    • Merging with internal issue

    • Has this issue been fixed? I’m using this version of Edge: Microsoft Edge 40.15063.0.0 | Microsoft EdgeHTML 15.15063 and the error still continues.

    • Any update on the issue??

    • I just ran into this issue too, combining placeholder with text-indent breaks my layout (Only in Edge, works in every other browser).
