Nice to see the Tab Hover Card Images flag turn up that's been in Google Chrome for ages.
And it would have been nice that we finally got access to the edge:flags page in the last Android Edge release ... apart from the fact that it only shows ONE flag!
Still no History and Open Tabs sync in desktop or Android Edge. In a world where most people have a smart phone, and a lot of them also a desktop/laptop so likely to need syncing, it beggars belief you'd public release the software without all the syncs, and even more we'd be this many months along still without it.
The no-rubber-banding scrolling personality switch is still a flag, not a setting, and you are STILL saying in each of these Dev release posts that the ability to turn it off and keep normal scrolling is temporary. So long as that is the case I will never change to Edge.
And still no ability to pin chosen topsites to the new tab page or have 'darkified' web pages in Android Edge.
So I run each release of desktop Canary and Dev and Android Beta precisely once for about two minutes just to check for any development in any of these things, and week after week, month after month there's none, while the developers play around with adding more and more pretty bells and whistles I couldn't care less about.
The fact that there have been so many desktop and Android releases over so many months without a single one of the issues I care about progressed at all leaves me very depressed and ready to give up. And now your colleagues have screwed up the Microsoft Launcher for Android, while other of your colleagues have screwed up To Do. I'm thinking its time to give up on Microsoft software.

Not sure if this has been addressed but while using build 86.0.587.0 on Windows 10 version 2004, there seems be an issue with uploading pictures to Facebook. When I try upload pictures to Facebook, the dialog box appears behind the Edge window and full screen. This also freezes my computer for a few seconds. I have only noticed this strange behavior when I use Facebook. I often upload pictures to Weebly without any issue.

@david-bell the Edge feature responsible for telling windows about all its open tabs so it can put them in the alt+tab menu had to be temporarily disabled (it was one of the causes of the fullscreen issues people have been seeing recently), so that's probably why it's not working at the moment.

@josh_bodner Hi! Just updated to this version and the "Display variable values inline while debugging" in DevTools is no longer working.
I've tried deselecting the setting and selecting it again, computer restart and no luck.
Is there anything I can provide you with ofr further analysis of the issue?

I still get a crash every time Edge updates if I click on the update window "Close" button after the browser has relaunched with the new version. The only way to not get the crash is to quit the browser, then click "Close" and relaunch the browser once again.

Update: For anyone interested, it's a bug in the chromium core, related to a change in the SVG engine. They meanwhile fixed it in Chrome Canary v 86.0.4226.0, so hopefully it will be included in Edge Dev and Canary within the next couple days.
Since v 86.0.594.1 I can't login to discord anymore, on both Dev and Canary. I've tested on different machines, I always just get this error screen:
And yes, it definitely worked before the update to 86.0.594.1.

@josh_bodner I do let the browser fully load (several windows open and probably 30-40 tabs total). Then I did wait another 10 seconds or so and only then pressed the "Close" button the last time. One of the previous upgrades when the crash happened I did send feedback using the Edge "Send Feedback" feature so you should have the relevant logs from that one.

@dejan008 Good to know, our system does look for crashes that happen around the same time as when feedback is sent, so we've definitely got it then. One other thing to look out for if you've got Canary installed is if the same thing happens there. If not, we've either already fixed it, or it's something about your specific Dev install or profile that's leading to it.
