Change widgets to use initEvent(..., true, true); for backwards compatibility

Prior to bug 234455 events always bubbled through XUL elements. We should maintain compatibility by fixing all our calls to initEvent.

This includes backouts of the tabbrowser.xml changes from bug 234455.

Proposed patch

Just checking that what I've done for radio.xml matches the new event system.

Proposed patch

Looks right to me.
So you are backing out my changes to tabbrowser.xmls because you fix events to bubble.
Radio.xmls look right too, there the 'select' event is created using .initEvent("select", false, true) so no need to call .preventBubble().
Thanks for doing this!

(I wonder one thing... why initEvent("evenName", false, true) has been used so often...)

Smaug: I suspect it's a simple matter of copy&paste :-)

I tried this patch and installed multizilla, it worked a dream.
Without this patch only the first tab on multizilla is connected to the url bar
although new tabs appear and will open a new page if you right click links and select open in new tab.
New tabs are not connected to the url bar. Any url entered opens in the first tab.

... radio.xml changes. As I understand it, the parameter has no effect on the branch, so this patch essentially does nothing but keep things in sync.
