I am trying to open a web application in MS Edge in IE compatibility mode. Everytime I launch the application, a popup comes saying "The webpage you are viewing is trying to close the tab. Do you want to close this tab?"
Application works fine after clicking "Yes".
The popup is not generated if I launch the same application on Internet Explorer.
Is there a setting in Edge to disable this popup?

@Gurmeet0107 Hello! Are you the developer of the web application? I found a similar report and wanted to confirm if it is the same situation. Thanks!

@Gurmeet0107 Can you confirm if these repro steps are similar to your scenario?
The scenario works as expected with no prompting in following scenarios:

@Gurmeet0107 Hello! We do have this issue in our backlog but no ETA for the fix. There is a lot of work needed to fix.
One workaround suggested is to renavigate the jump page via script (using window.open targeted at _self) prior to attempting its closure, it counts as a script-initiated window and no longer prompts in IE mode. And the other workaround which you know, is to click through the dialog manually.
Can you share how important this issue is and any impact? I can pass this information on to the team. Thanks!

@Kelly_Y Is there anyway this issue can be tracked such as a public page that contains known issues for Edge?
