Bing is telling me that safesearch has been set to strict because the browser communicated for a safe browsing experience. It only does this in EdgeC.

Searching from the start menu returns normal results, and searching from my phone works fine too.

I also disabled the safesearch request header in about:flags, but that did not help.

Build is Version: 78.0.274.0 Canary.

Nice find, yes that's a bug and I'm experiencing it too.
I hadn't touched that flag but it didn't matter if it was set to enabled or disabled, still Bing would give me this message and prevent me from changing safesearch settings:

"We've set SafeSearch to strict because your browser communicated your preference for a safe web browsing experience."

Version 78.0.274.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit)

Same problem here on Version 78.0.274.0 @HotCakeX .
