Background-attachment Browser Woes

Background-Attachment: Fixed does not work in Safari when using multiple background images in Safari.  The images will disappear when the browser is resized, or accessed in mobile device.  Background-Attachment: Fixed will render the images properly in Chrome, and Firefox, but even when coupled with Display: Block, and Overflow: Hidden to force images to appear, will not work properly in Safari.

If you add fixed inline with the Background or Background-Image css style, this will work properly in Safari.

#element {      
   background: url(img/image_file.jpg) 50% 0 no-repeat fixed; /* Works across major browsers */
