Duplicate of #4295. Use individual properties not shorthand ones.

This is not a duplicate of #4295. That ticket deals with shorthand properties, but background-position is not a shorthand property according to the W3C. Some browsers treat it that way, providing the non-standard background-position-x and background-position-y; however, those are not a workable substitute, as Firefox does not support them. This is precisely the kind of inconsistency that jQuery ought to compensate for.

Agree with @buchanans. Not sure why this issue still exists.

$(el).css('backgroundPosition') fails in <= IE8, instead returning undefined.

$(el).css('background-position-x') works in <= IE8, but then fails in other browsers.
