When downloading files using IE Mode (Compatibility) through Edge, they download and finish fine. Upon trying to close the Edge browser later it gives a warning - see attached. Selecting to close anyway closes the browser without a problem - it's just the annoying pop-up.

 

If you select Continue downloading, the IE downloads window opens and all downloads have already finished. Checking the Edge downloads area, all downloads have already finished. I can reproduce this issue on any PC running the latest version Edge 80.0.361.66 (64Bit) when using IE Mode. It's like IE/Edge aren't talking to each other that downloads are actually finished and giving this pop-up.

- When downloading files in IE by itself, the issue isn't present.

- When downloading files in Edge by itself, the issue isn't present.

@Neviden Same issue here. Since we use our legacy SharePoint in IE Mode this happens all the time.
