Dev channel update to 93.0.957.0 is live


Hello Insiders!  Today we’re releasing build 93.0.957.0 to the Dev channel.  In enterprise news, we’ve got an overview of how to opt into Extended Stable starting in version 94:  And for our web devs, we’re excited to tell you about recent updates to Visual Studio Code that will make debugging easier:  As for what’s new in the product: 


Added features: 


  • Added the ability to change the icon for PWAs or websites installed as apps when they’re installed. 
  • Added management policies (administrative templates and documentation to come): 
    • Added a management policy to control if OneAuth Authentication is Enforced. 
    • Added a management policy to control Printing a Webpage Layout. 
    • Added a management policy to set an Autoplay Allowlist. 
    • Added a management policy to give or take away Feature Flag Overrides Control.  
    • Added a management policy on Mac to control if MAU is Enabled, which controls if updates occur through Microsoft AutoUpdate. 


Improved reliability: 


  • Fixed an issue where the browser doesn’t open. 
  • Fixed an issue on Linux where the browser doesn’t open. 
  • Fixed a crash when typing into the address bar.

  • Fixed a crash when playing certain videos. 
  • Fixed an issue where PWAs can’t be installed or repaired. 
  • Fixed a crash on Mac when syncing Collections. 
  • Fixed an issue where pressing F6 sometimes crashes the browser. 
  • Fixed a hang when closing the browser. 
  • Fixed an issue where the browser sometimes can’t be uninstalled and gives an error saying to close all windows and try again. 


Changed behavior: 


  • Fixed an issue where certain videos don’t have any sound. 
  • Fixed an issue where websites pinned to the Taskbar sometimes unexpectedly disappear. 
  • Fixed an issue on Linux where the Password Settings page is blank. 
  • Fixed an issue where certain AV1 or HEVC videos don’t play. 
  • Fixed an issue on Linux where tabs sometimes disappear visually from the tab band. 
  • Fixed an issue where the cookie exceptions list in the delete browsing data settings sometimes doesn’t remember changes. 
  • Fixed an issue where the PDF viewer sometimes reports being on a different page than it actually is. 
  • Fixed an issue where the button to set the Default browser in Settings doesn’t work. 
  • Fixed an issue where the management policy to import browsing data sometimes misses data. 
  • Fixed an issue where dragging an image into a Collection sometimes fails. 
  • Fixed an issue where the arrow keys sometimes can’t be used to move the cursor when editing a text note in a Collection. 
  • Fixed an issue where empty text notes sometimes crash the Collections pane. 
  • Fixed an issue where the Collections pane sometimes doesn’t fully load. 
  • Fixed an issue where profiles sometimes say Not Syncing when it’s not expected that there should be any message.

  • Fixed an issue where context menu options on certain popups don’t work. 
  • Fixed an issue where deleting a profile sometimes unexpectedly opens a Kids Mode window. 
  • Fixed an issue where autofill popups sometimes don’t appear if the text in the textbox has a misspelling that triggers the spellcheck popup. 
  • Fixed an issue in WebView2 where files with certain names sometimes fail to download. 
  • Fixed an issue in WebView2 where microphones sometimes can’t be used because permission requests are never shown. 
  • Fixed an issue where PDFs that should have Information Protection applied to them don’t. 
  • Fixed an issue where browser windows sometimes open unexpectedly if extensions are installed. 


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. 


For those of you who use Stable, look for version 92 to be coming to it soon!

@josh_bodner - PDFs don't render properly inside the browser on MacOS since an update last month I've attached a screenshot.

@josh_bodner Workspace remove button disappeared

@dejan_008 - Seeing the same issue here on Mac with Dev channel with pdf rendering and printing

@josh_bodner Same problem when opening PDFs with the integrated viewer as mentioned by @dejan_008  and @MarkBarbieri.


It happens at least since v.92 Dev, not tested on other channels.


I have reported this as a bug.

Edge still uses double energy as compared to other browser in mac.
I have attached screenshot


What I have said is not very true:
It is 4th workspace (last one), What I have found:
top 3 have the remove button
rename 4th to other name, remove button does not show
add 5th workspace, 5th has the remove button, 4ths does not have the remove button
remove 5th, 4th becam last one, still has no remove button.

remove 3th, 4th becam 3th, still has no remove button. 

Exactly !!. I am surprised that it has not been fixed for such a long time

@dejan_008 I too face this issue and have submitted 3 reports regarding this. 


Hi. There are display problems. A number of buttons (close-window buttons and others) are present but don't show up. Titles are missing. 




