  • Fixed an issue where disabling the setting to show search results in the address bar from local data like favorites and history sometimes results in the inability to directly navigate to certain URLs like chrome://URLs, since they have to first redirect to edge://URLs.
  • Fixed an issue where some website permissions in Settings are missing icons.
  • Fixed an issue where opening a link that initiates a download in a new tab sometimes fails to start the download if the setting is enabled to choose where to save every downloaded file.

  • Fixed an issue on Mac where Shy UI sometimes isn't visible when it should be.
  • Fixed an issue where typing in the address bar sometimes fails to produce any search suggestions.
  • Fixed an issue where selecting all items on an internal page like the History management page sometimes doesn't bring up the option to delete them.
  • Fixed an issue where a website can appear multiple times in the list of top sites on the new tab page.
  • Fixed an issue where Edge sometimes leaves behind a huge data cache.
  • Changed PWAs and websites installed as apps to no longer re-open after the browser is restarted due to an update, crash, etc. due to user feedback. This area is still being explored and will likely be revisited.
  • Obsoleted the New Tab Page Company Logo management policy. Updates to documentation and administrative templates will come later.
  • Removed the ability to translate the new tab page using the built-in translator.
  • Removed the ability to save passwords in Application Guard windows.
