    Edge - Top Sites list randomly empty


    Just curious if this is unique to me or if others see this, and/or if it is a known bug.

    I oftentimes will use the top sites list to click on a webpage, I click on a new tab and that list is populated with the 8 most used sites I go to. Oftentimes, I will click on a new tab and suddenly the list is totally blank. I can close Edge out, reopen it, and it is populated once again.

    Does not appear to be any rhyme or reason to it, seems to be totally random when it happens. And when it does, only way to get them back is to close Edge out and reopen it.

    :)

    Top Sites Disappeared on Edge

    When I first started using Edge, which I love, I really liked how the top sites I visit show up. Suddenly, a couple of days ago, the boxes are now empty for top sites. How do I get this feature back?

  3. Top Sites Edge.

    On my Favourites Bar, I have sites (like a family tree site) that I have to log into, and when I click a site, It opens and I`m already logged in.

    BEFORE updating to Anniversary Update, when Top Sites appeared on Edge and I clicked them I was (like clicking the Favourites Bar) already logged in. This saves a lot of time.

    Now, since the Anniversary Update when I click Top Sites, I have to log into everything. It is faster for me to just go back to the Favourites
    Bar.

    Even copying the URL of a logged in site, and then adding it as a new Top Sites doesn`t work. It still requires a log in.

    Does anyone know how to fix this, as security isn`t a problem with most of my sites. With critical ones like Banks it is absolutely necessary to log in, and even My Favourites Bar still requires a log in for critical websites like these.

    Happens to me too. Oddly it then comes back with the old Top Sites I had before - I don't have to re-populate them.

    I have the same issue with History - it disappears (says there will be something here when you have visited a website) and then it all comes back again when you reopen Edge (including the In-Private stuff, careful)...

    I guess it can't read it's config file sometimes for some reason.

    You are not alone anyway.

    Ok thanks for the feedback gang, I will assume it is a bug that at some point may get addressed. Not a real big deal, just a minor annoyance at times...

    Hope so. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful than a "me-too".
     
  8. Edge - Top Sites list randomly empty

    You're not the only one, it's happened to me a few times as well but something I've noticed today, not sure if it's always been there and I didn't notice, each icon in the list has a pin icon or a + icon, I've hit the pin mark for the sites I want to keep so will have to wait and see if that makes a difference.

    Same here.
    Good thing I use it just for test purpose. Not my main browser.
