Steps to reproduce

It is not possible on Edge to resize a window opened with window.open, or to have it open “maximized” or "fullscreen". Eg:
var popup = window.open("test.htm", "popup", “fullscreen,outerWidth=” + screen.availWidth + “,outerHeight=” + screen.availHeight);
if (popup.outerWidth < screen.availWidth || popup.outerHeight < screen.availHeight)
{
popup.moveTo(0,0);
popup.resizeTo(screen.availWidth, screen.availHeight);
}
See https://jsfiddle.net/8xwocrp6/6/
(on all browsers but Edge, this code allow for the window to open maximized)

      Open the fiddle in an Edge browser window that is not maximized…

      Then, replace popup.resizeTo(screen.availWidth, screen.availHeight);
      with popup.resizeTo(500,500);

      Now, the parent window is resized, not the popup window!
