Steps to reproduce

When I attempt to load an image into an offscreen image element, it will fail to load if the image has already been cached by the browser.

I can repro this in the edge browser (Microsoft Edge 38.14393.0.0; Microsoft EdgeHTML 14.14393) in windows 10 (enterprise evaluation version 1607). I have not been able to repro in IE11.

I attempt to load the image like so:

var image = new Image();
image.crossOrigin = 'anonymous';
image.onload = function() {
  console.log('image load succeeded');
image.onerror = function() {
  console.log('image load failed!');
image.src = '...';

I’m using the crossOrigin attribute, since I hope to eventually use the image on a canvas element.

If the image has already been loaded and cached by the page, it will trigger the onerror handler. If the image has not been loaded and cached, it will trigger onload.
