    Copy problem with Edge but not Firefox


    On some sites, if I highlight or try to highlight something to either use Cortana to find or just copy, Edge will hang up and eventually I will get a message that "XX" site is not responding and ask me if I want to recover the page.

    I can go to the same site with Firefox and highlight and copy (ask Cortana doesn't work on FF) and there are no problems.

    :)

  2. Edge not reading the Favorites folder after Feb 9 2016 update

    Okay, but how do I put my old favorites into that database file? Copy-pasting doesn't seem to be an option, and the export tool only gives me the two folders that are currently in the Edge favorites list.

    As a side note, I found that selecting "import from Edge" in Firefox adds my old favorites into it. After using this import to go from Edge -> Firefox -> Chrome -> Edge (since Chrome can't import from Edge but vice versa works, Chrome can import from Firefox,
    and Edge can't import from Firefox but vice versa works), Edge got a few of the files back, but most weren't copied in the import process (and some folders were copied, but they were copied empty).

    I could theoretically just switch to using Chrome/Firefox now with the imported favorites and be done with it, but I'd still like to fix this issue, if possible.

  3. Problem: Booting my pc up my pc automatically opened up an MSN webpage?

    I had this problem with Edge, IE and Firefox. I noticed a "redirect" command in edge but couldn't copy it. I complained on Firefox and then on Microsoft websites and I noticed yesterday, 5/6/17, the Microsoft virus went away without my having to do anything.

    I guess Microsoft removed their virus.
