Steps to reproduce:

I executed the following JavaScript.

-------------------------

var e = document.createEvent('MouseEvents');
e.initEvent("click", true, true);

var a = document.createElement("A");
a.href = "javascript:void(0)";

var b = a.dispatchEvent(e);


Actual results:

b was false!


Expected results:

It should have been true. With this code, it is true.

-------------------------

var e = document.createEvent('Event');
e.initEvent("click", true, true);

var a = document.createElement("A");
a.href = "javascript:void(0)";

var b = a.dispatchEvent(e);
