Steps to reproduce

Go to any site and open the console. Append a stylesheet to the page and look in the network tab and notice that 2 requests are performed for the stylesheet. The second request has a header "Referer: diagnostics://6/".

Here’s a simple snippet to test with the stylesheet on microsoft.com:
var e = document.createElement(‘link’); e.type = "text/css"; e.rel = "stylesheet"; e.href = "https://statics-marketingsites-wcus-ms-com.akamaized.net/west-european/mscomhp/_scrf/css/themes=default.device=uplevel_web_pc_webkit_chrome/c0-e70fd6/42-cbaa2d/4d-a102b4/16-1eae5f/8e-a6d059/1b-1bb29b/19-0509d4/71-29beed/49-75e0c1/1d-447cf4/a3-acdcb3/65-54dd88/12-4e5727/b1-bd68ca/3e-be3bda/54-232710/23-a36cb4/db-84dfd6?ver=2.0"; e.media = "all"; document.head.appendChild(e);
