Gradients Crashing Illustrator
Every time I drag a color swatch, whether an existing swatch or eye-dropped, into my gradient panel, Illustrator crashes. I'm also having issues with my gradient sliders spazzing out when trying to drag them. It causes my program to freeze up. I have one file open and only five gradients in my file, so not enough to overload illustrator. It's making my job extremely hard to do. I have also restarted and tried re-installing illustrator.
This certainly is not a normal behaviour of Illustrator.

Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, we will need someone to look into your machine to figure out what is going on here.
I am having similar trouble, seems to be related to the Layers palette. At least in my case, it only happens if the Layers palette is open and on-screen.
Here is a video of a freshly re-installed Illustrator in a brand new user account crashing: https://www.dropbox.com/s/j7hete8hhhe7mzv/Screen%20Recording%202020-09-11%20at%2014.34.23.mov?dl=0
