Autocomplete doesn't close opened selection box when in drop-down mode

See this example:

It used to close when it was opened and you clicked on the arrow. If you look at the source-code for the example you'll notice that this was intended:

// close if already visible
if ( input.autocomplete( "widget" ).is( ":visible" ) ) {
    input.autocomplete( "close" );
    removeIfInvalid( input );

This is related to jQuery UI, not jQuery core. I would say to file a bug at, but I've already fixed this.

Ah, I guess that explains why I was sure I had an "rosenfeld" account but wasn't able to log-in :)

I didn't find the jQuery UI tickets link yesterday when I looked for it so I thought they were integrated with jQuery bug tracker system.

Today I could find the link in the bottom of the page. Maybe you should include it also in the top menus (under Support maybe).

Thanks for fixing, I'll take a look at the commit to patch it myself as I can't use master due to some incompatible changes to the tabs API. Maybe you have already applied it to the 1.9 branch, I'll take a look.

Ah, I see you didn't change the library itself, just the example code. Great, I'll give it a try :)

I basically fixed it in my code by handling "mousedown" instead of "click" and removing the "input.autocomplete('close')". But then it worked in my development environment but "input.autocomplete 'search', ''" didn't have any effect when deployed to our servers (when debugging on Chrome developer's tool I noticed it was indeed being called).

I had to change to this for it to work on the production servers:

setTimeout(function(){input.autocomplete('search', '')}, 0)

Any ideas why?
