs", they all go away...but the edge browser window stays open. Clicking the "X" in the upper right does nothing, as does the right-click on the task-bar. The "mother" window still works. It's the "daughter" window, devoid of any tabs, which is unresponsive.

    I need to ctl-alt-del and close BOTH (all) edge browser windows (totally shut down edge) to make the blank edge window disappear.

    This is repeatable.

    (By "blank", see the image, attached.)

    Same thing here. Must be a Summer of 2016 bug. Doesn't happen all the time, but annoying when it does happen.
