Steps to reproduce

Rendering svg icons to webgl as textures breaks in IE 11. I’m currently using pixi.js to render to svg as textures to webgl, which does not work in Edge or IE 11. I was eventually able to get Edge working and I’ve distilled the issue down to just an IE 11 issue. You can easily taint a canvas element if you have a svg element embedded on a page, and you serialize the element into a string, which you then apply to an img src as a encoded data uri, then you draw that img to a 2d context with drawImage. You can view a clean example here:

I’ve documented this issue in great detail here:

This issue currently affects out mapping solution for all centers at Westfield Malls. You can view an example here:!/westfieldworldtradecenter

You should see a series of icons scattered throughout the map, but in IE 11 and Edge they are not visible because of the Texture rendering issue.
