After searching, I see this was reported before, but I thought it was worth bringing up because the fix is no longer available in the lastest Edge (dev).

 

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
  <style>
    div { background-color: #ff8000 }
  </style>
  <title>Color test</title>
</head>
<body>
  <div style="width: 200px; height: 200px">Test	</div>
</body>
</html>

 

Now, view the resulting page in old Edge, Firefox take a screenshot, and put it in a paint program, use a eyedropper, and see what color the browser made the box.  The correct answer is #ff8000 (obviously).  The Edge (dev) shows the color as #e08808.  Obviously, this is wrong.

 

Previously, you could fix this by going to "edge://flags/#force-color-profile" and setting it to "sRGB".  This option no longer exists in Edge (dev).   As a result this went from "incorrect default behavior" to "incorrect default behavior that cannot be fixed with a setting".  Should someone file a bug report with this, or ...?
