Plotly crashes with "medium sized" dataset

I’m trying to create a histogram with ~9000 date data points spread over about 25 traces. When I create a histogram with a barmode of overlay, everything is fine. However, when I try stacked, my browser consumes as much memory as it can and eventually crashes. Is this just too much data for plotly? I don’t really think that is it a crazy amount of data.

As a side note, is there a way to get plotly to re-bin data after a zoom, or are the bins static after the plot has been created?

Also, with this much data the overlay when hovering with the mouse is crazy inaccurate with respect to screen placement. Also, the date range shows in the overlay for most entries, which I also find weird. Is this normal behavior?

Yeah, that shouldn’t crashed.

Would you mind sharing a reproducible example to help us debug?
