    • I’m just trying to figure out why it wont open paypal.com

    • Any update? We’re facing the same issue. Since Edge 15+ window.open sometimes return null. It breaks all flows relying on popup.

    • In our project we have resigned from using popups. Now, we do a full redirection using OAuth. It saves a lot of trouble and it works in all the browsers.

    • Thanks K. for the response. That’s unfortunately not a solution for us. We have to support both popup and redirect.

    • Ok, i ive the same problem. As long as a normal page with window.open is created, I also get the reference or instance. If I open a new window by doing an internal redirect, the instance is lost. In all other browsers Chrome, Firefox is no problem.

      Many of our customers use Edge, when is there a solution?
