When I open www.washingtonpost.com in Edge the front page initially flashes with the correct content but then immediately just lists topics only. I have cleared WAPO cookies, etc, restarted the computer to no avail. When I use Chrome, there is no problem. I have not found this problem with other websites on Edge at this point. This problem started a few days ago as it was working fine before then. See the image attached for what is left after the initial link to WAPO. Any thoughts or ideas about what is happening or how to cure this?

Thanks, Ken

I do not use a bookmark. And for me when I click on the link I get the problem noted. So it is obviously a problem related to something specific to my computer.

Have you tried another browser (like Firefox) to see if problem is specific to Edge?

What extensions do you have on Edge? Any ad-blockers for example?

I just tried without any extensions. The 'good news' is that I now can see ads on that page...but still nothing else. LOL
