Robert, not sure what your background images look like, but
possibly a technique such as the "sliding doors" one
<http://www.alistapart.com/articles/slidingdoors/> could be
used to accommodate for this ?
The unfortunate (?) reality is that you, the developer, can't
(and shouldn't, in terms of accessibility, or even simple user
preferences) have absolute control over a certain design/layout,
as you would in, say, print design. This is a good thing, and
should be seen as a creative challenge, rather than a stumbling
block (sorry, turning into a preacher here).

Btw: it's not just Mozilla. As Tantek pointed out, IE5/Mac started
it, and Mozilla Firefox and Opera support resizing of pixel sizes
(although Opera scales up *everything*, including images).
