Title: Edge and Google Blogger conflict?
Post by: DR M on April 29, 2019, 08:18:39 AM
I'm having a problem with Edge. I saw that you talked positive about it in another topic, so I came to ruin the impressions.  :)

I'm trying to create a blog, in Blogger. When I use Pale Moon, I can edit my blog posts and the visible gadgets, and I also can write a comment, using my Google account as a profile. As you can see in attachments (1, 2, 4), all the tools for editing are there, and my Google profile is available to leave a comment.

When I use Edge, these editing tools are not visible. I see the blog as anyone, not sign in, could see it and not as an author. Even my Google profile is not visible in comments, so I can't leave a comment (attachment 3). Although, I can see my posts and everything else in blogger.com.

uBlock Origin is disabled.

Another remarkable thing about Edge, is that in blogger dashboard is appeared as Chrome. That's why I used the word conflict.

Any ideas?

Strange.  I don't have edit tools on my blog with either Pale Moon or Microsoft Edge.  It can only be edited/changed from within Blogger.

I also have/see these tools in Safari (ipod).

I found the solution!

The reason why in Edge the quick editing tools were disappeared is the setting about cookies. You have to use the option: Don't block cookies, and I had selected Block only third-party cookies (see attachment BLOG6). As soon I changed that setting and restarted Edge, the quick editing tools appeared in this browser too. I'm not very happy with this option, but I find quick editing very useful so...

In Pale Moon, which is my main browser, I have selected the cookies-option: Accept third-party cookies only from visited. And I have no problem.

Corrine, have you checked this:

Go to Blogger dashboard > Layout > Blog posts > Edit > Check the option about quick editing tools (see attachment BLOG5).

Nope.  I don't have that option but I believe it is related to this:  Cookies notification in European Union countries - Blogger Help (https://support.google.com/blogger/answer/6253244?hl=en).

Searching for "Quick Editing Tools" on Blogger, I discovered that some Blogger themes leave these tools out.  So, that must be the case with my custom theme.

This is strange. There are some sites providing codes to add in Blogger HTML, for showing the quick editing tools, but this is not something I used, so I can't suggest it.

I've always edited from Blogger anyway so, for me, it isn't an issue.  Way back when, I spent a lot of time converting my blog to a there-column layout.  Since I don't blog all that much these days, I'll just leave well enough alone.  The main thing is that you solved your problem.
