Getting directions in Google Maps does not work anymore in Edge Dev since my upgrade to the latest 103-version. Problem does not occur with the Edge Stable version.

Clicking on the Directions-button, or any other button in the Maps user interface does nothing at all.
Can confirm the same issue. I thought it was related to my ad-blocker but it's the same even when it's turned off.
Good to know. Also, "whitelisting" the Google Maps site within Edge Dev's Settings does not solve the issue either.

I agree with @Paul_VC. None of the buttons (including the hamburger menu) work. It works fine in Firefox.

@LisaS I think there's a major javascript or rendering bug introduced between the .1254 and .1254 specifically (and carried into the .1255).

  

In addition to the Google Maps issue (which I can also confirm), I'm also seeing some rather random issues from these builds on LinkedIn and Salesforce sites -- which did not exist in .1253 and lower. (Documented in the forum there here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/discussions/edge-canary-103-0-1255-0-linkedin-display-bug/td-...)

"Fixed an issue where the Extensions menu is blank. "

Thank you very much.

Same problem here with Google Maps. 

@LisaS  No longer able to log into Chase Bank using this build.  I get the same results on two different PC's.  Just letting you know.

Solution

A regression inherited from upstream in the V8 Script engine broke many websites in Edge Dev 103.0.1255. Breakage includes Microsoft Teams, Chase, Google Maps, Marriott, and others. The latest Edge Canary fixes this issue, which should also be fixed in the next DevBuild release.
