Steps to reproduce

When an SVG element which contains a USE element is moved in the DOM using Javascript, the USE element disappears.

This bug occurs in Edge & IE on Windows 10. This bug does not occur on other versions of Windows.

I’ve managed to reproduce this in a fiddle, which can be seen here:

Current work around is to refresh the href of the USE element after the move has happened, which is demonstrated in the fiddle.
