Description

Setting the autocomplete on either a textarea or a content editable, I cannot use the up and down arrow keys to move the cursor.

Tested with the following versions of Firefox :

  • Firefox 17 Linux
  • Firefox 11 and 17 Win

It works well in the latest Chrome and IE8.

This makes sense, since we're preventing the keypress event. But the code for handling key events is so gross that it's really hard to change. I wish browsers were consistent about key events. Looks like we might need to add a fourth flag to handle all the browser quirks unless we can find some way to clean this up.
