Steps to reproduce

Hello,

To (try to) reproduce:

  1. Update to KB3176936,
  2. Open a local html file,
  3. In the console type "window.localStorage", it should raise an unexpected error (it used to be “undefined”).

Cheers,
Marc.

    • 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).

    • 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.
