Key notes

  • A recent update to Microsoft Edge is causing it fail to load certain websites
  • The browser will display “not enough memory to open this page” or “this page is having a problem” error messages
  • You can disable “Enhance your security on the web” to try and fix the issue

Microsoft Edge was recently updated to version 122.0.2365.63, and with the update is coming one major issue. As widely reported on forums, social media, and Microsoft’s support forums, this update seems to bring a bug where certain websites might not display properly.

The web browser will instead throw an error code about “not enough memory to open this page” or “This page is having a problem” in certain instances. It seems like Microsoft has since pulled the update, but if you’re already running this version of Edge and are worried, this can be fixed by simply disabling a security setting.
