    initial v4  
    11When we added `noopener noreferrer` in #37941, the `noreferrer` bit was added specifically because at the time, Firefox didn't support `noopener`. Since it does now and has for a while, see [https://caniuse.com/#search=noopener here], I think we should remove it, as it does have nasty side effects: it breaks cross-site analytics.

    3 We should remove it everywhere, as links in the admin don't send a referrer anyway after [https://core.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/41741 41741] and as such there's no security risk to removing it.
