Right on schedule, a new Microsoft Edge Dev update is here. This week's release is a little minor, and it will be the final major version 90 release, according to Microsoft. That said, it does bring some improvements to Collections as well as autofill. Here's a look at what you need to know.
First off, we'll start with the new features. It's now possible to sort overall Collections. It's also possible to drag and drop downloaded files from the list in the Downloads popup into webpages or folders. Other new features are below.
- Added the ability for users to manually search through their autofill data by pressing the / key.
- Added an option to the Disable Developer Mode Extensions popup to stop showing it. Note that this popup only appears in Beta and Stable.
- Finished rolling out the new Downloads popup
Now, for the usual reliability fixes, changed behaviors, and known issues. For reliability fixes, you should notice that Microsoft fixed an issue where using an extension that has a popup menu in a PWA or website installed as an app causes the browser to crash. They also fixed a crash when opening the Web Widget, and issues where webpages might crash upon loading. See below for everything else you need to know. The list is shorter than usual this week!
- Fixed an issue where Edge may be unusable the first time it is opened after an update, but closing and re-opening it fixes it.
- Fixed a hang when uninstalling a PWA or website installed as an app.
- Fixed an issue where interacting with the Web Widget when the browser is using a Guest session sometimes leads to a crash.
- Fixed an issue where some webpages crash upon loading.
- Fixed an issue where some videos appear black but audio plays fine.
- Fixed an issue where images don’t display properly on certain websites.
- Improved the Site Information popup.
Fixed an issue where the Profiles Settings page sometimes shows a broken image with the message “HIDE_HEADER”.
- Fixed an issue where focus automatically moves into the Downloads menu when it appears to ask users what to do with a pending download.
- Fixed an issue where adding notes to a Web Capture causes the captured image to go blank.
- Fixed an issue on Mac where the Tab menu has a duplicate option to Select Next Tab.
- Fixed an issue where tabs forget they’re supposed to be horizontal after exiting fullscreen.
- Fixed an issue where some webpages appear too wide and can’t be scrolled to see all their content.
- Fixed an issue on Linux where scrolling the vertical tabs pane switches the active tab instead of scrolling the pane.
- Fixed an issue where the “See more in sidebar” link in dictionary definitions in PDFs doesn’t work.
- Fixed an issue where changing the browser’s zoom settings also incorrectly affects the Web Widget.
- Fixed an issue where installing a PWA or website as an app sometimes results in the app having no favicon even though the website did before it was installed.
- Deprecated the management policy to control the SSL Version Min
To end, there's a new known issue we want to note. Microsoft says users of certain VMWare software may run into an issue where Edge will no longer open. Known issues from last week and prior releases are still the same and have not changed.
Outside of Edge Insider news, there's still a lot to report this week. The legacy version of Microsoft Edge is no longer being supported, and Microsoft is bringing the new Chromium-based Edge to Xbox. As always, you can check out all these stories over at our Microsoft Edge news hub.
