The difference with Firefox is that our result is a NodeList, not an HTMLImageElement. Re-titling the bug accordingly.

The attached test case tests this in a very roundabout way, so we need to test what IE actually does - even if the test passes there, it might be for another reason.

I'm not sure why we have this behavior, it seems like it was intentional at some point.
