OBS freezes when opening the Properties window ~30 times in one session

This issue has been happening on my PC/OBS instance for quite some time now. If I open the Properties window on sources several times in one OBS session (seems like approx. 30 times after consistent testing), OBS eventually freezes. I can't click "Cancel" or "Ok", and I can't close any windows - the only thing I can do is open Task Manager to force quit OBS. It's not considered a crash, I believe, because after I close OBS via Task Manager, a new Crash Report isn't generated. It's happened a couple times while live and I've worked around it by just making sure I don't have to add or edit any sources while live. That's usually fine but since I'll be responsible for running more and more OBS events for my job, I'd like to figure out why this issue is happening so I can plan better for future streams.

I'll upload my last crash report regardless - I'm not sure it's tied to this specific issue but maybe it'll help.

Some more specs/info:
OBS version 25.0.8 (64-bit, windows)
Windows 10 Pro v. 1903
Intel i7-4790K @ 4GHz
16gb RAM
