Steps to reproduce

Hello,

First and foremost: this is a weird one and these steps seem really arbitrary, but excluding either doesn’t result in the buggy behaviour.

  1. Click on an href with target="_blank"
  2. which results in a redirection (Moved Permanently 301) to
  3. a page requesting the users internal camera (getUserMedia)
  4. the resulting camera image is rotated by 90° (see rotated.PNG attachment)

Since this isn’t trivial to reproduce I’ve created an example repository here:

https://github.com/wpp/edge90

I’ve noted how I start the server in the README.

We’ve reproduced this on 4 different machines, in case the hardware details are important (orientation sensor) please let me know and I’ll provide more details.

  • Microsoft EdgeHTML 16.16299
  • Microsoft Edge 41.16299.15.0

Have a great week,
Cheers
