eWallet launches IE instead of Edge for AutoPass

Why does eWallet® for Windows PC (desktop) launch Internet Explorer (IE) rather than Microsoft Edge for the eWallet AutoPass feature, even though Edge is configured as the default browser? 

This happens because Edge does not yet support extensions/plug-ins, a feature that is necessary for AutoPass be able to fill in user names and passwords on websites:

From a Microsoft page on this topic:

"At this time, extensions aren't available in Microsoft Edge, but we're working on it for a future update."

When Edge evolves to the point where it has more extensibility, we'll re-evaluate having AutoPass work with it. In the meantime, AutoPass continues to work with Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox on Windows PC (desktop).
