Major issue after today's .211 Canary update. Anything you have open on the Taskbar can't be clicked on. It is hidden behind Canary and will not come to the front.

You have to minimize Canary to get to anything else open.

same issue here, seems Edge is running now always on top.

Same problem here in version 77.0.211.0

@CrazyKats I am seeing the same thing.

 

Edge Canary stays in front of anything already open or anything I start from Taskbar or Start.

However, some things in the System Tray will pop up, like Network, Sound or 3rd party VPN, while other items open behind Edge Canary, like Bluetooth.

 

Windows version 1903 build 18362.175. Edge Canary 77.0.211.0.

 

I have also reported this using the Send Feedback smiley.

its soooooooo **bleep** annoying

@CrazyKats Same issue here. I have to minimize Edge 77.0.211.0 before I can access other programs.

@CrazyKats 

is there a way to revert to the previous build?

I second that. 211 will not yield it's top most position.

Can confirm.

Also seeing the same.
the problem is called "always on top" which had been in Google Chrome Canary too for almost a week but few days ago it got patched. now Microsoft should patch it as well. it's definitely related to the chromium engine.
Solution

Problem fix in 77.0.213.1

@maisondasilva Yes it is and I'm thrilled. Great job Edge team!
