    • Can you provide us with the link to the website that you are having these issues with, please? We would be happy to look into this problem you are experiencing with Edge.

      All the best,

    • That would be this website:
      https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/161966/signatures/new

      
        
            Only British citizens or UK residents have the right to sign
        
      
        
        
          
          I am a British citizen or UK resident
      
      
      
      

      When you click on the label the checkbox is not checked.

    • I can also repo this in IE11

    • Hi,
      I’ve also experienced this trying to access the railway free Wi-Fi on https://www.abelliogreateranglia.co.uk/
      The local websites on each platform/station require you to populate form boxes. The form boxes will not let you populate them, neither can you check the tick boxes.
      Any chance you’ll release IE on Windows 10 mobile? Would be good to have a back-up while the bugs are ironed out of Edge!

    • How can “Edge not-working” be by design? What are Microsoft paying you for?

    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. We found the site uses an invalid pattern with both input type=hidden and input type=checkbox in the same label; standards dictate we should use the first one which is the hidden input. This means the browser is working as it should and the website will need to update the code to meet standards.

      Regardless, we are no longer able to access your sample webpage, but we did test this on other petitions and found the checkbox is working in Edge 15063, the public stable version.

      Please test this behavior in our latest public stable build 15063 or the insider build 16299.

      Best Wishes,

    • Hiding behind “Standards” is a joke. I like millions of others just need a browser that works with the internet as it is, not how you’d like to hope it is!

      This is the reason so many do NOT use Edge. Its time Microsoft woke up to what they’re shovelling down our throats!

    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. The sample you provided is no longer available; it loads a 404 error page. We tested other petitions on the same site and they are working fine in Edge 15063, the latest public stable version.

      Please test a recent build, and if you still find this problem then please provide us with a new link.

      Best Wishes,
      The MS Edge Team
