UPDATE 2: We published 334.4 today to more broadly disable favorites sync, which should fix some sync-related crashes that users have been experiencing.
UPDATE: We published 334.3 today to fix an issue where navigation on some websites was taking an extraordinarily long time for some users. We're also hoping to publish another small revision next week to fix a couple of known crashes.
Hello insiders, today we’re releasing build 80.0.334.2 to the Dev channel! The most important thing to know this week is that, after last week’s sync issues, we’ve temporarily disabled favorites sync to prevent any more duplication. As for the other noteworthy changes:
We won’t be updating next week due to the holidays, but in the meantime we’re very thankful for all your feedback and suggestions!

@josh_bodner Thanks for finally adding the ability to sort favourites. However the process was not exactly intuitive like it is in the old Edge. In old Edge I could right click on the pop down favourites list. Whereas in the Chromium version I have to go to manage favourites and then search for exactly the right place to right click.
So better than no sorting but no where near as good as the old Edge ... or even IE.

@josh_bodner Another update, still NO scrolling fixes even a week after scrolling issues were said to be addressed.
Please... just directly translate the ENTIRE scrolling and zooming behaviour from the Classic MS Edge/UWP source code...
To make Classic Edge, how did Microsoft take the Win32-centric Internet Explorer and make the scrolling actually better than every other browser including Safari on iOS (the OS where today's touch scrolling experience originated)?
You need to do the same for Edge Chromium. In part due to Chromium's weird relationship with Win32 and half-hearted attempts to make Chromium's UI platform-agnostic, it has various rendering issues everywhere across the UI (e.g. tooltips were previously rendering with incomplete borders, or the still longstanding issue of the address toolbar having a 2px grey bottom border on HiDPI screens when maximised but not when minimised). I believe these also affect the scrolling behaviour.
Why is Internet Explorer Mode scrolling and zooming 60 FPS within Chromium Edge but Chromium Edge's own scrolling/zooming behaviour terrible in comparison?
I will upload a video comparison of Edge Chromium and Classic Edge/IE Mode rendering and scrolling behaviour later/tomorrow.

Please make it a priority to:
If needed I will even work for free to be your scrolling QA Lead...
The quality of scrolling in Chromium Edge, in most if not all areas, is unacceptable. You could make even Internet Explorer's scrolling/zooming perfect. You can do it for Chromium Edge....

Just curious, is there a reason that the Overlay Scrollbar is missing from the Flags? i like the hide-able scrollbar but this feature has been missing from the Dev browser for quite some updates now.

@josh_bodner "we’ve temporarily disabled sync to prevent any more data duplication."
I checked my settings. Sync is still on. Should I manually disable it if it haven't been disabled automatically? or... Is this change serverside?
Thanks in advance :)

This update has made Dev almost unusable for me. Sites take forever to load, images are squares until it finally loads the page fully (20sec-1min). Chrome works just fine, etc.
Restarted browser multiple times, restarted PC as well.
Anyone else seeing this?
Update: noticed the last bullet point about the GPU process - this helped for a few minutes but then back to crawling.

On Dev and Canary channels, I'm still getting logged out of Disqus whenever I refresh or open a new page. At least the "PlayReady DRM for Windows 10" flag was reimplemented, which needs to be disabled in order to have HD playback on Amazon Prime Video content. Looks like I'll have to stick to Beta build until Edge Chromium goes gold in January.

@Yoneff in case you haven't seen it yet, we've got a discussion going here about what you'd like to see us do with that feature: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Discussions/Provide-run-open-save-save-as-options-when-downlo....

@Jordan Paris and everybody else seeing this, we finally got this issue root caused today, and it has to do with what kind of TPM your machine has, which is why not everybody is seeing this. The fix for it should be in either tomorrow or Friday's Canary, and we're hoping to also patch Dev with this fix since we aren't doing a full Dev update next week and don't want to leave people hanging.

Hi, I'm still facing this issue, and have been for weeks

@josh_bodner -- Does anyone have issues with their profile picture not showing on this build? The previous one was okay, but this build is blank. I signed out and back in to see and even editing it shows the correct picture on MS site.

For those who have Canary channel, have the freeze caused by GPU process hanging and Disqus being repeatedly logged out issues fixed?
