@Eric_E  the sidebar improvements are great, starting to see use cases for news sites and others that are useful at a glance.  Do wish however the sidebar could be merged with the vertical tab bar, would probably also make sense to access collections from the sidebar as well.

I thought that by reverting the recent touch changes it would mean that opening the context menu of vertical tabs would work with touch again, but no, it's still broken. Opening the context menu of pinned tabs when using vertical tabs does work with touch, however.


i've 2 test devices both in the same policy groups that have both upgraded to this release...
within edge://settings

1 has sidebar (between appearance and Start, home and new tabs) and the other does not???
the one that does can go to edge://settings/sidebar - the other cannot

both have the sidebar tools removed

any ideas?

@Migue333 the engineering team is currently looking into this, but we don't have an ETA at this time.

Thanks @Eric_E will send the feedback.

@Eric_E on an Intel MacBook Pro (2018) with Ventura 13.1, I'm finding that PWA's and sites that are installed as apps are crashing whenever a key is pressed while the PWA is focused.


To reproduce, install as an app, then try entering text in the search bar.  


I've tested on the same machine with release Version 108.0.1462.46 (Official build) (x86_64) and it works fine.  I had no issues prior to Version 110.0.1556.0 (Official build) Dev(x86_64)


@MarkBarbieri Thanks for providing the steps to reproduce this. I will notify the engineering team.



@Eric_E Sidebar resizing isn't working for me when I use it as a "search in sidebar", but it does when I click on the sidebar "apps". Being able to resize the search one too would be great.

I would like that the crash issue of edge when playing web based game that have lots of animations and video loaded (such as clicker game) and then stream video in other tab could be fixed.
Maybe it's related with RAM usage efficiency and allocation, because my PC has 32 gb ddr 5 with xms (corsair) but often has edge crashed, here are two latest crash dump
I'm having same problem - PWA app of Outlook crashing with any key click. Frustrating.

@Eric_E Hello Mr. Eric, I have send the feedback with the latest 5 crashed through the form you mentioned

@minfong88 I appreciate you taking the time to send those feedback.  The engineering team will investigate them.

Why slow built in password manager still not got fixed...?! Edge Password manager is so laggy when searching for a site or email ...! i reported this like year ago and it still never got fixed.. i had no such laggy issue in chrome, brave or chromium browser...
@Eric_E 我注意到新的版本中,打开收藏夹栏的网站时,浏览器会自动在一个新标签页打开,虽然比较方便,但是打开比较多的网站后,标签页过多,显得过于密集和杂乱。能不能提供一个选项,让用户自己选择?

@DarkCoder I wanted to let you know that our engineering team is actively working on this. However, I don't have a specific timeline for when it will be resolved. I apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.
