Steps to reproduce

Hello. I’m new to Windows 19 Pro 64 bit. This is a fresh install not an upgrade.
I work a lot with When I’m within this web site and I hover open a link, a window will open with a vertical scroll bar. If I move my cursor to the scroll bar, the window closes. This happens every time. If I move my cursor to the up or down arrows there is no issue. 

Screenshot attached.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for providing this information about the issue. After thorough testing, we are unable to reproduce this problem in Edge with the information at hand. Please update this case when you can provide more details, such as: (1) Do you mean “hover over” a link, or do you click the link? (2) What specific link and what is the normal behavior you expect? (3)
    Will you please attach a screenshot of the mentioned popup window?

    Best Wishes,

  • I have added a screenshot to my original message. This is an web page. I hovered my cursor over the link that says Hamburg Passenger Lists, 1854-1934 and the window opens showing the details of that link. While the window is open I move my cursor to the right to the scroll bar. When the cursor lands on the scroll bar. the window closes. As I mentioned previously, this happens every time. If I move the cursor to the up or down arrows above and below the scroll bar, I can move the details up or down. This behavior does not happen with Firefox.

  • To help you with this behavior I have attached a screenshot video. When you see the window close, I have left clicked the slider to grab it in order to move it up or down.
