Just wasted 2 hours, because ontextentered is documented to be an event, but it's not. addEventListener() does not work, and not even ontextentered="onTextEntered(event);" works. The latter also fails silently, due to |event| being undefined, but without any error on the error console or OS console. The autocomplete.xml fireEvent() method "is just plain wrong" (quote). You should just fire a real event. If there's anything speaking against it, solve it in a different way. This is just a mean foot angle. Haha, yet another XUL developer on the floor.
<https://developer.mozilla.org/En/XUL/Textbox_%28Toolkit_autocomplete%29#a-ontextentered> says "This event handler is called when a result is selected for the textbox."
How is it an event handler if there is no event object?
