Can you allow us to save printer settings so we don't have to configure them every time we print? I need to be more productive. Also, I use a shared printers and it costs me per pages(.15 vs. $1.00) when I overlook the settings3 votes
On Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 on PC (using 3G networks), on limited bandwidth (64kbit/s), many websites will refuse to load at all, as Edge Closes the Connection as it times out. This worked fine with Opera on Windows 10, Internet Explorer on Windows Phone 8.1 and also works fine on Android's major browsers (Chrome, FF).
I suggest, the timeout should be raised on low-speed connections to allow the user to access websites at all. Adding a picture quality Setting would really not hurt either. I think this problem must be affecting many people who are on low-speed Internet.1 vote

feedback hub link broken! Edge fails video from webcam, NO ERROR MESSG, works with legacy doc format but no user will be able to find it
needs to provide useful error messages / user feedback so that a normal user can get legacy pages to display
some legacy pages will NEVER be updated - eg. webcam
IT MUST BE BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE!!
there is no point having a link to "Feedback Hub" if it returns "page not found"1 vote
Edge supports the WebM VP9 encoding in MSE but only when accelerated, or if the end-user modifies about:flags. This means that sites using WebM VP9 but not H.264 cannot rely on playback in Edge, as most computers do not yet have hardware VP9.
For sites like Wikipedia that avoid H.264 due to licensing policy, this leads to less efficient workarounds or lack of media usage. We would love to deploy Edge-compatible VP9 if it were usable. An opt-in API for JS would be acceptable.1 vote
Add support for FLIF, the Free Lossless Image Format! Its benefits include progressive enhancement, transparency, and animations, all with significantly-fewer-bytes-received than other image formats! http://flif.info1 vote

Edge is useless without the checkbox to store HTTP-Auth credentials.
The workaround by adding sites with Internet Explorer to the trusted sites to then get this checkbox in Edge is ridicoulus.10 votes
Many of the enterprise browser extensions will need this event since they would depend on checking if their webpage is logged in already to show a dynamic page in the browser extensions panel and it will also help them to logout the user if cookie is removed.3 votes
Edge is nice but it won't become my default browser until drag-drop of website shortcuts is supported.4 votes
Support browser_url_overrides to allow customized net tab page, etc. (since users can't set their own choice of new tab page...)
Edge currently offers very few options for controlling the new tab experience, and the ones it does have are... not popular, judging by the Windows Insider feedback. Allowing extensions to override things like New Tab page would simultaneously address this concern and allow more Chrome extensions to be ported, making Edge a much nicer browser to use.3 votes
The "always record developer console messages" setting in Internet Options is respected by IE but not Edge. This is the #1 reason why I do not use Edge for developing and testing my app. I don't always remember to hit F12 when testing and having all of my logs get lost because of this is a huge detractor.27 votes
In order to feature detect resource hinting rels like prefetch, preload, and dns-prefetch, please implement relList and relList.supports as added to the dom spec in https://github.com/whatwg/dom/pull/123 . relList.supports is implemented in current Firefox and Chrome browsers. It is not yet implemented in Safari, but the resource hinting is also not implemented, so feature testing for that is a true negative. However, Edge supports resource hinting, but feature testing is a false negative, which means developers have to resort to User Agent inference or forgo resource hinting, resulting in a slower experience for users.4 votes

This small thing would go a long way for many developers on Edge!
Chrome, FireFox, and Opera support the chrome.identity API to handle oauth2 authentication flows. At least the methods launchWebAuthFlow and getRedirectURL are needed to support an oauth2 flow forarbitrary oauth providers siuch as Microsoft, Google, Facebook, LInkedin, etc.
This API is really missing from edge.9 votes