M1 Mac Edge Dev version:

I just don't get it. 4 versions of Edge Dev now and edge://settings/passwords still loads a blank page. On the Windows side Edge Dev has run perfect for me for months. On the M1 Mac, without being able to see the Passwords page, I am sorry to say it's useless. I just don't get how this keeps getting not resolved???????


I am having the same issue.  With the last update, the active tab information was blank.  Now, many of the buttons have disappeared.  Clicking in the area still makes the appropriate action take place. 

@dejan_008 this isn't the first report we've gotten of this issue, and we're looking into it.  

@BobD68 Every week we've been fixing a different cause of that blank settings page, but none of them have apparently been doing it for the new Macs!  We're still working on it.  

Thank you for the reply. I wasn't "ranting" :-)))) Just maybe stressing the point :-)))))))))) I know you're all working hard.

Screenshot from 2021-07-23 12-10-49.png


Screenshot kind of says it all: in this new version, every single Edge Dev window has this black border around it.

  • Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS, kernel 5.8.0-63-generic

  • Version 93.0.957.0 (Official build) dev (64-bit)

  • NVIDIA-SMI 460.91.03 Driver Version: 460.91.03 CUDA Version: 11.2

Edit: It is still annoying that I can't sync with my work account in either Edge Dev or Beta.

@josh_bodner - Thank you for confirming this - I know it's not the first report as I previously reported it as well, but this being somewhat of critical display problem I'm not sure why it isn't listed in the known issues

So that's that. Well, you'll be pleased to know this is the last time I'll be going on about this.


You have now done it. Ever since the Extensions button was added and the expanded area for toolbar buttons at the top of the More.. menu was removed from Canary and Edge, I have repeatedly sent feedback about how this is NO GOOD for people like me who use e.g. 20 more extensions with toolbar buttons that need right- and left clicking on frequently than will fit on the toolbar (for me, only a max of 10 fit on the toolbar while leaving a big enough URL bar, so that's 30 buttons total leaving 20 not visible in the toolbar). The Extensions button may have use for MANAGING extensions (though would be a lot more useful if it contained options to disable/enable, not just uninstall) but it is no good for USE. The old UI with the expanded toolbar area at the top of the MORE menu presented ONLY the buttons NOT visible on the toolbar, had the buttons displaying and working the same as on the toolbar, and presented 6 per line meaning 20 are on only 4 lines at the top of the menu, all close to get to after clicking on MORE. And on top of that the buttons could be re-ordered as on the toolbar so one could put those often used at the top in easy reach.


The extensions dropdown menu is simply not anywhere near being a suitable alternative for USE of the extensions, for accessing them to frequently left and right click on them. ALL extension buttons are there, including the ones already visible on the toolbar, making it harder to find the one wanted and requiring more moving and scrolling; they are one per line in the menu. requiring moving the mouse much further and having to scroll to get at many; and it's not even possible to change them from alphabetical order to put those most used in easy reach so not needing scrolling (as well as having to try to remember sometimes odd names of extensions to then know how far down the list to look).

It is just not acceptable to me, and is something basic and fundamental to Edge's UI for browsing that no number of vertical menus, PDF reading enhancements, bells, whistles or shiny toys make up for.

I have repeatedly said, in reports land in comments here after each Dev release, that if Canary and Dev showed no sign of an acceptable UI for many more extension buttons than fit in the toolbar - whether restoring the old one alongside the extensions button for extension management (there's no reason why it has to be one or the other rather than both), or something new - before the old UI disappeared from Stable, I would be quitting even trying Edge - and on my Android phone too, as I need browsers on phone and laptop that work together. My copy of Stable has just updated to 92.0.902.55. The expanded toolbar area at the top of the MORE menu has gone, while the Extensions button, just as it still is in Canary and Dev, has replaced it. It therefore now fails my basic needs as a browser in all versions. After I have posted this, I will be uninstalling all versions of Edge from both my laptop and my phone and giving up on Edge for good. And unsubscribe from here as there's no point me staying subscrobed.


Great job. That change to the UI for more extensions than will fit on the bar has completely killed this program for me. Luckily the recent Proton update to Firefox has cleaned it up, speeded it right up, and managed to clean up and simplify the basic interface while not removing all the features for more advanced and demanding users. Good bye.

Drama much?

The issue from @jcursiolf's screenshot is really bad here. Normal windows have huge black borders around it in Linux now. And PWA style windows (those without the address bar) have no border at all!
