    Hello Sitefinity Team

    (use of Sitefinity 3.7.2136)

    I created the following test page that should show the following functionality: when I select the second item in the comboxbox with the keyboard and press the enter button or select the second item with the mouse an alert with the text defined in the "Info1" attribute should be shown.

    In IE this works fine but in FireFox a postback is carried out before the alert/confirm is shown when pressing the enter key. How can I prevent Firefox from handling the postback event before the alert/confirm is shown?

            var eventFired = false;
            function KeyPressCombo(sender, e) {
                if (e.get_domEvent().keyCode == 13) {
                    eventFired = false;
            function IndexChangedCombo(sender, e) {
                if (!eventFired) {
                    //sender.get_selectedItem() is the current item; eventArgs.get_item() the new selected item
                    var item = e.get_item(); //index changed
                    if (!item) item = sender.findItemByText(sender.get_text()); //enter button pressed
                    if (item) {
                        var itemText = item.get_text();
                        var itemInfo = item.get_attributes().getAttribute("Info1");
                        if (itemInfo) {
