    I seem to be able to add a shortcut to the Edge Favorites bar in some but not all instances. I added a few but now am trying to add eBay.com to absolutely no avail. I have the bar enabled but it just won't add this shortcut (nothing happens when I try). Like I said I get mixed results--sometimes it will add a shortcut (but never the one I want, eBay.com) but many times it just won't (whether eBay.com or otherwise). I've not been able to discern any pattern as when it will or won't work. Any help or insight will be appreciated. Running Windows 10 64-bit Pro, 14393.594 per the cumulative update today.

    The patch today was downloaded through Windows Insiders, do not know if it was meant for a non Insider OS. :confused:

    I was able to workaround it although the problem still exists. If you look in the favorites list the Favorites Bar is a folder. I was able to drag the eBay shortcut into the folder and now it's on the Favorites Bar. If you try to drag it directly to the Favorites Bar it won't work but, again, dragging it to the folder on the favorites list worked!
