I have a popup box that shows up with spelling corrections and I have no idea where it came from. How do I get rid of it?

Posted

I never saw this before and none of my addons would seem to support this. It messes me up as I type. I just want rid of it.

I think McCoy has the answer, that it's a Windows 10 feature.

Here's another recent thread about it (amusing screenshots): https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1244484

I had absolutely no clue what that was or where it came from. I did a refresh of Firefox and it appeared to get rid of it. Thank you!

I found this feature and turned it off. That is probably one of the most useless "features" ever included in a Windows OS.
