  2. News story blank

    When I click on a news story, launcher navigates to the url and displays the story. At random points, the screen is blanked... The window looses all the text. Scrolling does not bring it back. I have to nav backwards to the news story list, re navigate to the story. Now I can read it until it decides to blank out again. Very frustrating.

  8. news feed

    FOX NEWS is appearing in my news feed. Obviously, I find this abhorrent. We need to be able to choose which websites MSL skims headlines from.

  12. News card articles

    Upon opening an article from the news card from the Microsoft launcher, the article is opened at a non-native screen resolution providing borders on either side and stretching vertically into the status bar. In addition, a semi-transparent black film is placed over the article.
    This does not happen when opening the Microsoft news app and then opening the same article.

  18. Russian news in my Ukrainian account. I have no interest of any news about Russia at all. I tried to change it but Ukraine us not listed

    the issue is about news content for Ukrainian accounts. Russian news are not appropriate at all because of the actual war. News about an enemy abuses the most part of Ukrainian people.

  20. Netherlands News market incorrect

    "Netherlands (Netherlands)" market shows Belgium news, and "Netherlands" market shows news from Netherlands. Would be better if markets are named "Netherlands (Netherlands)" and "Netherlands (Belgium)"
