Lately, I've come across several Web sites that have attempted to improve upon the default HTML text input tools. This is okay, but some of them go so far as to disable any spell checker facilities built into the browser being used - which I find to be an intolerable abuse of power on the part of the Web site designer. Is there a Greasemonkey script or some other trick I can use to say "Dammit, I don't give a @#$% about your opinion on this, Mr. Designer; *I* want my spell checker!"

And before anyone suggests it, the well-publicized about:config tweaks do not prevent the Web page from overriding this; in that sense, about:config is a suggestion, not a command. How do I make it into a command?

Firefox is not switching dictionaries. I have installed Finnish dictionary and Firefox is using only that now. If I right click and try to change dictionary to US or any of the English dictionaries, it won't change it.

Hello,

The problem I have is that if I misspell a word instead of replacing it the replacement is added to the text or if you hit spacebar to start the next word the suggestion is added giving you a duplicate. Chrome works with it just fine as well as Libre Office, the Facebook for Windows app (of course) and other desktop (non "Windows 10" apps). please see the screenshots attached.

You'll see the word jupiter is suggested to the capitalized. I hit the space bar and when the suggestion is handed to Firefox it appends it instead of replacing the word that needs correction or completed.

In this sentence I'll select a suggestion to complete a word that I am typing, here: constconstruction (see attached images)

Is this something you guys can fix?

Firefox 70.0.1 on Mint Linux 19.2, though this has been going on for several months now with older versions of FF:

Periodically, at unpredictable intervals, Firefox reverts my choice of spellcheck dictionary (English US) to English Australian. In the FF Preferences i don't even have Australian as an option: i have only UK, US, and Canada. Nonetheless, now and then, FF will start marking the word "color" as misspelled, at which point i know that the dictionary has once again been swapped out. Right-clicking the misspelled word and selecting "Languages..." reveals that Australian is always, without exception, the one it's been switched to.

My system-wide language is US English. Nothing, on any of my systems, is configured to use Australian, so FF making this particular choice of dictionaries completely befuddles me.

The "troubleshooting information" which was automatically attached to this post confirms that i don't have Australian English activated in FF.

How do i keep FF from randomly switching dictionaries on me?

In English words have to be separated by spaces even if you use them together as composite concept. For example the concept "spelling check" is a composition of spelling and check. In Dutch those words should be spelled without space: "tekstcontrole" is correct, "tekst controle" isn't. The Firefox spell check is only recognizing the separate words (tekst and controle) and is underlining the contraction (tekstcontrole) as incorrect when in fact only the latter is correct. This is not an exception, in fact most sentences have such words, so using the Firefox spelling check in Dutch always results in lots of red lines.

Hello,

1) I'd like "i" (as a word) to be marked in red, and have "I" as a suggestion.

2) I've added "tooltip" to the personal dictionary. I'd like also "Tooltip" and "tooltips" to be evaluated as correct.


What do I need to change in the dic/aff files?

Every time I write in another language I have to select the language I am writing in manually to not have everything underlined in red (if the spelling check is not in the corresponding language by chance). I remember I didn't have this problem when I used another browser in the past. Because I would like to continue using Firefox I am trying to solve this problem, but couldn't find a solution so far. Any tips are very welcome. Thanks a lot in advance.

Firefox's onboard spellchecker needs to go back to college, or probably high school! Every day I have several words with the dotted underline, telling me they're not words, or not spelled correctly. However, when checking the dictionary, I confirm that the spell-check feature is wrong, and I am correct! I don't want to disable it completely, as it does let me know when I've made a typo, which I can quickly correct, but it's a pain in the butt to keep having it say something's wrong with a word, and there's not... I honestly can't believe it can be that hard to use a source that's accurate, when it's something on everyone's screen that uses Firefox...

My PC (running XP) died recently and since setting up this new one (running Windows 7) I can't get Firefox's spell checker to work.

I have the 'check spelling as I type' ticked in Firefox's advanced settings, and I have also download and installed the British Languge Pack add-on, but still it doesn't work.

The problem seems to be that I don;t have the usual 'Check speling' option when I right click in a text box (see attached)

When I type I make the same mistakes over and over. for instance I want to type " the" but it comes out "hte", I want to type "with" and it comes out " wiht". You get the picture. One day while correcting my "hte" to "the" I right clicked on the mouse and found a check spelling option on the drop down. Some how I changed "hte" to a real word and now there is no red line under it to help me see my error. I only have this problem in Gmail and as I checked into it I was told it was my browser. Currently as I look at what I just typed there are red lines under "wiht" and "Gmail" but not under "hte". I would love to be able to change "hte" back to a misspelled word so it has a red line under it and I can remedy the spelling. HELP!!!!

I have read all related post and tried the suggested solutions but didn't manage to solve the issue. In fact when I right-click in any text box containing more than one line, the menu doesn't even list the choice "check spelling", as explained here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-use-firefox-spell-checker

I just installed Firefox (53.0.3) and I'm on Windows 10.

I am a linguist and I am coming back to Mozilla because, from previous experiences, it handles several languages much better than other browsers! Provided that I manage to activtae the language management option...... so thanks in advance for your help!

I have noticed that Firefox spell check sometimes doesn't detect simple mistakes that you would think it would be easier for it to suggest the right word.

Examples:

"Mistery" it suggests Mister, Mister y, Misery, Misters and Mastery but it doesn't suggest Mystery

also in words like

"Dissapear" it just suggests Dispensary and no Disappear

Is there anything that needs to be fixed on the way the spell check works or what?

When I right click over such a form text input, the context menu has no mention of spelling or languages. I'm in a corporate environment so it's possible they're doing something with the config?

This is more of a complaint than a question.

The integrated spell checker in Firefox really, really sucks. It things that "Robert's" is different than "Robert" AND you cannot add "Robert's" to the dictionary. It thinks "ROBERT" is different than "Robert."

GOOD spell checkers are case-insensitive when checking a word ("Robert" = "ROBERT" = "RObert" etc), they know what plurals and possessives are ("Robert's" is not a spelling error). I could go on.

The original "ABCspellcheck" (?) addon was a much, much better spell checker.
