Steps to reproduce

Hello to all!

Place a Range input in an HTML document and then try to change their “placeholder” attribute via JavaScript: Edge refuses to load the HTML document and finally end with an non very friendly to debug error, IMHO.

Probably the “placeholder” attribute is not really good for the Range input, but, other browsers simply ignore it and probably this is what Edge must to do too.

Anyone interested can reproduce the problema by following this link:

… and also by use the attached “range.html” file.

Hope this information can be useful here! :-)

  • This still reproduces for me. There is no code change associated to this, it just didn’t crash for a while I guess due to another regression, but the root of this problem was never fixed.
