  • Very annoying. As a web developer I use it every minute, more or less.

    Trying to test Edge instead of Chrome, but I will survive this first day.

    More with same problem:

  • This bug was resolved as a duplicate of Deliverable 7103409, which has been resolved as Committed.

    Best regards,
    The MS Edge Team

  • Which build is the fix meant to be in? It’s been 3 months and it’s still broken in build 14.14393

  • Can we get an update on this? I can’t seem to find Deliverable 7103409, and it’s certainly not fixed yet (v 40.15063.0.0)
