How do I scale an SVG background-image without honoring aspect ratio in Firefox?

I've got a CSS background-image set on an element of fluid height and width. It's an SVG, and the intended behavior is for it to stretch in whatever directions necessary to cover the entirety of the element's area. In Chrome, Safari, and even bad ol' Internet Explorer 9, the scaling works how I want:

But within Firefox (both desktop and mobile), the output is more like this:

After some digging around, it appears Firefox tends to be stricter about SVG rendering than other browsers, in that it closely adheres to the most recent version of the spec. (Opera Mini also fails rendering this background image (when enabled) in that it doesn't scale the image down, and given the Presto engine's tradition of tackling specs with the earnestness of a summer thunderstorm, it may expect the same updated approach that Firefox does.)

You can see the live page I'm working on at http://ti.gt/. I've also provided the code I'm working with below:

The Data URI doesn't appear to be the sticking point, but here's the decoded SVG file:

I've tried a variety of tactics to get Firefox to accept my demands, but so far not a one has been successful. I've looked over this document that's about exactly this topic, but I'm unable to extract any advice from it.

I needed to set the background-size. This snippet did the trick:

background-size: 100% 100%;

Part of the "stricter rendering model" was deferring sizing information to the page, rather than intrinsically within the SVG.

I thought I was defining this inside the background shorthand, but apparently instead I was specifying the background-position. I feel pretty silly about that, but it does appear to be the gnarliest and most-overgrown shorthand in CSS.
