      I am still seeing this issue in the Win 10 Pro v.1607 update.

      Microsoft Edge 38.14393.0.0
      Microsoft EdgeHTML 14.14393

    • No plugins/addons in Edge either.
      Just to be clear, I do not mean using the search function in Yahoo Notes.
      I mean using the text search (Ctrl+f) within Edge after opening a note.

      Also I cannot reopen this issue. It gives me an error if I press “Comment and reopen issue”
