    • You need to fix the radius attribute in the femorphology element as well. It appears to have the same issue. You should probably also check all other filter elements and their attributes to be sure there are not others.

    • I’m having this issue too a lot of times for years now with several SVGs that are absolutely fully fine. All other browsers never had any problem with this. But IE11 and Edge do.
      This issue still isn’t solved. As said it’s converting just regular floating point values like ‘5.6’ to strange scientific values. And because of that effects like gaussian blur don’t work!

      This issue is even still there in Ms Edge!!! (september 30th 2018)

      It’s crazy importNode() is changing values.
      Please Microsoft, take this issue seriously and fix it!!!
      Importing svg is worthless if we have to fix all values after an import everytime.
