    Can you check the ellipsis (the 3 dots...) at the upper right-hand corner of Edge > extensions > Installed extensions and see if you have the Norton Safe Web add-on installed and toggled to on. Like in my case, I don't have any such add-ons from Norton in the following screenshot.

    That's why I am waiting to get it via Windows Updates. Maybe, by the the time MS decides to roll it out on my production machine right now on 1909, they will hopefully have time to put some final touches on some kinks.
    In the post above # 133 in this same thread, I said I was going to wait and get the new chromium-based Edge (stable release) via Windows Updates. I Just realized that won't be possible. AND THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AND MIGHT BE BENEFICIAL TO OTHER MEMBERS IN THE FORUM:

    If one is running the preview builds of Edge (Canary, Beta or Dev), the upgrade cannot be done via Windows Updates. For it to be done, one has to be on the previous Legacy UWP version of Microsoft Edge, otherwise it behooves one to download the online installer and execute it in order to upgrade from the preview builds.

    That's why I decided today to do just that, since I was on the Chromium-based Dev version. I hope that my explanation was clear and understandable to everyone.

    Cheers!

    I don't think that's true. Why do you think it is?

    From paragraph 3. in IMPORTANT NOTES at the bottom of the referenced article below:
    If you are using a Preview build (beta, canary, developer) of new Microsoft Edge browser, it'll NOT be upgraded to the Stable release version. You can use the preview builds side-by-side with Stable version.

    I think that just means our preview versions will not be touched, which was noted in the Microsoft announcement:

    ... Microsoft Edge preview channels (such as Dev or Canary) will continue to work without interruption.

    I have the new Edge installed on 3 of my Win 10 Pro machines. i have no issue with any of them, I also run Malwarebytes Pro, and Norton running. I also have the Malwarebytes extension running with out issues, for that reason alone I will continue using Edge and not Chrome.
    All my regular extensions are installed and working I did have to install each on each computer as extensions sync will be available latter? I'm pretty impressed so far. The previous versions of Edge did not impress me at all, and I used Chrome and IE 11. So while IE 11 and Chrome are still installed I believe I will keep the New Edge as default for awhile and see how it goes.

    The wording of what MS says can sometimes get very technical and confusing at best. What you said is true and what I said is also true. We will have to wait and see what happens down the road, meaning whether or not one can get the new stable version via Windows Updates if one was only running one of the preview builds. That is the main subject at hand right now.

    I know that the preview builds and the newly released stable version can run side-by-side, but why one would want to do that is beyond me. I had to uninstall the chromium-based Edge Dev after installing the stable version newly released.

    I just installed stable and forgot about it because my default browser is Edge Dev.

    I use Official, Beta, Development and Canary builds side by side. All 4 used every day. Plus I use Edge on Android too.

    I uninstalled Chrome from Android last week because of its bugs in Android 10. Won't switch to it ever!
