Steps to reproduce

I have created an extension with a persistent background script . But the script does not run in the browser unless I press ‘Reload extension’ in Edge ‘More’->’Extension’->’MyExtension’.
The Behaviour remains the same whether I set the persistent property in manifest.json to ‘true’ or ‘false’

    • Hello,

      Thank you for reporting this issue. One possible theory is that we disable side-loaded extension whenever you launch a new Edge instance. The background script will not run until you have enabled that extension.

      Best Wishes,
