    I have a simple aspx page, containing one button and one combobox:

        <section id="content" class="content">     
            <article id="actions">
                <telerik:RadButton ID="btnNewEvent" runat="server" RenderMode="Lightweight"
                    Text="<%$ Resources:App,NewEvent %>" AutoPostBack="false"
            <article id="search" class="search">
                <telerik:RadComboBox ID="cmbxSearch" runat="server" RenderMode="Lightweight"
                    CssClass="search-field" EmptyMessage="<%$ Resources:App,SearchFieldEmptyMessage %>"
                    AllowCustomText="true" EnableLoadOnDemand="True" MarkFirstMatch="false"


    function btnNewEvent_Clicked(s, e) {
        alert("TODO: Open RAD window");

    function cmbxSearch_Load(s, e) {
        var input = s.get_inputDomElement();

    function cmbxSearch_SelectedIndexChanged(s, e) {
        alert("TODO: Search");

    If I press on btnNewEvent, alert saying "TODO: Open RAD window" is displayed, which is correct.
    If I type some text into cmbxSearch (RadComboBox), in Firefox browser, I get two alerts. First one is saying "TODO: Open RAD window", the other one "TODO: Search". Why is button event triggered on enter key pressed? In IE, everything works as expected.

    I am using Windows 8 with IE 10 and Firefox 26 and telerik UI controls v2013.2.717.40.

    Hi Vlad,

    Can you try setting UseSubmitBehavior="false" for the RadButton.

    <telerik:RadButton ID="btnNewEvent" runat="server" Text="Click" UseSubmitBehavior="false". .>
