#10542 closed bug (wontfix)

Autocomplete: up/down arrow do a select on Ubuntu (maybe others?)

Since probably an upgrade of Chromium on my Ubuntu 14.04 now arrow keys directly select the element. It works with Firefox and was ok with the previous version of Chromium.

The test case is very easy :

Type 'C' and down arrow key, wait 500ms and you will have the issue...

Hi fscherma,

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to jQuery UI. This works fine on OS X, and I don't have an Ubuntu install to test this on. What specifically happens after 500ms? Do you get an error, or does the option automatically get selected, or...?

I've said 500ms because its the delay param of the example. Yes the element is selected (content set to the input field) and no possibilities to select the others choices.

Hey fscherma,

Unfortunately we're having a hard time finding someone with an Ubuntu install. So at the moment we can't recreate the problem to look into this.

We were able to recreate the problem intermittently, so I'll mark this as valid for now.

fscherma - In my testing I could intermittently get similar behavior from what you describe but want to verify something.

Are you stating that to reproduce you are using <shift>+c (Uppercase C) and then using the down arrow key? Or is this happening all the time no matter what letter or case the letter is and regardless of whether or not you use the shift key? Thanks.

Good news :)

I've wrote 'C' (because their is many choices displayed with 'C' but any others will do the case. Until you don't wait for the delay between pressing an arrow key, you can navigate to others choices. You have to wait 500ms after released an arrow to reproduce everytime this issue.
