+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1043310 +++

The ignoreBlurWhileSearching attribute is not really hooked up to anything. It used to exist in xpfe autocomplete though I'm not sure it actually ends up working properly there either. For the use case cited in code I would imagine it's actually the most reasonable approach in ldap to just get the authentication done for the first search and then possibly correct the suggestion manually if you got one (though that would be from a non-ldap search) and go from there.

Most ldap do not require that kind of authentication anyway, and if they do it's just madness for the user not to use the password manager to remember the password after the initial use. 

All in all, I don't see a justification to implement it either.
