  • Hello,

    Thank you for providing this information about the issue. We installed the extension but do not see anything in the console logs when switching to and from Edge. Please update this case when you can provide repro steps to see the problem; even a screenshot might provide clues to what we are doing differently.

    Best Wishes,
    The MS Edge Team

  • Guys, I can also confirm that this issue exists.

    Here is a detailed explanation:

    Sample extension is available there in the comments.

  • Changed Status from “Not reproducible”

  • In case you’re checking the page console, the lines should be logged to the “inspect background page” console available via the extension menu.
