If you use the browsers autofill feature to fill a form field, the change event dosen't seem to fire. There has to be a keydown on the field first. Not sure if this is a bug, similar to this: http://bugs.jqueryui.com/ticket/6109 - So sorry if this is a known issue.

Thank you for submitting a ticket to the jQuery Bug Tracker!

Looking through the Stack Overflow post you shared, it would appear that a solution to the problem you're looking for is available in one of the comments on that thread (see the code from FurryBrains.com).

That aside, if you can provide us with a reduced test case where you've tried to solve this issue on jsFiddle.net we'll investigate the issue further and get back to you shortly.

AFAIK, browsers do not fire any events when they autofill forms.
