i just tested it with ejbca 4.0.16 and can confirm that it does not work.
Edge is recognized as "Firefox" with the following notice on the enrollment

"The CryptoAPI component is not installed.
NetID not installed.

If you don't have NetID installed or don't want to use a smart card you may
try another PKCS#11 module. Please choose a key length, then click OK to
fetch your certificate."

When click OK to enroll a white page follows and thats the end

I don't happen to have a W10 computer yet...

Anyway, I would be happy if somebody could confirm (or deny) that
certificate enrollment works in the Edge browser.  Microsoft have removed
ActiveX from Edge so it shouldn't work anymore.  Their enterprise CA is
unaffected since it uses another protocol which doesn't depend on browsers.
