Steps to reproduce

Edge is always on top. Steps to reproduce is very simple - just to start watch video from lostfilm-online.ru in fullscreen mode. After that edge is always on top.

This is very stupid bug. How could you miss this bug that exist more that two years.

This bug is reason for mo to switch on chrome. Chrome do not have stupid bugs.

    • As of yesterday, this started happening on a second computer at work
      Microsoft Edge 41.16299.248.0
      Microsoft EdgeHTML 16.16299

      I can’t interact with Edge properly and had no reason to enable this ‘on top’ functionality intentionally. I agree that this is a long-outstanding stupid issue and I use Windows Update often (I certainly have since 2016).

    • This is happening to me too. I think it’s due to tablet mode. I was in tablet mode to watch something on Prime Video for a while as I ate. When I returned to desktop mode, Edge was constantly on top. I closed the tab with the video, no change. I closed and restarted Edge, and I could easily bring any window on top of it, even with a video playing.
