Why doesn't current version of Firefox handle a background image on the :visited pseudo class?

I teach a fundamental web design class using HTML and CSS. We were playing with links and I set up an example where a check mark would be displayed as a background image for the :visited pseudo class using embedded CSS. It worked on an older version of Firefox. It does not work on newer versions. It does work current versions of IE and Opera.

I've included the code I used.

That is a security measure.
You can only use very limited styles for :visited and background image is not included.

See:


a:visited {padding-left: 20px;
background-image:url(purplecheck.gif);
background-repeat:no-repeat;
text-decoration:none;}
