trigger("submit") fails in Firefox

Triggering a native submit behavior on a form element is failing in Firefox 3.5.2. The problem seems to be a regression from the fix for, which addressed MSIE throwing errors on certain triggered events where the type contains a colon character. I put together two simple samples to illustrate the difference between 1.3.2 and the latest build.

The trigger succeeds (1.3.2):

The trigger fails (nightly):

I have included a patch which seems to correct the issue.

In fact out of Opera 10, FF 3.5.2, Chrome 3.0 and IE 7 submit was triggered only in the latter.

I replace the

1041 >> nativeFn();


1041 >> elem[type]();

It's working in firefox 3.5 and 3.6.beta4.

I think that the line

nativeFn = elem [type];

get a link or copy function.

this seems to fail with the closure, tore out the function of context.

Sorry for my english, and I learn Javascript less than one year.
