Here's some related research

We should likely take Mathias' work and put it into UI Core and use it in any plugin where this is needed. This would cut down on a bit of code currently in Autocomplete.

This manifests on Windows as well, despite the bug title.

Probably implement with special event

Proposed implementation (Mathias)


  • IE9 doesn't fire input on backspace
  • Opera mobile lacks support (?)
