Changing your example a bit shows that both browsers show the same
result when you use this document with the added value for vertical:

<!DOCTYPE html>
	<title>Background-Repeat Example 33%</title>
	<style type="text/css">
div {
	width: 400px;
	background-repeat: repeat-x;
	background-size: 50% 50%;
	height: 400px;
	background-image: radial-gradient(red, blue, red);
	border: black solid 1px;

Since the general behaviour is to use the given value for all possible
values if there is only one given, I feel that Chrome is right here.
Firefox keeps the 100% vertical and does not change the vertical value
probably because it is not given as the second value. So it keeps the
Would be nice for SeaMonkey to change that behaviour. For now it's best
to use both values.
