as the title suggests, and my website is using the pseudo class to show which page you are on. it works fine within the latest version of safari it just doesn't seem to be in the latest webkit nightly
Could you please clarify what exactly doesn't work? I don't see any difference in look or behavior (other than different text antialiasing in top left box).

a visited link
i've amended the title i put the wrong pseudo class, i meant the visited one, sorry for the confusion.
i've uploaded a picture to show, on each page of my website it has a unique body id and for that body id each page has a visited state for the navigation to show the user which page they are on. it doesn't show up webkit, maybe it's my coding but it works fine in safari
sorry again for the confusion hope this clears it up

reduced test case (only works from a local file)
We no longer honor background images on visited links. Firefox is also removing support for this capability. Honoring background images on visited links allows for timing attacks that let your set of visited sites be snooped.
http://dbaron.org/mozilla/visited-privacy has the details of the new algorithm used by both Firefox nightlies and WebKit nightlies.
Specifically see the Risks section in that document.
The fact that normal colors don't work is a bug though. Let me look into it.
thanks for clearing this up, so i guess i'm better off removing the visited class. will there be something safer/similar implemented it's just on the side of usability for the user, not a huge issue, but it's a little helper?
read the article you suggested, so ignore my question.

Address Dan's comments from IRC and make more Chromium build fixes

I'm curious whether the site should work anyway - it uses the same image for every state, but with offset and clipping.
Pretty sure you're still vulnerable to timing attacks if you are willing to render different portions of the same image. If the image can be repositioned, you can affect the rendering time by keeping it from painting using clips.

Fix landed in r59956.
