Edge Group Policies need to "merge" for lists not replace.


Also posted in Enterprise but it seems quiet there.

In Group Policy for IE if you add "pop-up allow list" at a root group policy, and then another lower group policy the pop-up lists MERGE.  So pop-ups allowed in the root policy and pop-ups allowed in the lower policies BOTH get added to the computer.

This goes for all the other IE GPO settings.

However, for Microsoft Edge it is a REPLACE in policy and registry which is really, really bad for Enterprise.

We need this fixed so it mimics IE and if we set it in a root policy and add new pop-up allow sites for a specific group that those sites are appended to the root policy and not replacing it.
