Hi @fawkes 

Thank you, of course I sent the same content of this post as feedback on Edge,

 

by the way I have a question, in which situations and for what kind of bugs/problems "recreate my problem" in Edge feedback is most useful?

because I see it only generates a network.log file so I'm not sure whether I should use it only for problems happening in connection/network Or will it generate useful log for a problem happening, for example, in a website, display, bug in UI and so on too?
