Environment friendly feedback - aka recycled since none of it has been done and is blocking for a browser change
1. Google integration - No thanks. I value privacy - not Google profit
2. Fix the favorites icon - it's still the wrong one
3. Add these buttons to the favorites menu
3. prevent mouse button hijacking

Re edge chromium, can you look to integrate the Windows 10 back arrow function into the browser, to go back to the list page as per the current windows edge browser function?

@josh_bodner v79.0.279 switched my Bing/MSN new tab landing page to the Czech language, which is the locale for my physical location. However, I had it set to UK English and would like to keep it there.
The Bing search box is in Czech, but searching defaults to bing.com in English.
MSN news are in Czech only and cannot be switched back to English or any other locale.
The URL for the new tab landing page appears to still have locale=en-gb in it.

@josh_bodner I think these forums might be a little funky, too. Having this thread + Settings + "Welcome back!" triggered high CPU usage on this latest 79.0.279.0 dev build...completely out of the blue.
Closing the forum tab did nothing for ~30 seconds and then the CPU usage dropped back down to normal.
Screenshots taken ~30 seconds apart, reverse order:
21.8% CPU usage (two tabs)
Forum page definitely...broken
21.6% CPU usage
40.5% CPU usage
40.8% CPU usage
49.8% CPU usage
It'd been at 80% usage before I heard the fans finally whir up. A weird bug.; hopefully a one-off!

Still no mention of having (as an option, if necessary) middle-click (touchpad three-fingered tap) on a favorite leaving the favorites menu open. Can't use this (or any other) browser that does not have this, so only open each new Edge Canary and Dev build once simply to test if this has been included.

In our Public Sector environment, SSO is working for our onprem sharepoint environment. However, when trying to leverage external pages with other Public Sector Agencies, when it tries to leverage ADFS for authentication it asks for userid/pass instead of passthrough for smartcard authentication, like it does in Edge and IE11.

Feature Request: This feature request is highly needed for the Public Sector for Federal Agencies, which is the ability to digitally sign a pdf in Edge with a Smart Card. If the function was added to digitally sign a PDF with a Smart Card, many federal agencies wouldn't have to depend on the 3rd party application Adobe Reader for this one specific function and could fully leverage Edge for PDFs instead. @David Rubino @josh_bodner
