Edge browser bug

    Can you try reproducing this?

    1. Download a small file. (Skip this step if you have some downloads already in your history.)
    2. Start downloading a large file
    3. View downloads
    4. While the large file is downloading, click "Clear all" on download history list
    5. Note if the active download is listed

    Although the download still continues even though it's not listed in the download list, you can really screw yourself if you happen to pause the download from the little dialog that shows at the bottom of the browser window. If you pause it, the little dialog goes away. Since it's not listed in the "View downloads" slide-out pane, there's no way to restart the download.

    Didn't try, but, sounds like it will happen like you said. Comes to surprise it actually still downloading unless you pause it. I would thought it would cancel the download and clear then clear the list.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    Where do we submit bugs with W10, btw -- the Feedback app, or someplace else?

    @brian.shapiro: The Feedback app. Please share as much detail as possible. There's an Edge category, too.

    The bug I'm thinking of is actually with the Start menu. If you use it from two monitors with different font/sizing settings because of resolution, it messes up the Start menu, requiring you to readjust it, and even can cause it to crash.

    Good to know I can use the Feedback app.

    @brian.shapiro: The Feedback app also has a Reproduce button you can click on to have a bunch of tracing done while you reproduce the problem. You can attach pictures and files, too.

    When it comes to the Feedback app, just remember: There's a category for that.

    Did not realize the Feedback button is this extensive. Next Gen.

    I checked the app, and this bug has already been reported. Unfortunately, it's been reported 10 separate times, so the upvotes are getting spread out.

    Edge is not ready for prime time.  It has problems working on Amazon where search results do not come back.  I mean what are they testing if not hitting the major websites for operability?  I have had it just close down (it crashes) for no reason.  

    What is going on this world when we use to be able to write entire Operating systems in a couple years from scratch and now we can't do an application in 2 years.  It seems the world is in a major slowdown.   Empire state building goes up in 13 months and we cannot put up a 9/11 replacement building in 13 years and counting. That is just one example but I am sure everyone is seeing the same slowdown.

    @TexasToast: Well, I'm sure there's been a lot of politics involved in the 9/11 replacement building.

    As far as software, being able to quickly deliver a patch to all users and the popularity of agile workflows are to blame. The need to completely and thoroughly test software is going away. As a business, I'd rather have my base product working for 95% of my customers than delay it a year to get a polished product working for 99% of my customers. Especially in a web browser. Who knows what the hot feature in 4 weeks is going to be, let alone a year from now.

    I imagine we'll see Edge being updated at least as often as Chrome gets updated.

    @TexasToast:  Today's web browsers are orders of magnitude more complex than 80s operating systems.

    @bondsbw:I would use the word bloated rather than complex.

    @TexasToast:  If by "bloated" you mean "provides the functionality expected of modern web browsers", then you are correct.

    This delivery method allows business to deliver "Software as a service", that's the catch in that each new release contains a lot of bugs that need to be fixed in the next version so business people can continue to make money using subscriptions.

    It brings the notion of consumerism to software in ways that did not exist before.

    Well, that goes hand-in-hand with the consumerism (and elitism) that Apple brought to hardware.
