It seems that CVE-2022-3723 is not (yet) fixed in Edge.
But according to another site it is fixed... so great (y)

Microsoft has updated the Edge browser in the stable channel to version 107.0.1418.26 as of October 29, 2022.

More than a year later, still can't figure out why search suggestions on this site doesn't work in Edge but works in every other browsers I've tried so far.
Send them a feedback if you can. I did three times in the past with no success. But if more people from different locations report it to them, they may notice it.

Deleting
Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft
was the solution once again, no thanks to M$.
Remove Managed by your organization from Microsoft Edge
I think I have that issue too, or something very much like it, and I have done some registry editing in recent past, and will look into this again. "It" rears its head at unexpected times but not for a couple of weeks. Thanks for the link.

Version 107.0.1418.52: November 17, 2022

Release Notes pending.
I just updated Edge and got a MS popup that forced me to Allow Microsoft to use your browsing activity including history, favorites, usage and other browsing data to personalize Microsoft Edge and Microsoft services like ads, search, shopping and news.
The only option was to confirm, Edge was otherwise "locked" -- I had this "feature" off, so after confirm, the popup closed and I went back to Settings, did this "feature" was turned on, and I turned it off again. How rude! :mad:

It appears to happen after some, but not all, updates, maybe to a new major version #.

The other bug I've encountered recently is Edge asking me repeatedly on startup if I want to save English as my language, and continues to repeat this behavior even though I select "Save".

I created some policies to make Edge not change anything without my consent, but when I do that, I can't change DNS settings which is a weird decision from MS IMO, so I was using Edge normally. But after the recent update, it made Bing the default search engine and features like follow creators, startup boost which was off for me got enabled automatically 😡 It happened before too 2/3 times in the last few months.
Never experienced something like this with Chrome & Firefox.
ESET like a week ago added a PUA detection for Microsoft's Bing Wallpaper app because it automatically changes the search engine to Bing in all browsers unless users untick those options during installation. Apparently, ESET told Microsoft before creating this signature. I think it's really humiliating for Microsoft that their app is now being detected as PUA. By the looks of it, Edge is also becoming a PUA. They are ruining a good browser. I also wanted to have a portable version of Edge for testing purpose, but can't do that because it automatically signs in to my account. So, same account on same PC on two browsers 🤦‍♂️

I saw that notification with an option to turn it off. But still, people hate Chrome because it asks user to change browser to Chrome when you use a Google services, I got that pop-up 1 time on Edge and after that Google just shut up and let me use what I want. For MS Edge, every few updates I got notification from Edge that I should change my search Engine to Bing.
