Microsoft Edge Extension, how to manipulate popup.html DOM

I'm new on Browser Extension dev.
I'm trying to do some easy stuff, but I don't really know why doens't work.
What is the problem? I can't manipulate DOM of my popup.html file.
Here an example:

<script src="js/jquery.js"></script>
<script src="js/main.js"></script>
<body id="content">
<p> Hello world </p>
<button id="go" />

And here my very simple main.js file:

$(document).ready(function() {

$('#go').click( function(){

$( "#content" ).empty();

After click, the content of my Body seems doesn't disappear, but if I put an alert, I can see that my code work (when the alert show). But after click() event (when I close the alert), the popup file it's restored and paragraph is still here.

So, what I'm doing wrong? Can I manipulate the DOM of my popup file? Or my JS code need fix?
I've made some tests, and I notice that any event, any data and any action die after click() event.
I've also try

location.href = "other_page.html";

the redirect work, but as I said after click I return in popup.html file.

Thanks, I'm here for more specification


I had the same problem.... I think Edge doesn't like jquery click() function.

Try with this:

document.getElementById("logout").addEventListener("click", function() { 
$( "#content" ).empty();

I've solved in this way :)
