I use 2010.1.519.40 version of Rad Controls for ASP.NET AJAX
My RadComboBox uses markfirstmatch="true and allowcustomtext="true"
Here is code snippet:
It does not work in IE9.
Autocomplete does not work at all and when I type custom text into control, on postback previously selected is set and RadComboBox1.Text on server side is set to that item.
Is there any fix/workaround?

IE 9, FireFox 4 and Google Chrome10 are supported by Telerik controls starting Q1 2011. So I suggest you to migrate to the new version. With older versions these browsers are only partially supported and the new features/enhancements or bugfixes merely for new versions of our AJAX components.
I know that you mentioned that Telerik will support since 2011 Q1. However, the latest version of .Net 2.0 is 2010 Q3 SP2. My issue is probably similar or the same. There is not much problem with IE8; however, with IE9, I have to use compatibility view in order for the "AllowCustomText" to work as expected. If not click compatibility view on IE9, when users type something not in the list, it will go back to the previous selected item on the list. If there is a workaround or some code to put, please let me know. Or if the latest version of .Net 2.0 is later than 2010 Q3 SP2 and it fixes this problem, please let me know as well.
You have two options:
1. Force the page to open in Compatibility View.
2. You may build the source code of some of the latest versions(Q1 20011 and later) against .net2.0.

I guess I have to find some other ways to achieve this.
My suggestion is try the second option and build a .NET 2.0 dll from the source code, as my colleague had suggested.
On how to force the page to open in compatibility view, please refer to the following help document.
