Edge Rendering Issues on hover of a submit button RRS feed

  • Question

  • I wrote the following code and it runs fine in other browsers but Edge. For instance IE shows the URL of the button when you hover over it but it is on the right hand side and does not overlap the button. Chrome does not show the URL at all which means it does not overlap. But Edge causes the button to show its URL over the area were the button is located causing it at best to flicker back and forth and at worst to not allow you click the button. I noticed this rendering issue while writing code for a class.

    Here is a link to the site I built on my host I get the same behavior on local host just with a different URL in the way.

    Here is the code with my documentation of failed attempts removed to make it more simplified to look at.

    HTML Code

    	<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
      <link rel="stylesheet" href="../css/Groccerie.css" />

  • Seems like for your device and/or screen the URL is showing up on the bottom but it still shows. For my device and screen size a laptop with a ~13" screen the URL stays over the submit button even when I scroll. I can try loading it from a machine at school tomorrow.

    For a consistent user experience I would be nice to eliminate the URL on hover from showing at all and getting in the way. That is how it renders in other browsers. Is there a way to tell the Edge browser to do that?
