Have told this to Mr. Smiley twice and now, will share it with you.
Dev is, STILL, opening upon Startup to New tab. I say "still" because it is set to Startup to MSN Canada. Build 188.8.131.52, now, but, it has always done this. Home page is set to the same, that works fine. Canary is set the same , however, it DOES Startup as set.
Win10 Insider Fast Track went on a new Build today, too. Ergo, that's 3 new Builds in 1 day, if, including Canary.

Maybe that choice is new, doesn't ring a bell, but, I honestly don't recall, for sure.
Yes, certainly lately the start up issue does seem erratic, unstable and unpredictable
Thanks for the info. It helps my discussions with the MS Tech about this.
And, I don't necessarily use it, myself or not all the time. Things must just work right. Your testing is appreciated.

Well, do I have something interesting for you; I’ve narrowed it down a little.
>> IF, hit the taskbar browser icon for Dev & Canary they open the specified page.
>> IF, open Canary from the Start menu, it opens to the specified page.
>> IF, open Dev from the Start menu, it > New tab.
>> Rt Clk menu for the taskbar browser icons:
Hit Microsoft Edge Dev OR Microsoft Canary (the green circled) it > New tab
Hit New Window (the red circled) that, too, > New tab
Edge, to compare (the expectations)
>> Every ‘Click point’ mentioned ⬆ > the specified page. Only exception, of course, is InPrivate.
Issue seems to be in both browser icons’ Rt Clk menu & Dev on the Start menu.
Interesting bag of mess, init, eh?
Anyway, I have given all this ⬆ to the Tech working on the issue with me. I, also, passed on all the anecdotal info you Folks here have brought to my attention regarding this issue. I'll, certainly, do the same with anything further... until & unless this issue is resolved. The effort is being made, at least.
It's nice (seeing) that the response has been prompt, personal & with an enthusiasm to rectify asap. But, has been since I went via MS Edge Support not, Mr. Smiley. A possible/probable bug (something seems 'broken' or not well built) is well addressed by MS Edge Support. Suggestions, requests likes, dislikes, praise & criticsm is most befits Mr. Smiley. If something wronly goes to Support (vs Feedback), you will be notified to submit to :) instead.

Maybe, you didn't realise that I filed a bug on this, I think, possibly before Elliot's. Sounds like we have 2 tickets & 2 Teams working to resolve the same issue. I have been having on-going corresspondence with a specific Tech regarding the matter. Between all of us working on this, maybe, it will be rectified soon(er).
And, btw, yesterday, when I said they opened correctly if from their taskbar icons... that has not been true today. Both are back to not going to the specified page. And both are opening to New tab from the Start menu today; yesterday one of them opened from there correctly.
