    Edge Not Giving Suggested Sites When Using 'Dont Block Cookies'


    Hi,

    I have had a problem for a while.

    when using edge on the homepage of google if I have Don't Block Cookies enabled in the edge settings, I'm typing in google without any suggested words/sites appearing.

    if I use 'Block All Cookies' it works!

    This ONLY happens on the homepage of google.
    That is to say, if I type in the search box within a google page that is not the homepage it works.

    Any ideas please or am I missing the point ?!

    I have these settings and Google gives suggested sites after the first 3-4 letters:

    It does work with those settings.
    Try it with accepting cookies.

    I have Edge at the default 'don't block cookies' and it gives search results for me.

    Above the cookies option there is a box marked 'show selections as I type'. Is that enabled ?

    ok thanks.
    its not the end of the world or anything but if I can save a bit of typing and/or get ideas then all the better.

    I suspect eventually it will correct itself via an update that will overwrite the error.

    cheers
