  • Fixed a crash when navigating in an IE mode tab.
  • Fixed a crash when using Tab Groups.
  • Fixed a crash when interacting with info bars.

  • Fixed an issue on Mac where checking for updates in Settings sometimes crashes Settings.
  • Fixed an issue where certain applications installed on the device cause all tabs to crash as soon as they're opened.
  • Fixed a hang when opening Internet Explorer.
  • Fixed a hang when closing the browser.

Mobile:

  • Fixed a crash on startup.
  • Fixed a crash when the device orientation changes.
  • Fixed a crash when signing into the browser.
  • Fixed a crash on older versions of iOS.

Microsoft didn't share any images of the Windows 11-style visual update, but we'll include them as soon as the build rolls out to one of our devices.

The update also includes a long list of fixes and changed behaviors, which you can read in a Tech Community post (opens in new tab) from Microsoft.
