I'm getting "waiting for response" on a site I used during last 2 days. Hadn't noticed it before.
There's also a minor change in the method of adding & naming new folders for my Favourites list. I added something today, not realising the alteration, then had to delete the new folder + contents before adding it again the correct way.

This is a problem that many users of Windows 10 Microsoft Edge browser have been experiencing since a recent Windows Update.
I've seen this problem on many family history web sites (Deceased Online, FreeBMD, GRO Online Index, PRONI Wills, etc.), and it's a real pain to keep having to use the F5 button and resubmit the page request dozens (if not hundreds) of times a day, when you're doing these searches.
If you were to complain and submit information to the Microsoft Answers (on their Microsoft Edge / All other issues / Windows 10) problem solving forum, it may spur them to put a bit more effort into this.

Once you've complained, I'd switch to Internet Explorer, Chrome or Firefox browsers, which don't have this problem.
