Steps to reproduce

I have set up an example to demonstrate the issue.
Go to the above website in edge and ie/chrome/firefox; you will see that the behavior in edge is not consistent. The storage event will fire in the other iframe but not the parent.

I have verified this in edge v20, v25 and v38.

Source code for the example is here:
