Turning autocomplete on for a XUL widget

This article is about XUL widgets and not about HTML form inputs.

First, declare a panel with the "autocomplete" type, like so:

<panel id="popup_autocomplete" type="autocomplete" noautofocus="true" />

Now set the autocompletepopup attribute of your <browser> element to the id of the panel you just declared:

<browser id="my_browser" ... autocompletepopup="popup_autocomplete" />

Finally, make sure that the value of the browser.formfill.enable pref is set to true.
