Known bugs in this release

  • Users of some ad blocking extensions may experience playback errors on Youtube. As a workaround, temporarily disabling the extension should allow playback to continue.
  • Some users still have an issue where all tabs and extensions immediately crash with the STATUS_INVALID_IMAGE_HASH error. The most common cause of this error is outdated anti-virus or security software from vendors such as Symantec, and in these cases updating that software will fix the problem.
  • Kaspersky Internet Suite users who have installed the associated extension may sometimes see web pages such as Gmail not loading. This error is caused because Kaspersky’s core software is outdated, so it is resolved by ensuring that the latest version is installed.
  • Some users experience “jittery” behavior when scrolling using trackpad gestures or touchscreens. Here, scrolling in one dimension also causes the page to scroll subtly in the other. Please note that this only affects certain websites and appears to be worse on some devices. This is likely related to ongoing work to bring scrolling back to parity with Edge Legacy behavior. So if this behavior is not desirable, we can temporarily disable it. Disabled the edge://flags/#edge-experimental-scrolling flag.
