Respected Contributor

It should be prevented to install Duplicate extensions in the Edge browser.

right now it's possible to do it.

I can install ublock origin from Windows store and chrome extension store and have them both activated at the same time because the stores are not working together to identify the installed extensions so they still offer to install it.

also add an option to report abusive extensions.

 

this is from an extension installed from chrome extension store

this from the Same extension installed from Microsoft extension store

These are good ideas, @HotCakeX.  I will make sure that the team that is working on our Extensions story sees them.  Thanks - Elliot
