  • No, this is not a feature request.
    This is a problem.

    Another example:
    Try different zoom rate.

  • Hey John,

    I am unsure if this Edge issue is still reoccurring(yet to be solved) for you… However, I have a temporary fix you can use until Microsoft Edge team has an official fix:

    Here’s how:

    Use the filter property (with space between one drop-shadow to another)

    filter: drop-shadow(0 3px 0 #99ECFF) drop-shadow(3px 0 0 #99ECFF) drop-shadow(0 -3px 0 #99ECFF) drop-shadow(-3px 0 0 #99ECFF);

    This applies shadow to all four sides of a box.

    Note: box-shadow itself is flawed in Edge, so doesn’t work if we replace filter with box-shadow property in the above method.

    Hope this helps.

    – Pavan.
