    • I believe this is a similar issue to the one I’ve encountered recently. Using Microsoft Edge 40.15063.0.0. If I open a popup using and then later try to focus it using myWin.focus() it will not focus it in Edge but will remain on the current tab (in my case). However, I am still able to modify things like its location. Behavior in FF and Chrome is to focus the tab (or window).

    • in the version 41.16299.666.0 the issue still occurs.
      When will be fixed?
