  • I’m seeing this issue too, things only start to behave properly if you open another tab to the same page.

    I’m using storage events to theme (and propagate theme setting changes) between different windows and iframes of a site. Changing an item in localStorage will not trigger a storage event within the iframe contained on the page, but if I duplicate the tab in Edge then storage events are triggered properly on both the new tab and the iframes contained on both tabs.

    I’m only seeing this issue in Edge, working as expected in Chrome/FF/IE11.

  • Storage events are not being triggered in Edge. Why is this marked as Fixed?
