Steps to reproduce

  1. Open Pitfall on the Internet Arcade
  2. Click the “load” button (the green button in the center)
  3. Once the character is visible, press left and right, Ctrl to jump.

This works perfectly in Firefox 47, Chrome 51, and Safari 9. In Edge 14 (14366 RS1), however, the keys stick and are highly unresponsive. (Using a normal keyboard, not a gamepad.)

If you press left once, then the character remains stuck moving left. You’re also unable to press left/right and Ctrl at the same time, i.e. to do a running jump. Instead you have to stop moving and then jump, in which case you jump straight up.

The game is essentially unplayable on Edge, whereas it works swimmingly in the other three browsers.
