Microsoft Edge right-click menus and extensions including Glasp and Microsoft Editor competing for same screen real estate

When entering text in Edge or using an extension such as Glasp (from the Chrome store), the right-click menu for multiple items will often compete with each other for the same space. For instance, Editor, Glasp, and the Edge menu can all three pop up at the same time in the same place. Is there any way for the end user to mitigate that problem or is it something the developers need to work out?I am using Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 26120.670 (KB5037869). Edge Dev channel Version 126.0.2578.1 (Official build) dev (64-bit) & Version 125.0.2535.51 (Official build) stable app, beta channel (64-bit). The behavior happens regardless of Edge version.

    Hi @Clough, Joel,

    I viewed and checked the Edge menu and Editor or extension you mentioned. But these will indeed popup menus at the same position. This is the designed behavior of Edge layout. And there are no relevant settings or policies to change this default behavior. So, I suggest that you can press "Shift+Alt+I" to submit feedback.
