Problem with Edge
« on: Tuesday 26 February 19 12:09 GMT (UK) »
Since the latest update over the weekend - one of those where the system switches itself on/off several times and you've enough time to pop to the shops and back while it's still chunterring away - I can no longer have two tabs of the same website open at the same time.  I can still have multiple tabs open, but not two of the same.

For instance, sometimes when working on Ancestry I wanted to keep one page on a record I'd found and then open another tab for Ancestry to check a different record.

Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed the same problem, and if the latter, have you found a way around it - without using a different browser, please?

Hope this makes sense.
Thanks

It may just be a problem with certain websites or facilities it certainly works ok (for me) on Rootschat

It seems I can open as many RootsChat tabs at the same times as I want, but only one Ancestry, BBC, Facebook, gmail.

This is all very frustrating  >:(

Maybe if I give it a few days, there will be another update and it will go back to normal (well, normal for me, anyway  ;D )
