Posted here https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftedge/forum/all/microsoft-edge-dev-ubuntu-20041-manage/6... but I was advised to post here too.

 

Problem: I cannot manage certificates on Ubuntu using this release - specifically I cannot import a privately issued client certificate. When opening edge://settings/?search=certificate I get this...

The link is does not work, so how exactly does one manage [client] certificates in Edge?

 

Contrast this with behaviour in Chromium Version 88.0.4324.50 (Developer Build) Ubuntu 20.04 (64-bit) where this feature is enabled and allows me to manage my certificate requirements...

Hey there @bevand10, welcome to the Tech Community forums!

 

I'm sorry to see you're running in to this issue with managing privately issued certificates. I checked with the team and this is a known issue that they are tracking, unfortunately there isn't a workaround at the moment. Thanks for reporting that you're also experiencing this issue!
