We kicked off November with a new version of Microsoft Edge on the Dev channel. Version 88.0.685.3 is now available. On this occasion, they tell us about the launch of vertical eyelashes.
As we have already indicated, its deployment will be gradual and takes place in an A / B testing cycle. We hope that it will reach all Microsoft Edge users very soon.
Microsoft Edge Dev is updated to version 88.0.685.3
Added support for new pre-rendered tab pages on Linux. Added Mac support for admin policy to configure friendly URL formatting.
Fixed an issue where Edge would not open and an error message was reported regarding a bad image or missing msedge.dll file. Fixed a crash on startup when favorites sync was enabled. Fixed an issue that caused some browser profile names to crash on startup. Fixed an issue where installing a website as an app and then clicking the Edge menu … would sometimes cause a crash. Fixed a crash when using the Guard app. Fixed a crash when closing the browser. Locating an issue that sometimes caused certain websites like Outlook to fail to load and the “something went wrong” error message.
An issue that led to the prompt to restore tabs after Edge unexpectedly closed does nothing if history is set to be deleted when the browser is closed. Please note that this fix completely disables the pop-up window. Confirmed and fixed an issue that caused the Security section to be missing from the settings. An issue that caused cookies to be deleted when closing the browser was sometimes ignoring exceptions and deleting unexpected cookies. Resolved an issue where data meant to be deleted when the browser is closed is sometimes not deleted. Fixed a bug that caused some PDF files to initially make everything blank or black when opened. Fixed a bug that sometimes caused web captures to close unintentionally. Fixed an issue that sometimes resulted in an error when copying web captures. Addresses an issue that sometimes caused web captures to start when all highlighted text on a page will be deleted. Fixed a bug that caused parts of a web aptura c to sometimes not be inked. Fixed a bug where webpage zoom levels would sometimes expand the Favorites menu as well. We have detected a bug that sometimes prevented web pages from zooming as tightly as they should.
Fixed an issue where the certificate selection pop-up sometimes did not appear in the IE Mode tab.
Known bugs for this release
Users of some ad blocking extensions may experience playback errors on YouTube. To work around this problem, temporarily disabling the extension should allow playback to continue. Some users are still experiencing an issue where all tabs and extensions immediately crash with STATUS_INVALID_IMAGE_HASH error. The most common cause of this error is outdated security or antivirus software from vendors such as Symantec, and in these cases updating this software will resolve the issue. Sometimes Kaspersky Internet Suite users who have the associated extension installed may view web pages as Gmail is not loading. This error is caused by the fact that the main Kaspersky software is outdated, so it is corrected by ensuring that the latest version is installed. Some users see bookmarks duplicated after some previous fixes were made in this area. The most common way to trigger this issue is to install Edge’s stable channel and then sign in with an account that has already signed in to Edge. After a recent initial fix, some users still see windows go completely black. User interface pop-ups such as menus are not affected. Also, opening the browser task manager (via shift + esc) and killing the GPU process usually fixes it. Note that this only seems to affect users with certain hardware. Some users experience “jitter” behavior when scrolling using trackpad gestures or touch screens. Here, scrolling in one dimension also subtly scrolls the page back and forth in the other. Note that this only affects certain websites and appears to be worse on some devices. This is probably related to the work in progress to bring the lag back to parity with Edge Legacy behavior. So if this behavior is not desirable, we can temporarily disable it. Disabling the edge flag: // flags / # edge-experimental-scrolling There are some issues where users with multiple audio output devices sometimes get no sound from Edge. In some cases, mute and re-enable sound to resolve this issue. In another, restarting the browser fixes it.
