When I right click on a red lined word, the box pops up but covers part of the word. Often, the word is just a form of a common word in the dictionary. I just need to add the new form or compare the red lined form to the spelling of the root word. If the box covers part of the word, I cannot compare the spellings. The box covers the top 2/3rds of the last 4 characters of the red lined word. The solutions is to have the box appear above the word.

You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

  • Options/Preferences -> Advanced -> General -> Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"

You need to close and restart Firefox after toggling this setting.

You can check if there is an update for your graphics display driver and check for hardware acceleration related issues.

Tried it. No change. I believe this is a coding issue. It does the same on my other computer. I found a work around. If I put the cursor after the last letter, the box appears to the right of the word. But, if I put the cursor within the letters of the red lined word, the box will block the top 1/2 to 2/3rds of the letters to the right of the cursor. It would be good if the box was coded to stay above the redlined word. Microsoft makes their spell check box even worse by including far to many options below the suggested words. Spell check is supposed to make life simpler, not more complicated or frustrating.

OK, I've checked it and the context menu appears to open with the top left corner aligned to where you right-click. This means that best is to right-click space directly next to the misspelled word or center the cursor on the wavy underline (i.e. click a few pixels below the word) and not in the word itself.

Note that I see this in older Firefox versions as well, so this isn't recent.

That's dumb. The box should use the top or bottom of the cursor bar for the placement of the box. In 25 years of moving cursor bars, I never would have thought the software looks for the center of the cursor bar. Not very intuitive.
