Yesterday, the Operating System giant, Microsoft rolled out Microsoft Edge Dev version 102.0.1220.1. The newest release of this chromium-based browser brings several new enhancements, features, and fixes.
With that being said, let’s see what’s new in Dev 102.0.1220.1:
- Added a prompt to pin PWAs after being installed from the Microsoft Store.
- Redesigned the Apps management page.
- Added the ability to import passwords on mobile.
- Added a management policy to control if the Outlook Hub Menu is Enabled. Note that updates to documentation and administrative templates may not have occurred yet.
- Fixed a crash when using 2-factor authentication to sign into the browser.
- Fixed a crash on Android.
- Fixed a crash on Android when using the search widget.
- Fixed an issue where the tab bar sometimes disappears.
- Fixed an issue where the Setting to use a custom Secure DNS provider doesn’t work.
- Fixed an issue where the Find bar shows 0 matches even though related matches are shown on the page.
- Fixed an issue where the window control buttons are sometimes invisible when certain themes are applied.
- Fixed an issue where background tabs are sometimes invisible when certain themes are applied.
- Fixed an issue on mobile where signing into the browser fails.
- Fixed an issue in WebView2 apps where URL fragments are sometimes inadvertently removed during a navigation redirection.
- Disabled Kids Mode in Application Guard windows.
- 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 The most common cause of this error is outdated security or antivirus software from vendors like Symantec, and in those cases, updating that software will fix it.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 This failure is due to the main Kaspersky software being out of date and is thus fixed by making sure the latest version is installed.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 “wobbling” behavior when scrolling using trackpad gestures or touchscreens, where scrolling in one dimension also causes the page to scroll back and forth in the other subtly. 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. If this behavior is undesirable, you can temporarily turn it off by disabling the edge://flags/#edge-experimental-scrolling flag.
Meanwhile, you can manually look for updates by navigating to Help > About Microsoft Edge. Here the browser will check for any available updates and install them on the next browser launch.
Alternatively, you can download the latest version of Microsoft Edge from Insiders.
