input text box not behaving properly when debug points are set

HI,
There is the following input html :
<input type="text" class="flock-js-input" value="..." placeholder="Search.." autocomplete="off">

And the following listener on it :
$('.flock-js-input').keydown(function(e){
    if(false) {

     }
});

$('.flock-js-input').keyup(function(e) {
     
});
The false is just the case i am testing and is not the actual values there...
Now when user types in something in input textbox and keydown listener invokes
But there are following issues :
1) keyup listener does not invoke
2) The textbox does not get filled with the key typed

This happens only when i have put debug points in firebug inside keydown listener.
When debug points are not set... things work perfectly fine... the keyup listener also gets invoked and textbox also gets filled with the keys pressed
What could be the reason for this.

Thanks

There is nothing wrong with the code as you have posted. Consider this
<script>
$(function() {
  $('.flock-js-input').keydown(function(e){
    console.log('keydown');
    if(false) {
    }
  });

  $('.flock-js-input').keyup(function(e) {
    console.log('keyup');
  });
});
</script>

Open in new window

Working sample here - F12 to view the console when you do a key press in the <input> both events fire.

Without seeing all your code (if you have stripped code out) we can't diagnose.

Hi,
In the same code that you pasted... if i put debug point on both the console statements then only the keydown event is fired and keyup is not also the textbox does not get filled up with the text.
I put the debug points in my firebug on your page

That is a function of the debugger - not the code. The code works but if the debugger is not caching the events for you to continue to debug with then that is an issue with the debugger.
