Steps to reproduce


Repro Steps:


See fiddle here: http://jsfiddle.net/vr8Xv/3/

It also seems that after doing so, the action will also work fine after a refresh, possibly because the images are cached. To test, use private browsing or clear cache.

Expected Results:


Dynamically changing the background image of an element using JavaScript should redraw to visually reflect the change to the DOM.

Actual Results:
