Steps to reproduce:

Insert the following code into the console:

el = document.createElement("input")
el.type = 'checkbox'
console.log("before: ", el.checked)
el.click()
console.log("after: ", el.checked)


Actual results:

Both console logs have the el.checked value of 'false'.


Expected results:

The second console log value should have been 'true'.

If I append this element to the DOM and then click it, it works fine.

The example code above works fine in Chrome and IE.
