    Its not a new error code in Edge browser, previously users were seeing this error code when they were trying to read news article on Bing, New Tab Page or MSN. Earlier, issue was resolved automatically.

    It seems like RESULT_CODE_HUNG start appearing again but this time it affecting other popular sites like YouTube, Amazon and even more. We’ve already reported Microsoft Edge developers about the issue, but have no words from them at moment.

    Fix: Page is having a Problem “RESULT_CODE_HUNG” Error in Edge

    Until, Edge development team fixes the issue, you can try following solution that worked for users earlier. Let’s start with first method:


    In Edge address bar: edge://histograms/UIA and if it shows following results:

    Histogram: Microsoft.Accessibility.UIAClient recorded 1 samples (flags = 0x41) 1759000766 -O

    Incidentally, the 1759000766 code means that you’ve got TextExpander.exe installed and it is using UIA which turns on accessibility features in Chromium. This shouldn’t hang your browser, but because it’s a relatively uncommon configuration, and because there have been some recent changes in the accessibility code, we’ve been finding and fixing a bunch of hangs and crashes over the last few months.

    Here’s what you need to do:

    If you’re using TextExpander, then kill or close the TextExpander app and restart the browser.

    Alternatively, you can right-click on the desktop, select New > Shortcut. In the location field, copy-paste this: “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge\Application\msedge.exe" --disable-renderer-accessibility” and click Next.

    create edge shortcut for disabling render accessibility

    Give the shortcut a name Microsoft Edge or similar, click Finish. Doing this will create a shortcut for the Edge browser on the desktop.

    If you use the –disable-renderer-accessibility flag it will tell the browser to stop using the accessibility features which may resolve the issues.

    Another common UIA enabler is the Windows 10 “Text cursor indicator” feature that draws little bubbles around the caret when you’re typing. Its histogram code is 612857738

    Note – The above solution is specifically for the users who Histogram code is 1759000766 and count it as a temporary solution

    In case, above solution fails to fix the issue, then you can try following solutions too:

    Solution One

    Whenever the Edge browser starts behaving abnormally or some error code start appearing, always check if the latest update is available for Edge and install it.

    Solution Two

    It’s always good to reset Edge browser if you’re experiencing issues while using the browser.

    Solution Three

    The majority of the users reported that after clearing browsing data, especially cache and cookies of Edge browser, they manage to fix the Page is having a Problem “RESULT_CODE_HUNG” Error in Edge.

    In Edge browser address bar copy-paste this: edge://settings/clearBrowserData and hit enter.

    In the Clear browsing data dialog box, check the boxes for Cookies and other site data and Clear cache images and files.

    Select Time range to All time and then click on Clear now button.

    After that, relaunch the Edge browser and this should fix the issue. Some users reported that, this solution didn’t fix the issue in one go, but in additional try, it worked.

    Solution Four

    Use the affected webpage in Incognito mode of Edge browser and check if those pages are loading properly. For that, click (…) icon and select the New InPrivate window and visit the page.

    Alternatively, you can use CTRL + SHIFT +N key combo to open InPrivate window.

    If webpage is loading properly, then it is possible that some problematic extension is stopping site from loading.

    Click on () icon and select Extension. Here, disable each extension one by one and find the problematic extension and remove it.

    Solution Five

    Microsoft also offers an Edge browser in the Beta channel, try it and check if the issue persists in this or not. If yes, then you can also try Edge in the Canary channel that is updated daily. Download any version from here.

    If issue is not appearing, then it is possible that developers have fixed the issue and in upcoming days issue will be fixed.

    Solution Six (Last Resort)
