Users of the Canary version of Microsoft Edge Chromium have recently reported issues with the installation of add-ons.

The problem has since been successfully pinpointed to the built-in Antivirus software.

The virus check function has been found to block add-ons from being installed in the latest version of Canary.  Add-ons from the Chrome Store seem to be exempt from the problem, though.

Canary is updated every night, so minor problems are usually fixed very quickly.
