In the Act V19.2 for Web, in MS Edge, the customize column dialog box will not pop up while in the Groups Detail View. It does work in IE11. I may need to use both web browsers at the same time to get what I need. I have tried Chrome or Firefox yet since historically these did not work well with Act. Any idea on what settings I need to change?

MS Edge is a cut down browser that makes it faster than other browsers but lacks the ability to fully interact with programs like ACT.
Use Chrome or IE for best results.

so I downloaded v20, but it doesn't support Edge either. I sure am glad Swiftpage is telling Microsoft that their Edge browser sucks, and that everyone is staying with IE11, a browser MS is moving away from.

Swiftpage have also put a lot of effort in making Chrome an alternative to IE as well so could try that option. Not sure if Swiftpage will invest in the work needed to get it compatible with Edge or even if is a viable option so IE and Chrome are the way to go.

OK, so after the great debate about how Swiftpage is move ACT away from IE11 and everyone knows that EDGE sucks, so lets go with Chrome... Chrome still does not support Active X controls. So half of the usefulness of ACT is not usable.
NONE of the Outlook Integration menus under TOOLS is available in Chrome/Firefox. I'm also unable to edit templates in the WRITE pull-down menu in Firefox, all the options are greyed out except for "E-Mail Message".
I think SP needs to rethink their IE11 response in above reply.

As Jon states MS are offering Edge as the IE replacement but it just not have the functionality for developers to use in more complex designs and yes Chrome also has drawbacks. It seems MS have quietly acknowledging this as IE is still available and being patched when MS sends out updates.
