Now that LDAP is no longer using the XPFE autocomplete interfaces, we can remove them from the XBL widget.
Attached patch Proposed patchSplinter Review
Also happens to fix a potential race condition on Linux whereby results may be invalidated incorrectly if they arrive in a different order to the search list. (Don't worry, the race condition is very hard to detect.)

Will file followup bugs on:
* Removing obsolete files from the tree
* Adding other toolkit features, such as
  o support for getLabelAt
  o support for getImageAt
  o support for removeValueAt

Proposed patch

While testing I managed to trigger an error:

Error: TypeError: input[0].syncSessions is not a function
Source file: chrome://messenger/content/addressbook/abMailListDialog.js
Line: 443

Combing through MXR I see several files that need to be updated:


Except for these all the autocomplete textboxes I tested didn't show any problems.

Right, these should have been removed by bug 452232, but they weren't. Oops.

inspector needs it for backcompat. xpfe test is obsolete and unused, I was going to remove it along with the xpfe src and public files.

These also need to be removed.
