Steps to reproduce

Tests at http://w3c-test.org/html/semantics/forms/the-form-element/form-action-reflection.html and http://w3c-test.org/html/semantics/forms/the-form-element/form-action-reflection-with-base-url.html

Spec at https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/forms.html#dom-fs-action

Per the separate tests at http://w3c-test.org/html/semantics/forms/the-form-element/form-action-submission.html and http://w3c-test.org/html/semantics/forms/the-form-element/form-action-submission-with-base-url.html, Edge uses the spec’s algorithm for determining the actual URL to which the form submits. However, it does not return the correct URL for form.action.

No browser seems to follow the spec here, but they violate it in different ways, so this is probably safe to change.
