Keepass auto-typeproblems withEdge browser

I use Keepass as my password manager. I am also in the Windows insiders "slow" program. Edge has never worked properly with Keepass auto-type. The problem seems to be that when you have multiple tabs open in Edge, Keepass autotype works only with the 1st tab. I think the reason it fails on the other tabs is that Edge adds the words "and x more pages" to the tab title when there is more than 1 tab. Keepass is looking for the tab title as it shows when there is only one tab open. I'm not sure why Edge adds the additional words but I think it the reason that Keepass doesn't work with Edge. I might add that it works with all other browsers regardless of the number of tabs open. Of course, they don't add the extra words. Is there a reason Edge adds the extra words? Is there another solution to this problem? As of now, I have a work around. When I want to use auto-type I open a new window. However, this is a bogus workaround that clearly shouldn't be needed
