  • Newly acknowledge bug in Edge keeps you from accessing some local pages – if you’ve installed this month’s cumulative updates

    Posted on January 18th, 2019 at 05:36 Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Ah, the joys of installing the latest patches as soon as they’re available.

    Microsoft has officially acknowledged that this month’s cumulative updates for all versions of Win10 (starting with 1703) have hobbled Edge so it can’t access some fixed-address pages like 192.168.x.x. The pages that seem to be hit most commonly are router admin pages.

    The bug was identified shortly after Patch Tuesday, but it took this long to acknowledge it.

    Thx @gborn
