Gecko *always* required getElementById in standards mode, until FF15.
That's why most pages worked (and still do) without element IDs in the
global scope. But no-one else was willing to follow suit, so we dropped it.

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
that you may be children of your Father in heaven. ... If you love those
who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors
doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more
than others?" [Matthew 5:43-47]
