Steps to reproduce

I’m creating an extension for Microsoft Edge, and when I try to open new window with:{url:"preview.html",left:50,top:100,type:"popup",width:800,height:1000});

it opens in fullscreen, and not with dimensions I called method with.

This method works as it should in Chrome and Firefox.

I have also tried to update window’s dimensions in callback of browser.window.create method, but still the same:{url:"preview.html",left:left,top:top,type:"popup",width:800,height:1000},function(ww){,{left:left,top:top,width:800,height:1000});

    • Hi,

      I am also experiencing this particular issue while trying to build an edge extension. Can you please tell me if this is going to be fixed any time soon? I can see its already opened for almost 8 months.

      Right now it only supports create a new window… period.
      If not supporting the entire optional data that the create method receives, at least the position and size of a created window seems to me that should be part of the basics for creating a new window.

      Please note that this basic feature works as expected in any other browser out there.

    • Are you serious? One year and 6 times reassigned. I want to throw myself away.

    • Try adding:
      state: “normal”
      to the parameter list.

      I get a normal window, but it ignores the window dimensions I pass.
