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?
When my page (the container div of my query form with the input line) regains the focus - for example, because the user switched back from another browser tab - I fire the autocomplete search (bound to the #input) simply again.
