    • Hello,

      Thanks for the feedback on Edge. I tested this repro out on a machine running Insider Fast, build 14332.1001 and am not able to repro. I also tested this out in 10586 as well - which did repro.

      Based on this testing, the item will be closed out as Fixed. We welcome any feedback you have on Edge going forward.

      All the best,
      The MS Edge Team
