Description (last modified by Ross)


Edge 42.17134.1.0 / EdgeHTML 17.17134

How to reproduce

  1. Open a web page in Edge.
  2. Select [ABP Icon] > [Block element].
  3. Select any element.


4a. Force close Edge from the Task Manager. (Easiest)
4b. Accept a Windows update
4c. Restart the Windows machine.


  1. Open Edge again.

Observed behaviour

At Step 5 when Edge is reopened, the Block Element window also reopens on top of the main browser window and just contains the text "Loading". It also reopens it in a window with the full browser chrome, instead of just the address bar.

Expected behaviour

The Block Element window to not also reopen if the browser is reopened tabs/windows it had open when it was force closed. It does not occur in Chrome for example.

This one is a bit strange but could be confusing if it happens to a user. I noticed this after Windows update decided to randomly reboot my machine and Edge reopened with a tiny Block element window on top of the (also tiny) main window.
