Spell check has long been a problem for me. It sometimes works, but most of the time it is not working, or is delayed by several minutes. The option to do spell checking is on. And the fact that it sometimes works indicates that the dictionary is present. This problems has been present for several releases. I am currently on 80.0.1

I know that before computers were common, a typist really strove to be accurate. But now you go for speed, and not accuracy at all. So, my messages tend to have a lot of errors. I cringe when I think of how many messages I typed before I realized that spell check was only occasionally working.

My work-around is to type what I need into my word processor, and then copy/paste into the web site where I want the text.

Spell checking doesn't seem to be working in form text inputs, both single and multi-line. I have my language set to English (United Kingdom) and I've also tried setting layout.spellcheckDefault to 2.

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?

A picture is worth a thousand words. What i can't screenshot is the suggestions for the correct word, which appear to be from a language other than English.

However, as typing here, the problem seems to have gone away. It appears the problem might be FB or something in some way FB connected. Containers perhaps?

Hi, I'm trying to use Firefox to spell check a text written in British English. But as the attached animated gif shows (it can also be viewed online at https://i.imgur.com/9QLMUfE.gif), Firefox refuses to spell check. I add the right dictionary, I check the add-ons, and I check the languages for spell checking, but it still doesn't work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

When I am entering text into a text box (for example a textarea html tag) with Firefox Developer Edition 61.0b2 (64-bit), and many previous versions, every single word is underlined as red. When I right click and select the language, US English is the only option. To begin to debug this I started firefox in safe mode from the command line. The first time I place my cursor in a text box, the following appears in my terminal:

error: file:///usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/dictionaries/en_US.aff: cannot open

error: file:///usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/dictionaries/en_US.dic: cannot open

error: file:///usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/dictionaries/en_US.aff: cannot open


This seems like something one might expect to see considering the the spell checking problem. However, if I run: "ls -l /usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/dictionaries/" on my system I get the following:

-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3090 May 9 23:34 en_US.aff

-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 545233 May 9 23:34 en_US.dic


So the dictionary files are definitely there. Furthermore I have opened them to make sure they are populated with the words from the English language.

To remedy the issue I have tried "resetting" firefox so that I have a new profile, but this did nothing. Interestingly enough, when I run the non-developer edition of firefox, the spell checking works as expected.

How can I go about fixing this issue?

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?

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!

The Language selector menu from the right-click menu does not select the chosen language to use for spell checking.

I have only 1 dictionary installed, the British english dictionary, but both United kingdom and United states appear in the language menu. Selecting either of these does not work, there's no checkmark or anything next to the selected language. The spell checker works except for US/GB word spelling differences.

This started a few months ago and despite having all updates and even trying a new profile nothing seems to get the language selector to work.

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?

Thank you
