Steps to reproduce

When adding a stylesheet dynamically inside the body tag, if the href attribute is not in last position, the stylesheet won’t be applied.

<link href="mystylesheet.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">

Won’t work but :

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="mystylesheet.css">

Will work.

This is a major problem as attributes order should not matter - really world situation : MVVM Library/Framework do not expose an API to reorder attributes since there should be no need for it.

Not : the stylesheet needs to be added dynamically for the problem to show up.

    • Just checking to see the status of this, our application is absolutely broken in Edge because the styles being loaded are vital (we style blogs)

    • How long does it usually to address this kind of bug ?

    • This is related to :
      This is a very common scenario, please do update us asap

    • Are you able to provide us with a bit more context? I tried to create a repro based on your details and came up with this:

      But in both Edge and Chrome the stylesheet is appended as one would expect. And unless I am missing something this stylesheet is being loaded dynamically (on page load).

      Do you believe this to be unique to extensions? Are you able to provide us with a reduced case for the extension?
