Dev channel update to 92.0.891.1 is live


Hello Insiders!  Today we’re releasing build 92.0.891.1 to the Dev channel.  We’ve got lots of exciting changes to talk about, so let’s jump right into it! 


Added features: 


  • Added a dark gray theme to Immersive Reader.
  • Added a Setting to turn on or off vertical tabs in all currently open windows. 
  • Added a setting to hide the title bar when tabs are in vertical mode. 
  • Finished rolling out Microsoft Rewards integration in the Account button. 
  • Added support for remembering the pin state of the History and Downloads menus (remembering pin state in general is still controlled behind a flag). 


Improved reliability: 


  • Fixed an issue on Mac where dragging a tab out of a window sometimes crashes the browser. 
  • Fixed a crash on startup on Mac. 
  • Fixed an issue on Mac where the browser sometimes doesn’t open if multiple profiles are present. 
  • Fixed a crash when using Shopping features. 
  • Fixed an issue where some websites fail to install as apps. 
  • Fixed a hang when using IE mode tabs. 


Changed behavior: 


  • Improved the Cookies In Use dialog. 
  • Fixed an issue where tabs sometimes aren’t restored after the browser is forcibly closed by a Windows Update-initiated machine restart. 
  • Fixed an issue where certain site data is deleted when the browser closes due to the setting to do so being turned on, even though those sites were on the exception list and thus should have been preserved. 
  • Fixed an issue where searching for settings sometimes causes the Settings page to go blank. 
  • Fixed an issue on Mac where some parts of the fullscreen Shy UI don’t respond to input. 
  • Fixed an issue where videos sometimes aren’t scaled or sized properly. 
  • Fixed an issue where the search sidebar sometimes can’t be closed. 
  • Fixed an issue where PWAs or websites installed as apps that are installed in multiple profiles sometimes have multiple Taskbar shortcuts instead of just one. 
  • Fixed an issue where websites installed as apps sometimes don’t have icons on their shortcuts when they should. 
  • Fixed an issue where changing the copy/paste settings doesn’t affect content already on the clipboard. 
  • Fixed an issue where tooltips sometimes are placed incorrectly. 
  • Fixed an issue where the profile picture on the profile Settings page sometimes is broken. 
  • Fixed an issue where the pages that open when the browser is first opened sometimes change unexpectedly. 
  • Fixed an issue where certain navigations are blocked that shouldn’t be when Family Safety is enabled. 
  • Fixed an issue in kiosk mode where the browser never resets after an allotted period of time if the current page is in IE mode. 


Known issues: 


  • Certain extensions such as the Microsoft Editor extension don’t work on Linux.  As soon as they’re installed, they crash and are disabled.  We’re currently investigating. 
  • Users of certain ad blocking extensions may experience playback errors on Youtube.  As a workaround, temporarily disabling the extension should allow playback to proceed.  See this help article for more details. 
  • Some users are still running into an issue where all tabs and extensions immediately crash with a STATUS_INVALID_IMAGE_HASH error.  The most common cause of this error is outdated security or antivirus software from vendors like Symantec, and in those cases, updating that software will fix it. 
  • Users of the Kaspersky Internet Suite who have the associated extension installed may sometimes see webpages like Gmail fail to load.  This failure is due to the main Kaspersky software being out of date, and is thus fixed by making sure the latest version is installed. 
  • Some users are still seeing favorites get duplicated.  This issue should be reduced now that automatic deduplication has been introduced into Insider channels, but we’re still rolling that out in Stable.  We’ve also seen duplication happen when running the manual deduplicator on multiple machines before either machine has a chance to fully sync its changes, so make sure to leave plenty of time in between runs of the deduplicator. 
  • Some users are seeing “wobbling” behavior when scrolling using trackpad gestures or touchscreens, where scrolling in one dimension also causes the page to subtly scroll back and forth in the other.  Note that this only affects certain websites and seems to be worse on certain devices.  This is most likely related to our ongoing work to bring scrolling back to parity with Edge Legacy’s behavior, so if this behavior is undesirable, you can temporarily turn it off by disabling the edge://flags/#edge-experimental-scrolling flag. 


