What’s new in Microsoft Edge Dev 90.0.782.0
The browser change log contains the following changes.
Microsoft has updated the user interface for launching in the Edge browser. There is a newly designed downloadable panel with the ability to attach it to the right side that works equally well with other Fluent design panels and manuals. The pop-up window contains a number of useful new options.
You can finally add or remove the Downloads button from the Edge toolbar.
Like the Downloads pop-up window, the Collections feature has also been revamped.
Borders collections are now shown in the flyer instead of the sidebar. It is no longer moored on the right side, but it can be moored again on the right side and can be detached at any time.
In addition, the article Collections is now in the … in the InPrivate windows. Microsoft has made collections available in InPrivate.
The download and pickup options were previously only available to a subset of insiders, but the company is now extending the changes to everyone.

Finally, this release contains the following known issues.
- Some extensions, such as. B. the Microsoft Editor extension, does not work on Linux. Once installed, they crash and burn out. We’ll find out.
- Users of some ad blocker extensions may experience reading errors on Youtube. As a temporary solution, playback can be continued by temporarily disabling the extension. See https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/articles/known-issue-adblock-causing-errors-on-youtube/m-p/14… for more information.
- Some users still have the problem that all tabs and extensions are immediately blocked with the STATUS_INVALID_IMAGE_HASH error message. The most common cause of this error is outdated security or antivirus software from vendors such as Symantec, and in these cases the error is fixed by updating this software.
- Kaspersky Internet Suite users who have the correct extension installed sometimes see websites like Gmail not loading. This problem is due to the fact that the main Kaspersky software is outdated, so installing the latest version will fix the problem.
- Some users see their favorites duplicated after we made some corrections in this area. This is usually initiated by setting up a stable Edge channel and then logging into an account previously registered with Edge. This problem should now be solved with the introduction of automatic deduplication in the Insider channels. However, we have also seen cases of duplication when the manual deduplicator runs on different machines before one machine is able to fully synchronize its changes. Thus, until automatic deduplication is stable, there must be sufficient time between passes of the deduplicator.
- Some users notice a vibration when scrolling with trackpad or touchscreen gestures, as scrolling in one dimension also causes a subtle tilt in the other dimension. Note that this is only true for some websites and it seems to be worse on some devices. This is likely due to our ongoing work to equate scrolling with peaking behavior. So if this behavior is unwanted, you can temporarily disable it by unchecking the experimental scroll flag edge://flags/#edge.
This is all due to changes in Edge 90.0.782.0.
Additionally, the company has indicated that the Beta 89 version of Edge will be released later this week. So if you are a beta channel user, expect an update.
