Is anyone running either the Dev or Canary builds of Edge for MacOS seeing their Quick Link icons?
My icons have been broken for over a week now. I already submitted feedback. Just wondering if everyone is having this problem or if it's something specific to me.

even though not using Mac, but I've been seeing that for a week as well on Windows, first Canary and then Dev since the last update. saw a couple of other users reporting the same thing.
I think whatever broken them is somehow related to this because it also appeared around the same time as the bug.
the fact that they are adding a 2nd row to the quick links and that broke something in the process. just my thoughts :)

@HotCakeX Thank you, I'm glad knowing it's not something particular to me.
The 2 row control feature is not yet on MacOS, but when inspecting the New Tab Page's code I saw references to two lines of Quick Links.
At one point I tried removing all the quick link icons to see if that would fix the problem. As I deleted each icon, one appeared in its place -- standard links like Bing, Wikipedia, etc... Those standard links did have work icons.

Happen to me as well: Windows 10, Microsoft Edge Dev build 91.0.852.0. All newtab page icon are broken. But in stable build, it works just fine (no icon broken).
Looks like internal database/file system corruption, since this link try to fetch icon from local files (although I don't know where they actually being stored in file system).

@Rohit Yadav I hope I am able to download it soon. I think there's something wrong with the new upgrade mechanism on MacOS. I'm getting "An error occurred. (Error code: 5) (Extra code: 0)" This had been working great until today.

it's still broken in Version 91.0.862.0
the rows are set to 2 but only 1 is shown.
when you set it to off, they are still shown.
Maybe in the next version or future versions quick links will be completely fixed.

Good news -- This issue appears to be fixed on MacOS (DEV branch) with the upgrade this morning. I received notification via email from MS thanking me for the report and letting me know that it's been fixed.
Unfortunately I haven't been able to upgrade CANARY for several days due the in-app upgrade not working properly so it's still broken on my installation of CANARY.
There's a separate discussion thread about the CANARY upgrading bug. I don't know how widespread that problem is.
