Error when installing the Power Apps site as a web app

Contributor

I would like to install the Power Apps site as a web app which I can successfully.  However, when I close the web app and open it I get the error you see below.  Same thing happens if I pin the site to Windows Start and I open it from there.  I noticed that when the site is opened as a web app or from the pinned shortcut it opens https://make.powerapps.com/index.html but when I go to www.office.com and choose Power Apps from the list of apps the address is https://make.powerapps.com/environments/Default-code_stuff/home.  INote: I didn't include the actual "code stuff".  So when I put that address into InPrivate Edge it brings up the M365 login.  That means the web app is not re-directing to login which brings up the error page.  Anyone know if this is a known issue?

Hi, @Rich Lusk 

 

I'm seeing the same thing in Edge version 90.0.789.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit)

my PowerApp works fine (left side) but the home page (right side) shows an error.

 

if you haven't already, please submit a feedback using the feedback button on Edge

(shortcuts: Alt + Shift + i )

 

I think it's because when installing the home page of PowerApps, Edge saves this URL:

https://make.powerapps.com/index.html

while in fact it should save this URL:

https://make.powerapps.com/environments/Default-6**************************a848/home

 

 

 

 

Thank you @HotCakeX for confirming that.  Yes I submitted feedback as well.  I agree with you that Edge uses the wrong URL for the web app.  Interesting.  I wonder if web apps only use the root of a URL and ignores anything after a forward slash?

Yes I think so, but the problem is that Edge adds extra characters at the end of the URL, another example I just tried and successfully reproduced is on Instagram.

 

I went to this page on Edge: https://www.instagram.com/spacex/?hl=en

then installed it as a PWA.

closed all browser windows and PWAs.

clicked on that Instagram PWA icon and I got an error, checked the URL and it was pointing to:

https://www.instagram.com/?utm_source=pwa_homescreen

 

so it removed everything after the slash '/' and then added these characters:

"?utm_source=pwa_homescreen",

resulting in an error:

Again, interesting. Hopefully someone on the Edge team will jump in on this discussion. Looks like Edge isn't handling the URL correctly when installing an app.
Yeah, I sent feedback for both occasions and will send more if i encounter other websites.
