Microsoft Edge Developer

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.

Your feedback will help us with planning and to better understand how web developers and designers are using the platform. Top standards-based feature requests will also be copied over to status.microsoftedge.com, where you can track its development status.

For the most actionable feedback, please search and up vote for existing suggestions before submitting a new suggestion, and create a separate suggestion per idea. Note that off topic or inappropriate suggestions may be moderated. The Microsoft Edge team will use suggestions as an important input, but there are several additional factors that inform the final roadmap.

A note from our lawyers: Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft. See the Terms of Service for more information.

How can we improve the Microsoft Edge developer experience?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

            • Ask for SSL certificate only once per request cycle.

              When accessing a REST interface over https using a client cert, IE will ask for the certificate multiple times during the first request cycle if multiple requests are done. After the first request however, the browser will remember which cert to use.

              • Hide download dialog box

                There should be a way to minimize or hide the download dialog box. If the download takes some time the dialog box prevents interactions with some elements in a webpage.

                • fix error : <datalist> hide part of screen when filtering

                  there is a displaying bug :
                  When <datalist> performs a filter, it continues to hide the same part of the screen as when <datalist> displayed all <option>.

                  For example: https://www.w3schools.com/tags/tryit.asp?
                  filename=tryhtml5_datalist

                  when you click on the input and type a 'i', it hides a part of the text in an ugly way

                  • Favorites Menu - website list

                    The favorites menu is now 6 inches wide even though the longest entry is only 1-2 inches wide. The menu now takes up 6 inches of the screen. please allow the user to make is narrower so we can see the screen. It just looks odd, most of the area is blank.

                    • Bring back classic ASP with jscript

                      I'm the founder of a company producing a web based EHR on classic ASP with jscript (not vbscript) since 2001. I've looked at and tried almost every platform that was or is since then (java, PHP, ASP.NET, Ruby/Rails, node, python, scala, go) and have yet to find a superior development platform.

                      Instead of using vbscript, we chose to use jscript. As the universal language of web development, javascript is now the only language my programmers need to know for both client and server, and every web programmer knows javascript. So, I don't have any problem finding developers. I also don't…

                        • Include TLS security. Most websites require it now, so I have had to stop using Microsoft edge for web browsing.

                          Include TLS security in Microsoft Edge. I have had to install Google Chrome to use the Internet as almost all sites now require TLS security to visit or view.

                          • scrollIntoViewOptions support for scrollIntoView

                            It would be great to have enhanced support of scrollIntoView, by supporting scrollIntoViewOptions parameters (already supported by Firefox for example):

                            Can I use: https://caniuse.com/#feat=scrollintoview

                            MDN doc: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Element/scrollIntoView

                            It is a really simple and smart web API.

                            • "(input[type=file] element).files = dataTransfer.files" fails in Edge

                              We fail to pass "dataTransfer.files" of DragEvent to "files" property of the input[type="file"] element in Edge. For example:

                              HTML:
                              <input id="fileItem" type="file">

                              Javascript:
                              var myfiles = dataTransfer.files;
                              document.getElementById('fileItem').files = myfiles; //This fails in Edge, but no errors are shown in console

                              Steps to Reproduce a Bug:
                              https://jsfiddle.net/vth82jst/2/

                              1. Drag & drop your file to input[type="file"] area
                              2. Check the "drop file name" and "input value"
                              3. Even if we drop a file, the "input value" does not change in Edge (It remains "ファイルは選択されていません" unchanged).

                              I am troubled when I want to select files by drag & drop in Edge.
                              This…

                              • Enable "macros" or tools to playback bug reproduction steps that can be saved, shared and perhaps even extended with custom code.

                                Are you familiar with the popular POSTMAN Chrome extension? It's a super simple tool for defining and saving HTTP requests for playback. While that's nice in itself, what about taking things much further by allowing developers to create 'macros' or custom scripts to run in IE dev tools to help automate things like test cases, bug reproduction steps or more esoteric things like scripts to collect diagnostic information from (nontechnical) clients.
                                It would be nice to have a super-simple way to create scripts to automate tasks *specific* to developer scenarios. (Without the overhead of custom browser extensions and such.)

                                  • Opening a new window should not close an extension's popup window

                                    If my extension's main popup window opens another popup window, the main popup window is closed, effectively aborting the execution of my extension.

                                    For instance, in case of an oauth authentication workflow a new window must be opened the handle the authentication of a login provider such as facebook. Since this closes the main popup window of my extension, this blocks implementing a smooth authentication process in my extension.

                                    Chrome and Opera this works flawlessly, in FireFox they're working on it.

                                    • dev.modern.ie/tools/vms Win10 Preview VM can't install Windows Features

                                      The Windows 10 Preview VM (16.16215) has some issues linking to installation media–it doesn’t seem to be able to find any way (including Windows Update) to install things like optional components. We have a script we run on the Windows 10 Stable VM to install some optional components and run functional tests using Edge, and it works great, but the preview VM can’t install things like .NET Framework 3.5 under Windows Features. I tried several tricks including playing with known group policy settings that affect this, but the VM doesn't seem to acknowledge any source as the correct version of…

                                      • An option, to exclude particular line from stopping at with "break on all exceptions" enabled

                                        Many JS frameworks still use constructs like
                                        try{
                                        do-some-browser1-specific-stuff();
                                        }catch(e){
                                        do-some-browser2-specific-stuff();
                                        }

                                        Which, when "Break on all exceptions" is enabled, hurt debugging a lot.

                                        It would be nice to exclude some lines like this do-some-browser1-specific-stuff(); from breaking.

                                        • Do not try to select entire words across different DOM elements

                                          In response to this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/35257641/stop-edge-browser-trying-to-select-words-across-elements/35267896#35267896

                                          It would be nice to have the ability to control whether Edge tries to select entire words within a specific context. Perhaps using some (custom) CSS rule.
