Steps to reproduce

  1. Opening new tab randomly creates this blank grey bar and stick to the top. Does not display context menu when right clicked. When switching to existing tabs, they will exhibit the same blank top grey bar
  2. The only way to clear it out is to open a new tab
  3. Still will randomly create another bar later on

  • Same problem, popping out on my desktop, laptop and surface pro tablet.

  • I have had this for a long time now is really… really irritating and I like edge as a browser its just this that ruins it

  • Changed Status from “Not reproducible”

  • Well too bad that these folks marked this bug as Not reproducible with so many instances of it… I keep opening tabs to clear them out all the time.

  • Thanks for your report of this issue.  Fix is in the pipeline for an upcoming release.

  • I have the same issue here. However, once it is active, it seems that the grey bar is present on all my opened tabs. Then, when I close the tab, the bar “may” disappear.

  • I am able to reproduce for example just by creating a 4th tab to go to The first time I have a grey bar. I close the tab, the grey bar may disappears in all tabs (or not). Then the second time I go to the bar does not appear or disappears if it was there. I did it a few times in a row…
