    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. A Microsoft Edge Extension does not support the promise model; please continue to use the callback model.

      Currently, we do not plan to release a fix. Please update this case if you can provide new information for us to consider.

    • Hi James,

      I’m not talking about WebExtensions but talking about HTML specification. The HTMLMediaElement is the common interface of HTMLVideoElement () and HTMLAudioElement ().

    • Please check out the ‘Standard affected’ section.
