Yep I'm confused by Blink's result here, even Firefox's (adding Daniel for insight). Edge wraps all of the columns, not just the first flex line (which seems to be what is stated in 9.3 of Main size determination). This is even more apparent if you change the testcase[1] from a column flex to a row flex (and change max-height to max-width), all three browsers render the same as Edge does in the initial column flow testcase.
