@Alexandra-R    Having not received any responses to my original post, I uninstalled and reinstalled the prior version, but this time deleted all the data when I uninstalled the prior version, whereas I had previously uninstalled without deleting the data.  That fixed the problem, and I was able to use the prior version. I am guessing that I had some corruption in one of the installed extensions.  

 

I have updated Edge to the latest release and it continues to load and work as expected.
