    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. We confirmed the problem, and implemented a solution on a later build of Edge. We are resolving this issue as a duplicate of an existing internal bug report. We look forward to additional feedback you may have on how we can improve Microsoft Edge.

    • When is this expected to be deployed? It has been one year since it was reported and Edge is still not triggering storage events

    • The demo works as expected on build 17677. I tried:

      1. Open two tabs for the demo
      2. Type abc in the first tab
      3. Check the second tab receives storage event
      4. Type bcd in the second tab
      5. Check the first tab receives storage event
