I all, i am making a web site which has a menu, and when you click on a menu item, a thumbnail list should appear. I am trying to preload all the images that should appear and then display them. It works fine on every browser except IE (i have version 8). I have put together the code for anyone willing to take a look here: http://jsfiddle.net/THpgM/2/

I think the problem lies in this piece of code (which is near the bottom of the first function in the fiddle)

img.onload = (function(i){ 
  // code here is executed
  return function(){
    // code here is not
    document.getElementById("li" + i).style.height = this.height + "px";
    document.getElementById("li" + i).setAttribute("data-height", this.height);

    if(totalLoaded == totalThumbs){
      // do some stuff
I have spent like 2 days trying to figure this out. If someone could please help me with this it would be greatly appreciated.
