Elliot, not sure whether you mean it's a bug in Webkit or Firefox
Regardless, it persists even to today's newly released Firefox v.29.

The correct behaviour should be that an event is picked up, given the
pseudo elements are nested within the parent element.

All the major browsers do this already. It would assist developers if
Firefox could follow suit here.
