I don't have this bug with Edge tracking protection on strict, uBlock Origin, Bitdefender TrafficLight and Bitwarden.
Does the Lyrics Here extension interact with YouTube?
If that's not the one causing problems, check your uBlock filters, only enable the default ones and then try your other filters one by one till you got the offending one. Please let us know which one caused it.
Finally figured it out. It was Bitdefender TrafficLight extension.

Edge new tab page is still broken for me. I'm unable to customize from settings and there is no widget on the page. I can't get the daily image from M$. Anyone have or had this bug? I've had it for over a month, have searched the web for this bug and I've sent feedback. 🤔
I don't have that bug, just enabled the daily pic and it works fine.
Never used the image from MS before, I usually disable all stuff and like it clean without any background or feed.

Anyone have or had this bug?

Yes, I've had it. I fiddled with the Settings, reinstalled Edge, signed in w/Microsoft acct. and used Bing search for a VERY short time-- no immediate fix. I did NOT reset Edge as that would erase my customized settings. Annoyingly, one day the images re-appeared and I have no idea what triggered them to return. But here it is as it's running on 2009:

I really like the smaller "most visited" thumbnails but they disappeared one day also. Came back about a week or so later. :unsure:

It's just a guess but did you use windows spotlight for login screen?
No.
As Edge respect Windows privacy settings maybe that's the same for the random wallpaper in Edge.
My privacy settings have always been the same and Edge used to display the daily image. The daily image is one of the things M$ does a very good job on.
Does anyone know how to get a completely blank new tab using Edge settings or flags?
Nope. I don't know if there are plans to add this option. I no longer use Edge Developer. Maybe @Gandalf_The_Grey knows.

And here’s the list of top “quality areas” that we’re actively working on in response to your feedback:

Bring more extensions to the extensions store
Edge should use less memory than it does
Edge should use less CPU than it does
Scrolling should feel smoother for web pages
Scrolling should feel smoother for PDF files
Opening a new tab is too slow
Update does not always work reliably

I re-installed without success. Maybe I haven't used it enough since then?
Did you make any change to your cookie settings? Edge uses ntp.msn.com for the homepage. If your PC fails to to access this page or third party cookies related to this site is blocked you would only see the default Edge image that you're seeing at the moment. Also maybe check if any extension is blocking the cookie. Btw, the blocking all third party cookies of Edge don't have any impact on this as i myself use it that way.

Nope.
check if any extension is blocking the cookie.
Edge is the same with or without extensions = broken. The cookie ntp.msn.com doesn't even appear in the list of current cookies, which is strange. No first party cookies are blocked, etc. I've reset and re-installed but it's still the same.
