Microsoft Edge crashes - RPM Version - crashes when signing into sync account using enterprise login

Edge RPM Version crashes on Fedora when signing into sync account to enterprise login (which has 2FA enabled). I,am using edge for office use case. I use chrome, brave and firefox for other use cases. They have no issues its just edge when signed in to enterprise login. Flatpak version does not have this issue. I,am using edge on flatpak as a solution, however flatpak is not official. I would like to use the official package.

AFAIK, and after checking with dnf it seems correct, edge is not part of the fedora ecosystem. You must have installed the rpm from some 3rd party site, it is after all a microsoft browser. As such there is no “official package” of edge for fedora.

Since the rpm seems to be 3rd party, and flatpaks are 3rd party you will have to pick what works for you. You did not even offer the site used to download & install the rpm.

Hi Jeff V,

Thanks for the reply, I added edge from microsoft official repo at Index of /yumrepos/edge/

I hope you are aware that microsoft is only grudgingly supporting linux in any form since they cannot force it out of existence.
