    nsIAutoCompleteSearch

    This interface is implemented by search providers to start and stop autocomplete.
    Inherits from: nsISupports Last changed in Gecko 1.7

    Users call startSearch() and pass in an nsIAutoCompleteObserver when the search starts. Results can be sent to the listener either synchronously or asynchronously, depending on the implementation.
