yesterday we reported that Google search results were redirected to other sites in the Edge. after the user confirmed that this happened due to a specific extension installed from the Edge add-on store, microsoft has further confirmed this fact and removed it from the online extension store.If you are using these extensions, Edge will also disable them at the next reboot and notify on the extension page
The problem is that when searching in the address bar with Google as the default search engine in the Edge, some users notice that the search results will be redirected to random through OKSearch.
