    • When does Microsoft plan to fix this issue? Our custom site,, uses text anchors on SVG elements and at this time Edge is the only browser that fails to load the page containing this issue. Our site is offline to anyone using the latest Edge browser, which is a significantly growing number of users. Fixing this issue in our code will require a complete redesign of one of our main graphical elements, just for this Edge issue. We are between a rock and a hard place on this one. Help!

    • I and rest of my colleagues would be really pleased if this issue could be fix. We use a lot of SVG graphics in our work. A lot of our client use MS browsers. This issue has been reported already in April .
