For months now, when using vertical tabs, trying to open a tab's context menu with touch does not work.
Since Edge dev 107, the overlay scrollbar has had its minimal mode flag removed and replaced with a large, prominent style scroll, even though I don't use the Always Show Scrollbars toggle in the Windows accessibility settings.


I am running into a problem with Username and Password autofill with this version. The option shows up for me to pick a saved account, but when I use the mouse to click on a saved account, the details are not filled.


This function was working perfectly on previous built.

I have the same problem. Extremelly annoying.
Oh, glad it's not just me... Autofill is no longer working. As Mark indicates, I get the dropdown showing me the name/password as usual, but when I click on the correct login, nothing is given to the input fields.

@Mark Chan 

Same problem here..

same problem 109.0.1467.0 version, Czech language, WIN 10 Pro 22H2 19045.2130
Thank you for the updates.
Username and Password autofill have problem
Thanks, everyone, for reporting about the autofill issue. The engineering team is investigating.



If you haven't already, I would like you to submit feedback from the browser about the overlay scrollbar.

  1. Click on the three dots menu button.
  2. Go to Help and feedback.
  3. Click on Send feedback.
  4. Fill out the form.
  5. Include your email address and make sure Allow (recommended) is selected for Send diagnostic data to Microsoft.
  6. Once completed, click on Send.




I want to let you know that the engineering team is investigating this. 





This update doesn't appear to address the issue with color inputs that use <datalist>


See this example:


When using version 107 or 108 it changes the selection to white/black rather than the chosen colour.

In version 106 this seemed to work fine.


I've provided feedback through the app but are you able to confirm that this is a bug, or is it an intentional change that I need to somehow workaround?



Could you pin this discussion? The pinned discussions for Dev channel release are quite old...
Password Autofill not working... i select from the dropdown menu but it does not fill it up...
Also, slow laggy built in password manager issue still not fixed..


Turns out this is a Chromium bug potentially. Hopefully it gets a merge soon.

Sorry for the late reply. The engineers are aware of this and investigating.

I want to update you that we fixed the username and password autofill in the latest Canary and Dev build.
