  • Hello,

    Thank you for providing this information about the issue. TabId will change if there is a virtual tab switch, which will trigger the tabs.onReplaced event. You are most likely seeing this behavior when the tab changes from the New Tab Page (NTP) URL to another URL. Our NTP is hosted in a different app container, and when user navigates to another URL, there is a vtab switch. Currently, we do not plan to change this behavior. Please update this case if you wish to provide new information for us to consider.

    Best Wishes,

    The MS Edge Team
