Steps to reproduce

Open multiple tabs in Edge. After a few minutes, icons are no longer visible on tabs. Text does remain visible on tabs, however. Closing and reopening Edge redisplays tab icons, but then process repeats.

  • Thanks, James, After the latest update to Windows 10, this issue seems to have disappeared, so I can no longer reproduce it. If it occurs again, I will follow the instructions you sent to create a debug trace.

  • I have 2 MS SurfacePro 3 64 bit OS, Office 2019 and have just added SuperMicro work station dual Zeon, lots of memory, MS Win10 Pro workstation.

    The two Surface computers no problem.

    But the workstation was working until about a day or two ago. Now that I want to start using the computer, this multiple tabs will not show.

    I believe that some updates that came in the last day or so may be responsible.
