  • Fixed an issue where the Collections pane is sometimes blank.

  • Fixed an issue where using the Save As option when downloading a file causes the file location prompt to show the same folder every time it first opens instead of the most recently used folder.

  • Fixed an issue where uninstalling a website installed as an app from outside of Edge (for example, from the Control Panel) sometimes doesn't cause the app to be removed from Edge's list of Apps.
  • Fixed an issue where Caret Browsing stays enabled after the browser is closed.
