Guys, can you check this?
Visit this site: FotMob
Then in the search box above, type anything football related like team name/player name. Does it show search suggestion like this?

For me, it works in both Chrome and Firefox, but not in Edge. Even when tracking protection and enhanced security are disabled. It's been like this for many months. I thought the search function is broken on this site until I tried it on Firefox today and realized this happens on Edge only.

Can confirm. Works in Firefox. Does not work at all in MS Edge.

I also notice that Amazon Prime video x-ray does not always work in Edge, but always works in Chrome.
I also faced issue with Twitch stop playing video in a background tab even if I exclude twitch from sleeping tabs, which is not required btw since sleeping tabs by design doesn't interfere with running playback. e.g.: No issue with YouTube and Spotify.
History syncing issue, device info not getting deleted from Edge sync even after signing out, search suggestion breaking on that site I mentioned, your Amazon prime playback issue, slow and laggy settings search function and etc. issues I see on two of Edge's subreddit means Edge still has a way to go to become as stable as Chrome and even Firefox. These will get fixed quickly only if they concentrate more on fixing bugs rather than adding unnecessary features.

I couldn't agree more though I haven't faced some of the issues you and @Sammo experienced as I do more basic browsing, not a lot of video sites, etc.

Microsoft says it is investigating Edge Collections Sync issues; to be fixed in version 104​

A Microsoft representative has confirmed that the Redmond company is investigating the issues, and that the developers are working on a fix for it.
The statement reveals that Microsoft Edge for Android has a bug that makes the Collection Sync button unusable, i.e., it cannot be enabled or disabled even when the feature's flag is on. This bug is expected to be patched in the next update for the app

The issue also affects Microsoft Edge Prism Collections on Desktop and Mobile, this is the new feature (inspiration feed), that will add content inspired by your collections and the web.
A fix for this issue will be issued when Edge 104 is released. For reference, the update is scheduled to be rolled out in the week of August 4.

I even replied in the post 3 days ago, but worryingly it didn't receive a reply. But it seems "#2 - Desktop/mobile prism sync issues" will fix my history syncing issue.

Microsoft Edge's Enhanced Security Mode explained​


Microsoft Edge's Enhanced Security Mode is an optional security feature of Microsoft's web browser that is designed to improve protection against attacks on the Internet.
Called Super Super Secure Mode during its experimental testing phase, Enhanced Security Mode blocks access to the Just In Time compiler; this reduces the attack surface and makes it more difficult to use exploits according to Microsoft.

If I hover over the briefcase it shows the message: This setting is managed by your organization, even though under Group policy settings there is no evidence it's being managed there. I'm running Windows 11 Pro.

It is if you enabled a group policy or registry key for Edge.
I have turned on the registry key to enable appcontainer for the renderer process.
It can happen from programs like ooshutup10

Okay so you mean with these registry settings I have, it could grey the secure DNS options out?

I definitely have nothing configured for Edge under Group policy. Thanks!
