jQuery UI autocomplete bug: autocomplete suggestions disappear when returning from another browser tab
I run an application with a working jQuery UI autocomplete form in a first tab. I do know how to use the autocomplete function. I also do know how to use $("myinput").autocomplete( "search", currentInput ); to manually trigger the list of suggestions to be shown.
Scenario - how to replicate the bug =========================
In my Firefox browser, I now change to a second tab with a different web address.
Autocomplete bug =============
When I return to the first browser tab, the input "jav" is still present, but the list of suggestions has disappeared, there is no output any more.
For me, this is a severe bug in autocomplete. Why should the autocomplete output disappear only because the user switches back to this browser tab?
