Microsoft rolls back buggy cumulative update to fix IE tabs getting stuck in Edge​

Microsoft has updated the official Windows Health Dashboard documentation with a notification about fixing a somewhat annoying bug in Windows 11 and 10. According to the company, KB5014019 introduced a bug causing IE tabs in Microsoft Edge to get stuck.
After installing KB5014019 and later updates, IE mode tabs in Microsoft Edge might stop responding when a site displays a modal dialog box. A modal dialog box is a form or dialog box which requires the user to respond before continuing or interacting with other portions of the webpage or app. Developer Note: Sites affected by this issue call window.focus.

Luckily, there is nothing the affected users should do to solve the problem. Microsoft applied its Known Issue Rollback mechanism to undo the buggy update with no need to install additional patches. The only thing IE Mode users can do is restart their computers to apply the rollback faster.

According to the documentation, the bug affected users with Windows 11 21H2, Windows 10 21H2, 21H1, 20H2, and Windows Server 2022.
