Instant crash on MacOS when starting the browser. I see my window and tabs come up and can read the URL in the URL bar... no page content shows... then the browser crashes immediately.

How can I help provide info? Obviously I can't use the help/feedback menu since the browser is crashing.
Tablet mode is gone in this build.

 In case anyone else has this problem on MacOS, I was able to find the prior version of Edge Dev in my home directory and was able to re-install it:

Library/Application Support/Microsoft/EdgeUpdater/apps/msedge-dev/116.0.1938.29

@stevexyz You're lucky. I can't find version 116 anywhere. My titlebar contrast is horrible now and it's no longer using my Windows accent color.

Not sure what changed there but the Android version is basically a complete disaster that crashes in less than 10 seconds after loading up a page. Doesn't happen on every page, but a lot of them.
Same, edge canary (tablet) doesnt' work !


Why are some items red ?

Please see this screenshot :


of course, they are the unavailable tools at the moment, but before, they got the same color...



I have reported the following via the in-app "Send feedback":


  • Cosmetic bug in Edge Dev 117 version: On the WhatsApp app site (, numerous interface elements are rendered with a white drop shadow outline around them since the update to this browser version. This issue does not occur in either Edge or Chrome browsers.

Same here, it's basically useless now.
Since this build, my Settings > Profiles > Passwords page is blank. Disabled extensions, rebooted several times. No change.
Same here on 2 Gentoo Linux systems using microsoft-edge-dev-117.0.2007.0. I reverted to microsoft-edge-dev-116.0.1938.29 and the password screen is working again.
Lost all profiles. How do I get them back? On Windows 11.

@Eric_E Here is my ms edge insider: image.png

- Blank edge://settings/passwords page.
- Lost Windows accent color on title bar, now it's always gray. Note this does not happen when vertical tabs are enabled. Please share some insights on intentions.
- Title bar often does not respond to double-clicking, dragging, or right-clicking. Requires minimizing and restoring the window to be responsive again.

The browser UI is so broken with this release. There are 2X now to close the browser tabs, the favourite bar is twice the size now.

@Sumit Dhiman Facing the exact same issue today. It was fine the entire week.

You can also right-click on the tabs to fix it. Found it out the hard way.
Found the problem - Touch mode in Appearance Settings was set as Auto, turning it off fixed the issue.
