    I also use Kaspersky, maybe for this
    I have enabled Smart Screen in Edge to stop getting this message, waiting for MS to fix this problem

    Since you use another AV, just copy-paste ToggleDefender once into a powershell console and choose Yes when prompted, it will set policies to stop such nagging in Edge:

    Hi guys. Is it possible somehow restore old Quick Links icons? New icons are too small and looks terrible. Thanks

    I'm having an issue recently with Edge, it doesn't let me save .webm video files. Instead, it opens the link with my external video player (mpv). It used to work fine before.
    Clicking Save As, using the Ctrl+S shorcut or clicking the three dots and selecting Download, all the same. Instead of the traditional Save as file dialog, it opens a dialog saying if I want to open the file, which then launches my external video player, streaming the file from the link.

    It's just stable Edge (Version 86.0.622.38 (Official build) (64-bit), I never installed Canary.

    I was looking through edge://flags but I can't find anything that may be related

    Then you must have something wrong with the settings or something missing in the registry. There is no other option.

    As I said I haven't touched anything. It all started happening with the latest update from 2 or 3 days ago.

    I'll just wait for the next update and see what happens, thanks anyways.
