spell check does not work for both English and Hungarian on updated computer
My Mozilla Firefox was updated and now my English and Hungarian spellchecks do not work. I have tried deleting and then reinstalling the dictionaries and followed all recommended solutions to no avail. I went to Mozilla tools and options and languages to check if the two languages were installed. I removed them and reinstalled them. Auto correct is checked. This is most disheartening since everything worked perfectly until a few days ago. What is the point of having spell check if it will not work? The improper spelled word in English is underlined in red, but clicking on the word does not do anything. Before I would get a list of possible words to fit what I was trying to write. In Hungarian ALL the words are underlined and clicking on them does not reveal options either. Spell check should not be this difficult! People can send people up to the moon and back but I can't get spell check to work on an updated computer! Please help!!! I really rely on spell check in BOTH languages. Thank you!

You normally right-click in the text editor area.
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 sub menu. 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.
The spelling checker is enabled if [X] "Check Spelling" in the right-click context menu has a checkmark.
You can check the Browser Console for dictionary related messages.
