I have also asked this question in the Microsoft forums, but I thought I would also try my luck here.

I use MSN articles, and I used to receive comments in reply to my comments that I could read and go to. Now, I am getting what looks like URL links instead of proper comment replies, as shown below. Could someone please tell me why this is happening and how I put it right?

<a class="link" href="fast-rv3z4l{fast-rv3z4l-5735}fast-rv3z4l" target="_blank">fast-rv3z4l{fast-rv3z4l-5736}fast-rv3z4l</a> replied to <a class="cwt-link" href="fast-rv3z4l{fast-rv3z4l-5737}fast-rv3z4l" target="_blank">fast-rv3z4l{fast-rv3z4l-5738}fast-rv3z4l</a>.

<div class="clamp"> fast-rv3z4l{fast-rv3z4l-5739}fast-rv3z4l <a href="fast-rv3z4l{fast-rv3z4l-5740}fast-rv3z4l" target="_self"> <div>fast-rv3z4l{fast-rv3z4l-5741}fast-rv3z4l</div> </a> </div>

Thanks.

Hi Craig,

I am still waiting for an answer on this, and when I forwarded the complaint to Microsoft, they informed me they were still dealing with it. So, at the moment, it seems to be a waiting game.

The best thing to do (as I think many others with the same complaint have done) is to send feedback to Microsoft.

To do this, open a Microsoft Edge browser. Then, click on the ‘Settings and more’ icon (the 3 horizontal dots at the top right of the Microsoft Edge browser), ‘Help and feedback’ > ‘Send feedback,’ then fill in the details and send them off.

If anybody else here finds a fix in the meantime, can you please let us have it? Thank you.

thought I would add my 2 cents to this too as I am having the same problem. Chrome browser under win 10 - both up to date on updates and fixes. I get doing the 'feedback' submission but can find no way to directly submit for problem resolution, though luckily googling found this forum

only workaround I have found is click on the circle for your ID just left of and next to the box to submit a comment within the comments, then go and see if you have any replies within your article list, then click on that article and it 'should' take you to your comment and you can then see any replies there. FAR from a good workaround. Msoft/Msn have always done these comments badly and this is just about the last straw and I will find a new portal.

This problem has persisted for some time now and seems to be pretty widespread.

I have received an email from Microsoft that says;

Thanks for the update. So pretty much the usual MS blow off. And this is from the 'Edge' team does not sound good as it occurs on other browsers as well. This IS a msn.com commenting problem, not an Edge problem.

Hi Eric,

Good point! I may point that to Microsoft in another complaint so that they know the difference.
