We’re going back to our old ways of presenting a new update for Microsoft Edge on the Dev channel, this time allowing us to change the icons of PWAs once they’ve been installed. After receiving version 93.0.946.1 last week, this time we move to version 93.0.957.0, see what’s new.
Hi, insiders! The development channel update to version 93.0.957.0 is now available. There are some improvements included this week like a fix for some blank settings pages for our Linux and Mac users. Check out all of Josh’s details here: https://t.co/u7ArMf0HLT pic.twitter.com/oe1bAS0lVv

Known bugs for this version
Some extensions, such as the Microsoft Editor extension, do not work on Linux. As soon as they are installed, they are locked and deactivated. We are investigating. Users of some ad blocking extensions may experience playback errors on YouTube. As a workaround, temporarily disabling the extension should allow playback to continue. Some users still have an issue where all tabs and extensions immediately crash with a STATUS_INVALID_IMAGE_HASH error. The most common cause of this error is outdated antivirus or security software from vendors like Symantec, and in those cases updating this software will fix it. Sometimes Kaspersky Internet Suite users who have installed the associated extension may see web pages such as Gmail 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 This error is caused by the fact that the main Kaspersky software is outdated, so it is corrected by ensuring that the latest version is installed.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 doubling after previous fixes were made in this area. The most common way to trigger this is to install Edge’s stable channel, then sign in with an account that’s already signed in to Edge. Some users experience “jitter” behavior when scrolling using trackpad gestures or touch screens. Here, scrolling in one dimension also causes subtle page scrolling 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 unwanted, we can turn it off temporarily. Disable edge flag: // flags / # edge-experimental-scrolling
