  • Thanks for the feedback. This appears to have been fixed in 14393.6

    I have attached a screenshot showing how the website appears once you load it up in this build of Edge / Win 10.

    Looking forward to more feedback from you in the future!

    Changed Steps to Reproduce

    Changed Assigned To to “Christian F.”

  • Appears to be related to a NotSupportedError being thrown when document.importNode is called with its deep argument set to false:

    By using fiddler to modify webcomponents.min.js used by the Battlefield page, the page can be made to finish loading. Specifically, when the call to document.importNode is modified to pass a true arg for deep import (and the returned node’s children are removed to preserve non-deep behavior), the exception is avoided and the page displays normally.

    The above jsfiddle and Battlefield still fail for me in Edge 39.14901.1000.0

  • This is still broken for me. Latest public build and preview build.

    Changed Steps to Reproduce

  • It works here on 14393.82 and the jsfiddle says “pass”
