Could you attach a reduced testcase to this bug please.
Can you also confirm the problem exists with the latest nightly and a clean profile:

The devmo page is just wrong.  We don't implement this event, and never have.

ccing page author in case I'm missing something here...

Updated the devmo page to show these events as unimplemented.
Given that:
1) We don't implement these
2) WebKit doesn't implement these (bug 26139), and as far  as I can find neither Opera, nor IE.
3) These events have been removed from HTML5, both HTML 5 W3C (CR) and HTML5 WHATWG. (See: http://html5.org/tools/web-apps-tracker?from=6529&to=6530 )

I think it is safe to RESOLVED this bug as WONTFIX. (Reopen if I'm wrong)
