    • The issue I see is in Edge 14393. When I try to attach any file in webmail, the screen starts to flash between a white screen and the appropriate tools. It seems this is a problem with the free ad to the right reloading or animating. I tried to disable the ad in my settings, but it is still there. This problem does not happen in Chrome 56.

    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. We have confirmed the problem, and we are working on a solution for a future build of Edge. We are presently tracking 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.

      Best Wishes,
      The MS Edge Team
