    • Hi,

      I was wondering if there has been any headway on this?


    • Hello,

      is there any News on this?
      Because this Bug was reported on Sep 10, 2015 and still has no fix :(

    • It’s been two and a half years now since this bug has been reported and it is still not fixed!? Have you already given up on Edge?
