Steps to reproduce

  1. Go to https://output.jsbin.com/yavebam.
  2. The background should be green on Edge, but is exceedingly red.

WebKit and Blink allow to set input.files to a new FileList since 2012. Mozilla has been working on varied patches to provide the same functionality since 2013. Discussions around the HTML spec have occurred multiple times in the past. I wrote a new issue on WHATWG here: https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/1391.
