Steps to reproduce
To (try to) reproduce:
- Update to KB3176936,
- Open a local html file,
- In the console type "window.localStorage", it should raise an unexpected error (it used to be “undefined”).
Comments and activity
Note that I’ve tested on two other windows 10, one which was not up-to-date and where the bug is not present and one "windows insider"’s computer (where the bug is there).
- Microsoft Edge Team

Changed Assigned To to “Venkat K.”
Changed Assigned To from “Venkat K.” to “Ali A.”
Changed Status to “Confirmed”
Changed Assigned To from “Ali A.” to “Shawn P.”
Note that unsurprisingly this happen also with "window.sessionStorage".
I can confirm that I have this issue. My Surface Pro 3 is on the Creators Update and has all monthly updates installed.
Same as Matthew B.
I also face this issue (Desktop Dell PC on the Creators Update, all updates installed and multiple Windows 10 Mobile devices).
I tested it in Edge (from Desktop) and it doesn’t work either.
BUT it works if I use my HTML+JS files in a webview on a WindowsPhone 8.1 Winrt App.
Could you fix it for Edge (Windows 10), please?
Another confirmation here.
Seriously - this is over a year old now. How does Microsoft expect anyone to develop/test offline web pages/apps for Edge if basic stuff like this does not get fixed - given that it works fine in every other browser?
Just giving a more meaningful error message would be an improvement…
Another confirmation here.
Appears in Webview XAML application. Appeared after updating to creators update 1703. Only affects certain PCs and seems to be related to user settings.
And it is even more disappointing to fail on this simple MDN tutorial as Microsoft announced the cooperation with MDN just some days ago (https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2017/10/18/documenting-web-together-mdn-web-docs/).
(I use build 17025).
Still running into this issue on December 1, 2017. Is there an ETA for a bug fix? It all works fine in Firefox and Chrome but I would like to include support for Edge. Thanks.
Still happening December 30, 2017. Even though session storage works.
When I inspect the window object in the console window.localStorage = "TypeError: Permission denied".
NB. I do not login to my machine with a local machine account. I log into my machine with my windows account.
I hope this helps. If people are still looking at this issue.
Still having these kind of issues with examples from https://github.com/mdn/dom-examples/tree/master/web-storage
Works fine in any other browser, yields an “Unknown Error” in the script main.js (8,1) .
git clone https://github.com/mdn/dom-examples
Open index.html in /web-storage with Edge.
Will work fine in any other browser.
