    Prevent the popup "Get the new Microsoft Edge"


    I have Microsoft Edge and I do use it. However my default browser is Firefox. Every day when I first open Firefox I get a popup saying "Get the new Microsoft Edge". A common suggested solution is to turn off 'get tips, tricks and suggestions as you use Windows'; however, this is set to off by my company (it being a work laptop). Does anyone have another suggestion?

    Hi, there is this, but I don't know if it helps with any notification.
    Disable Installation of Microsoft Edge by Windows Update in Windows 10

    Every day when I first open Firefox I get a popup saying "Get the new Microsoft Edge".
    - this sounds much more as if it's somehow related to Firefox.

    Have you tried launching Firefox in its Safe Mode to check whether it's related to an add-on?

    However note this, which suggests it isn't FF-related.

    I use FF and occasionally others and have never seen this popup- and don't have FF's popup blocker enabled.

    Also noted: new Edge ads in the Start Menu:
    Microsoft is showing ads for Edge in the Windows 10 Start menu if you search for rival browsers

    Thanks, I'll give that a go. I'll let you know how it went tomorrow, since this only seems to happen on the first run each day.

    I used to come across this type of thing frequently with computers that were issued to employees for work at home, but very lazily configured (if you can call it "configured") being just left to basic default settings on installation.

    Don't know what your relationship is with your IT department, but I used to suggest to users a bit a desk thumping to demand a level of configuration that was commensurate with expected use, if the company were expecting users to work at home.

    Some times it worked, sometime the IT department's attitude was ... "Meh!"

    (Although except for one poor sod who thumped and demanded a bit too hard, management agreed and lumbered her with the task of surveying all users to find what they wanted and putting together the setup criteria for the IT to follow).

    Sadly that doesn't seem to have fixed the issue. It definitely isn't related to Firefox as I also get it with Blisk; I'm a web programmer (ironically) so I have a few browsers installed.

    I might ask around and see if anyone else has had the issue.

    I also quoted this in my last post, which reflects what you see:

    Hi Everyone, I also get this pop-up at times, and I am running Edge Legacy, and Edge Chromium. I have used Nano AB, and it stops it for most of the time.
