Wont Spell Check in reply boxes on forums
I have moved over to Firefox from chrome and noticed one big difference and that is Firefox does not check for spelling as im typing in reply boxes....doesnt even work in this box
looks like installing dictionary has fixed it, why would it come preinstalled without one and have spellchecking on as default?Read this answer in context 👍 1

Do you have a dictionary installed and selected?
You can see which dictionary is selected if you right-click in a text area and open the Languages submenu. At least one dictionary should be installed and have a check mark to indicate that it is selected.
- Open the "Add Dictionaries" link to install a dictionary if you do not have one.
- Make sure that [X] "Check Spelling" in the right-click context menu is check-marked.
You can enable or disable spell checking globally:
- Tools > Options > Advanced : General: Browsing: "Check my spelling as I type"
You can look here for dictionaries:

What Firefox locale do you use?
Only a few locales come with a dictionary because of license reasons. With locales that do not come with a dictionary you need to install the dictionary yourself.
