Okay, I solved it by deleting the Folder under /user/library

I sent the folder:
into the trash. Relaunched the app and same thing. Edge Inspect appears to launch, makes a new pref folder, then crashes in a matter of 3 seconds.
I had pretty much the exact same error (couldn't create that directory), except I've got no preference directory to delete. If there's anyone still looking into this, I could use an alternate solution...
I had the same issue, up untill I discovered this thread. After reading I changed the permissions for the folder Users/[username]/Library/Preferences/Adobe using finder > cmd + i > staff reading and writing. After this Edge Inspect worked.
