    I wonder if anyone has experienced the same problem. Whenever I try to import IE favorites in edge, the program crashes. Looking at the favorites that were imported successfully, I realized that edge crashed the moment it encountered a link that contained a ftp:// prefix instead of the usual http or https.

    This has been happening with every build of Windows 10 since the feature of importing IE favorites has been implemented. If I temporarily remove all the links using the ftp protocol from my favorites and launch importing again, the operation completes successfully.

    If Edge wasn't already included in Windows, I suspect that it wouldn't be used by anyone. I don't understand why people, except those forced by their job, would use it. It's obviously not even out of beta. It has no add-ons or extensions to speak of. It's buggy and, to me, useless. The only reason I can see, is that people see the edge icon on the taskbar, click it, and that's their browser. That's just my opinion.

    For those who're interested (which by the looks of it seems to be noone), the edge favorites import of ftp links problem seems to be partially fixed in the latest Windows 10 build (14361).

    Edge no longer crashes when it encounters a bookmark containing an ftp link. However, the link in question is not imported and simply skiped. All other favorites are imported correctly.
