Hi, are you a web developer or designer?

“No, I just want to share feedback on Microsoft Edge.”

Please use the Feedback Hub (requires Windows 10) to submit your feedback in the Microsoft Edge category. This site is for web developer and designer feedback only. Other feedback will be closed without action.

“Yes, I’m a web developer or designer with feedback for the Microsoft Edge platform.”

Great! This site is where the Microsoft Edge team collects feature requests from the web developer and designer community in the categories listed to the right. For bugs on existing features, please log an issue on the Issue Tracker.

  1. Preview documents on Upload

    Can you please display a thumbnail / preview view on the right-hand side when you go into upload documents to a SharePoint Site. It would be handy to preview content inside the document(s) so you can make sure you are uploading the correct document. This is possible with Chrome and IE.

  2. Change to uncheck Use Microsoft compatibility lists as default in about:flags

    This "Use Microsoft compatibility lists" option act as block to visit many websites using edge because this option misdiagnose that sites has compatibility problems

    However those sites doesn't have any compatibility problem with edgehtml and if user change to unchecked this option they can visit all website as they want, that's ridiculous

    Compatibility lists already meaningless option and make Edge most inconvenient browser for most people

    So Edge dev have to uncheck and remove option asap !

  6. remember htaccess login details

    Edge can´t remember htaccess login details. Please add this feature. The workaround with IE is not very useful because i don´t want to use IE.

    If I open the file upload window without specifying the accept attribute, it will accept all files.
    However, an option list is created so that you can select another type.

    The first attachment is the pre-requested file. The second attachment is what you want.

  9. Support for Facebook

    As of 21 october 2017. Edge still hangs on FB on direct messages.
    This bug existed since 2015, and were never fixed.
    Edge needs to be closed and restarted. Then its 50% chance its Facebook compatible. Perssonal messages on requires 2-3 restarts to work. Even more if you don't copy text before closing.

  10. landmark navigation

    I would like to see a feature for navigating to "landmark regions" using the keyboard. Very similar to the way the F6 key works in the Windows Explorer (try it! :)

    Landmark regions can be defined by the page author by either using ARIA landmark roles (http://w3c.github.io/aria/aria/aria.html#landmark_roles), or HTML5 elements that default to having landmark roles (see summary, below, for a list of these elements).
    Note that the generic landmark role="region" - and its corresponding html "section" element - must have a label before it is considered a true landmark, whereas nav, aside, etc do not technically require…

  11. Implement overlay scroll bar (ms-overflow-style)

    When switching between `overflow: scroll` and `overflow: hidden`, the <body> padding changed.
    It is annoying, overlay scroll bar can avoid hack.

    I can use overlay scroll bar at IE (CSS), Chrome (flag), Firefox (add-on),
    Edge should also.

  13. Fix Insufficient colour contrast of select box items in Windows 10

    go to any website with a select box in IE11 or Edge on Windows 10

    Click/tab to expand for options

    The selected/active element has white text and light blue background, that has a contrast ratio of 2.9:1. That makes it inaccessible.

    Resolution: Provide a darker background with higher contrast ratio

  14. Edge mobile scroll bar is invisible on white / light background

    The Edge mobile scrollbar default colour is white

    If the page has a white background the scrollbar is invisible because it blends into the background

    If the page has a black background, you can see the scroll bar normally

    Please update edge so if the page background is white, the scroll bar is a different colour so it is visible and the contrast is ok.
    This should be done automatically for any page we visit

  16. Improve default error style

    When a page contains several input fields that have been marked as required, and the user submits the form, Edge will add a red outline on all fields, and show an error bubble next to the first field with an error (like most browsers).

    It's possible for a website to use the :invalid pseudo selector to add their own styles. But if the field is shown with default styles, then it should be the case that "color is not used as the only visual means of conveying information", which is the case when the error bubble has disappeared.

    This means…

  17. Mouse selection of text on a web page cannot be subsequently extended with the keyboard

    Using touch, a user can create a selection, and little "grabbers" are rendered allowing the user to expand/contract the selection. However, this post-selection-adjustment feature only works for touch.

    When using this mouse, the selection has no "grabbers".

    In both cases, the keyboard cannot be used to adjust the selection. If, instead, I use Firefox or Chrome, the selection can be adjusted by using the keyboard "SHIFT" + arrow keys, to adjust the active selection.

    Please bring this functionality to Microsoft Edge. It will also help with selection keyboard accessibility.

  18. Option to disable OnCopy, OnCut, etc. clipboard options

    Add options to disable clipboard events per site or on an as needed basis. Really, such options are currently an issue for using password managers that put passwords in the clipboard, but then the site disables OnPaste events. Users should be able to override this on a website.

  19. Implement the Iaccessible2 API

    Iaccessible2 - http://accessibility.linuxfoundation.org/a11yspecs/ia2/docs/html/index.html is an open source BSD licensed accessibility API it is implemented in Google Chrome and Firefox. Implementing it in IE/Spartan would mean that assistive tech implementers would have an interoperable accessibility API in all major windows browsers, and could therefore focus their limited resources on supporting it rather than having to implement UI automation just for Microsoft browsers. It would also lead to less buggy implementations of accessibility APIs in browsers. A win for users and implementers.

  20. I do not want any kind of videos or animations to play unless I choose to click on the "Play" button.

    I do not want any kind of videos or animations to play unless I choose to click on the "Play" button.

    This includes Flash, HTML5, GIF, MP4, or any type of video that may be invented.

    What would be ideal is to have a new set of controls in Internet Options that would allow the user to control/override the video controls in all web pages.

    For example, HTML5 has the <video> ... </video> element that has certain attributes:
    autobuffer
    autoplay
    controls
    loop

    The user should be able to control each these attributes on a global basis for all web pages.…
