Edge storage.sync.set brokenSee original GitHub issue
Error: Could not complete the operation due to error 8e5e05e2.
- Is completely undocumented
- Only appears when packaged as an appx
I thought this was only happening because something wasn’t provisioned for us on MSFT’s side, guess I was wrong.

@mymindstorm: Thanks. I mostly left a note here because your issue is one of the top hits for this error message.
The “Extension ID” is “EdgeExtension_” + the package family name; the prefix adds 14 characters which pushes your extension’s ID out to 66 characters, just over the limit. Unfortunately, there’s no workaround short of re-releasing the extension with a shorter name.
I’ve reached out to the documentation team to ask them to document this bug, and to the partner onboarding team to help them reject any proposed listing with an ID that exceeds the limit.
You’re correct in noting that the Chromium-based Edge will not suffer from this problem, but the old EdgeHTML-based version of Edge will be with us for quite some time.
Closing as edge is being replaced with chromium Edge.
