Hi @Deleted 

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?

This is Fixed in Microsoft Edge Version 83.0.471.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit)

@HotCakeX Awesome, glad to hear it!
