Steps to reproduce

  1. Make a simple HTML document with the following:
<form action="/some/path" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post" novalidate="novalidate" target="_blank">
    <button id="the-submit-button" type="submit">Submit</button>
  1. Inspect the button element:
var button = document.getElementById('the-submit-button');
console.log(button.formAction); // ""
console.log(button.formEnctype); // "application/x-www-url-formencoded"
console.log(button.formMethod); // "GET"
console.log(button.formNoValidate); // false
console.log(button.formTarget); // ""

The ‘other browsers’ all behave correctly, i.e., the values of those properties default to the values of the corresponding properties of their owner form. IE11 and Edge both exhibit this unwanted behavior.
