    • I am experiencing this exact problem with Java using driver.close(). I see this issue is marked as Duplicate, may I know which issue is it duplicated from? I would like to keep track of when a fix is released.

    • Hello,

      It looks like the Primary bug should have been changed to be “Publicly Visible” but was not. I have modified that now so a link to it should show up here shortly.

    • Oops. I thought my signature was going to show up automatically: I’m John Jansen on the Microsoft Edge team :-).
