Mit Version 90.0.782.0 steht der erste Build von Microsoft Edge 90 im Dev Channel für Entwickler zum Testen bereit. Microsoft spendiert dem auf Chromium basierenden Browser neben den obligatorischen Optimierungen und Fehlerkorrekturen auch Verbesserungen im Bereich der Downloads sowie des „InPrivate“-Modus.

Microsoft verbessert das PDF-Inking

Mittels PDF-Inking lassen sich ganz einfach wichtige Stellen in Dokumenten markieren und unterschreiben sowie Notizen verfassen. Diesen Bereich will Microsoft mit der neuen Version weiter verbessert und die Latenz reduziert haben. In einem separaten Beitrag in der Tech Community geht der Hersteller detaillierter auf diesen Punkt ein.

Zudem wurden das Menü für den „InPrivate“-Modus sowie der Dialog für die verwendeten Cookies ausgebaut, der jetzt umfangreichere Informationen ausgibt.

AdBlocker sorgen noch immer für Probleme

Nach wie vor führt die Verwendung einiger AdBlocker zu Abstürzen und Fehlermeldungen auf dem Videoportal YouTube, ein Problem das Microsoft bereits im Juni des vergangenen Jahres gemeinsam mit den Insidern adressiert hatte.

Die offiziellen Release Notes listen die folgenden Neuerungen für Microsoft Edge 90.0.782.0 auf:

Added features:
  • Improved on smoothness and latency when inking PDFs.
  • Added the Collections item to the … menu in InPrivate windows since Collections are now supported in InPrivate.
  • Improved the Cookies In Use dialog to show more information about a given cookie.
  • Added a management policy to manage the Smart Actions Block List, which prevents certain context menu actions from being available, and for Windows Hello For HTTP Auth Enabled to control whether or not the basic credential prompt appears for NTLM or Negotiate. Note that updates to administrative templates or documentation may not be available yet.
  • Enabled support for the management policy from Chromium to configure the Managed Configuration Per Origin for websites installed as apps.

Wie für eine Entwicklerversion üblich, gehen auch mit dem neueste Build wieder zahlreiche Änderungen im Verhaltens des Browsers einher:

Changed behavior:
  • Fixed an issue where setting Autoplay settings to Block causes Read Aloud online voices to fail.
  • Fixed an issue where newly-opened tabs are blank.
  • Fixed an issue where certain trackpads cause scrolling to happen too fast.
  • Disabled ShyUI in PWAs and websites installed as apps.
  • Fixed an issue where opening a PWA or website installed as an app sometimes results in two windows being opened: the regular app window but with no content, and a generic browser popup window with the content.
  • Fixed an issue where switching profiles in a PWA sometimes fails.
  • Fixed an issue where the Favorites or History menus sometimes appear in the wrong place on screen.
  • Fixed an issue where searching for a Setting sometimes doesn’t work.
  • Fixed an issue where there are sometimes duplicate Edge shortcuts on the Taskbar.
  • Fixed an issue where Immersive Reader shows up as eligible on certain websites it shouldn’t.
  • Fixed an issue where certain websites installed as apps have too big of an icon when their tile is pinned to the Start menu.
  • Fixed an issue where websites installed as apps are missing the … icon on their … menu button.
  • Fixed an issue where the save button when editing a Collection item is invisible.
  • Obsoleted the management policy for Stricter Mixed Content Treatment Enabled. Note that this policy hasn’t been functional since version 85.
Microsoft Edge 90.0.782.0 – Release Notes

Zu guter Letzt listet Microsoft auch die bisher noch nicht behobenen Fehler in der aktuellen Version auf:

Known issues:
  • Certain extensions such as the Microsoft Editor extension don’t work on Linux. As soon as they’re installed, they crash and are disabled. We’re currently investigating.
  • Users of certain ad blocking extensions may experience playback errors on Youtube. As a workaround, temporarily disabling the extension should allow playback to proceed.
  • Some users are still running into an issue where all tabs and extensions immediately crash with a STATUS_INVALID_IMAGE_HASH error. The most common cause of this error is outdated security or antivirus software from vendors like Symantec, and in those cases, updating that software will fix it.
  • Users of the Kaspersky Internet Suite who have the associated extension installed may sometimes see webpages like Gmail fail to load. This failure is due to the main Kaspersky software being out of date, and is thus fixed by making sure the latest version is installed.
  • Some users are seeing favorites get duplicated after we made some previous fixes in that area. The most common way this is triggered is by installing the Stable channel of Edge and then signing into it with an account that has already signed into Edge before. This issue should be reduced now that automatic deduplication has been introduced into Insider channels. However, we’ve also seen duplication happen when running the manual deduplicator on multiple machines before either machine has a chance to fully sync its changes, so while we wait for the automatic deduplication to make it to Stable, make sure to leave plenty of time in between runs of the deduplicator.
  • Some users are seeing “wobbling” behavior when scrolling using trackpad gestures or touchscreens, where scrolling in one dimension also causes the page to subtly scroll back and forth in the other. Note that this only affects certain websites and seems to be worse on certain devices. This is most likely related to our ongoing work to bring scrolling back to parity with Edge Legacy’s behavior, so if this behavior is undesirable, you can temporarily turn it off by disabling the edge://flags/#edge-experimental-scrolling flag.