As always, all of the feedback to give is what makes this all possible!

The close button on tabs and the downloads button are missing the highlight. All the buttons inside the address bar are too, although I noticed it was already like that before updating to 891, and at least for those, I like it.
And the new tab button is red. I thought you guys changed to show it with our Windows accent color (since mine is red), but I've changed to blue, closed and opened Edge, and it's still red, so I guess not :(
Still no enable/disable for extensions in the extensions button menu, which is the one thing that would make it any use to me. And still no UI for left/right clicking the buttons of extensions that won't fit on the toolbar instead of or as well as the extensions button menu, which is abysmal for e.g. 20 more extensions than there's room for on the toolbar. When stable goes to 91 so loses that very usable UI for extra toolbar buttons, if there's no sign of one in Dev/Canary, that's when I uninstall all versions of Edge from laptop and phone.

You appear to design the UI only thinking of average, undemanding users who e.g. re. extensions don't use any or just one or two, and then bodge on ways of serving more demanding users if you can think of a way as an afterthought, rather than considering the needs of both average and demanding users from the get go. And while Google are taking good ideas from you - finally adding middle-click not closing bookmark menus after you introduced it after Google had been refusing requests for this from users for at least 12 years - you are taking the worst idiocies from Google, like destroying what was a good UI for using far more extensions than will fit on the toolbar. It's a great shame.
edge://flags/#edge-vertical-tabs-hide-titlebar is not working in this version



Request for sans-serif font support in Immersive Reader:

  • Great to see the Immersive Reader getting a small enhancement (Dark Gray theme).
  • Alas, IR still only renders pages in a serif font.
  • Providing an option to at least be able to choose "sans serif" in addition to "serif" would be very useful.

Do you know when we will get an option to choose different fonts? 

This flag is no longer needed since you can right-click the title bar and click the hide title bar option



"Added a setting to hide the title bar when tabs are in vertical mode." 


Where can we find this setting please?



Right click the title bar :)

Not here... This might be A/B testing?



Nothing there:





Just tested on my Windows machine and it looks like edge://flags/#edge-vertical-tabs-hide-titlebar still needs to be enabled for the new option to show

The hide titlebar option is on the Appearance page in Settings.

Double checked, not there in the prefs...
I'm liking the hide title bar option for vert tabs.
I think you need to enable the experimental flag first, then the option will be there.

@josh_bodner The ability to hide the title bar for vertical tab users is a great improvement, but it brings with it the problem that an area from which to drag the window become quite hard to find.  The only places you can actually drag the window are

a) on the far right of the menu bar between the menu "..." and the minimise button, .  It would be great to have somewhere on the left 

b) in the very narrow space above the buttons/address bar.

These are okay once you get used to it, but I wonder if the empty space next to the tab actions menu button would be another useful place from which to drag.

Spell checker still not working. Tried multiple languages.

It stopped working after an update, like 4 or 5 versions ago.

@JordanQ thanks! i was forgetting to look for this under edge://flags.

right??? this hide titlebar feature, it's like WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE. lol :sparkling_heart:


Buenos dias.  Intentare  escribir en ingles: 

Good morning, I write to you in English. Since I am a user in Spanish. whoever writes them is an ordinary citizen who makes use of computers for educational purposes. I warmly welcome that there is a version of micrososoft edge for linux (Ubuntu) because it allows me to navigate fluently in this system, really thanks for thinking about linux users, I hope that m will always continue to be implemented and updating this version of egde for linux. On the other hand and from the voice of silence, a voice that may not have significance; but it is a cry that I desire. If they could get a version of microsoft office for linux in native form. It does not matter in the paid version, that is, to acquire a license. and to be able to work comfortably, since computing is universal now. Maybe it does not have all the applications of the original version. I would like this request to reach someone or someone to read it. But it is a request from the human point of view, as a simple user of the world. Thank you. Lords of Microsoft
