ExtensionSettings policy update

Copper Contributor



As per the post here, chromium extensions are no longer able to navigate to file URLs as of Edge (and Chrome) version 118.

This behaviour can be modified for a particular extension via the new file_url_navigation_allowed ExtensionSettings policy, This has been added to Chrome 119. I tried the Edge Beta (119.0.2151.38) and Edge Developer Build (120.0.2172.1), both of which report:

ErrorError at ExtensionSettings.<extensionId>: Schema validation error: Unknown property: file_url_navigation_allowed


Can you schedule this for Edge and let me know what version it will be released in please?

If this is not the right place for this type of request please let me know where I should post it. 


I have tried the latest Developer build (120.0.2186.2) and the issue still occurs. 

@Markw290I to would like to see this in edge as well. Chrome uses the "file_url_navigation_allowed". This doesn't appear to be in this guide:



Anybody has news about this?

I'm testing with Edge canary (121.0.2220.3) and in edge://policy/ I have an 'Unknown property: file_url_navigation_allowed' error for the ExtensionSettings policy
