Steps to reproduce

I don’t currently have access to a Microsoft Edge implementation, so the below are a few points I believe Microsoft Edge does wrong regarding the console.countReset() implementation, but someone should double-check total standards compliance with this method.

  • When calling console.count();console.countReset(), no new output should be produced by the call to countReset(). In Edge’s case, this means you can go back and change earlier output, but nothing new should be added (since Printer is not called in the standard).
  • When calling console.countReset("label-with-no-counter-associated"), console.countReset(), or something of the like, the specification mandates that a warning should be dispatched via the developer console, however none is dispatched in Edge currently.

Again, if someone could double-check Edge’s overall behavior with that outlined in the console that would be ideal, since I don’t have access.

    • Hi Dom!

      We have made a decision to scope bug fixing on the current Edge product to critical security and reliability issues, and the minimum necessary to service in-market customers (RS4, RS5 and 19H1), in order to focus on high quality delivery of the new Edge based on open source.  I am resolving this bug Won’t Fix to let you know of this explicitly, instead of simply keeping the bug active.
