Edge Browser beta version 43.17713.1000.0 froze after a phishing website suddenly opened requesting both my username and password.

I did not randomly click on a link to open this phishing website. I was removing personal information from various websites. Then suddenly the phishing website opened out of nowhere. Edge Browser was completely frozen.

See screenshot of this website below my laptop specs.

My laptop specs Dell Inspiron model 5570

Windows 10 Insider Preview version 10.0.17713.1002 rs5 release

Microsoft Edge Browser beta version 43.17713.1000.0

Microsoft Edge HTML version 18.17713

Intel i5-8250U 8th generation 1.60 GHz 1.80 GHz

Intel Processor Graphics driver 23.20.16.4973

Intel Wireless PROSet/Wireless Software driver 20.60.0

Realtek HD audio driver version 6.0.1.8425

Windows 10 OS is up-to-date. Clean install of both drivers & other software as much-as-possible.

No clean install of Windows 10 Home 64-bit. I just keep updating Windows 10 OS every Tuesday when Microsoft releases its updates.
