I'd like to suggest that the Microsoft Sync Pop-Up window be unlocked from allowing access to tabs or other Microsoft Edge browsing areas.  I am sure that there are, or will be other users who need to access a tab or browse to another page at the same time as they are signing up and logging into Sync, to retrieve information, in-particularly the confirmation code.  For example, all of my codes are received SMS, but are relayed automatically to an e-mail account, so it's not as simple as picking up my android or ios device to retrieve the confirmation code.  When working at a computer, I need to be able to switch within the browser to a website to access my e-mail to retrieve the code.  If I close the frozen pop up sync window then I am leaving it without having completed the sync connection and the code needed to be retrieved will no longer be valid.

This shouldn't be a difficult fix, considering its not an issue in Vivaldi or Chrome browser sync.

I'm also not sure why it would be a locked pop-up window anyway.

Thanks

Hi @RDreammaker, I will talk with our security team as to why they set the dialog up as modal.  Thanks - Elliot

Thanks @Elliot Kirk 

A bit of a delay responding on my part. I couldn't find this forums after the last time, until today's auto update showed it again.
