calling blur function of input will trigger its change event on Edge only. it works fine on IE11, Chrome, Firefox and Safari.
Steps to reproduce it.
1: go to JSBIN (,output)
2: put below HTML into JSBIN html panel
<!DOCTYPE html>
<title>JS Bin</title>
<script src=""></script>
3: put below JS into JSBIN JavaScript panel
$(‘body’).html(‘<div class="container"><input /><button>blur</button></div>’);
$(‘.container’).on("change", "input", function(evt){
console.log(‘change event triggered’);
}).on('keypress’, 'input’, function(evt){
console.log(‘keypressing …’);

$(document).on('keydown’, function(evt){
if($(‘input’) && evt.keyCode == 13){

    • Hi Larry - Can you share what version of Windows 10 you are using?  Use the keyboard shortcut Win + S and then type “winver” and hit enter.  

      I believe this issue might be fixed in our upcoming release, Windows 10 October 2018 Update.  I am using OS build 17763.1.  Thanks! 

    • Hi Kelly,
      My windows version is Version 1803 (OS Build 17134.285). Is the update released now?


    • Hi Larry -

      Yes, the update has been released.  Here is a post with more information about how to get the October Update.

    • Are you sure it fixed? I still have this bug.
      OS: Win 10 Pro (OS build 17134.523)
      Browser: Microsoft Edge 42.17134.1.0 (Microsoft EdgeHTML 17.17134)

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Open the link in Edge with dev console:
      2. Type any text and press Enter key.

      Actual result: event ‘change’ doesn’t fire (and cursor still blinks in input)
      Expected result: event ‘change’ fires

      P.S. Event ‘change’ fires when key Tab or mouse used to switch focus (blur from input)

    • Ok, I checked updates and install OS Build 17134.556.
      It didn’t help. Bug still reproduces.
      Please check it again as described in my above comment
