    Strange, it's not there on my version... oh well.
    It seems to be picking up the browsers you have installed. In my case I just have FireFox.

    So, one of the annoying things about Edge is that the Favorites are all stored in a database, and there is no UI feature to edit them (such as changing the url after the Favorite has been created).

    It only allows us to rename them.
    Have you given any feedback?

    I got it all sorted out., What I just did was I installed Chrome and then I imported my bookmarks/favorites from FF to Chrome. Closed Edge and when I re-opened it here's what I found:

    It seems that you need to have some bookmarks/favorites in Chrome to start with before Edge will pick it up.

    There are already tons of other feedback items over it. Vote those up, rather than creating yet another.
