Steps to reproduce

The Referrer Policy specification evolved since its implementation in Edge. As a consequence (and as shown on http://caniuse.com/#search=referrer), Edge lack support for the ‘origin-when-cross-origin’ and ‘unsafe-url’ tokens.
Per the spec: “Note: Authors are encouraged to avoid the legacy keywords never, default, and always. The keywords no-referrer, no-referrer-when-downgrade, and unsafe-url respectively are preferred.”
