  1. Well, before i got firefox updated to 2.0.0.9, the spell check worked perfectly...
    after updating to 2.0.0.9, it doesn;t work. I have it ticked in the tools aswell..

    What is the problem? How do i turn it on?

    Thanks

    Click the edit button in your post and right click in the window. Make sure "Spell check this field" is selected.

    Ok, click tools/addons Do you have any dictionaries installed?

    If not, click the get extensions and go and install whatever dictionary you want.

    The spell check in Firefox will show a thin red line under misspelled words. A right click on the word will produce a menu with options, one of them is the correct spelling which you can choose.
