    • Edge browser crashes when I try to write into search boxes on some torrent sites, or three seconds after I click into a search box.

    • sorry for the late reply I didn’t get the email for this until today.
      anyway it happens when i’m in High Contrast and trying to use certain search boxes or text entry fields its not all of them only some of them the link I gave at the top is one wensite this happens to, this does not happen in other browsers what information do you need?
      I can get this happening on different computers that are running Windows 10 1809 Pro or Home

    • I also have windows 10 1809 (updated on 11th December) and high contrast settings.

    • Hi there

      I’ve got the same problem. This problem doos not occur when I’m using Internet Explorer. I can reproduce this bug when I’m trying to enter a email adress on the following page:

      Please fix this problem, because it is really annoying.


    • Same problem for me win 10 1809 crashes in high contrast mode when trying to create Microsoft account or reset password on Microsoft account. Stops people from being able to purchase stuff from microsoft store, which is what I was desperately trying to do…
