Symptoms

The Microsoft Edge browser does not support, and cannot render WebP format images. The AAM image optimization framework improperly classifies the Edge browser as being capable of supporting WebP and delivers WebP-transcoded images to such clients.

Impact

Some images will fail to render on the Edge browser.

Conditions

The AAM system's image optimization as well as the "optimize for client" setting must both be enabled, and the associated acceleration policy and application associated with one or more virtual servers.

Workaround

Disable the "optimize for client" attribute in the applicable policies' acceleration assembly settings.

Fix Information

Transcoded WebP images are no longer served to the Edge browser. By default, transcoded JPEG-XR is also no longer served to the Edge browser, but the db variable ccdb.allow.edge.jpegxr may be used to override this.
