I am useing windows 7 and I use hotmail for my emailson my laptop and I found even though I selected to check spelling, it still won't do it and if I need to forward an email, the main body of the email is blank. Now on my other PC which I use windows XP and still use Fire fox and hotmail all of this works fine. Can you help?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== since I bought this laptop and installed Fire Fox

See Blank messages in Hotmail

Not all locales come with a dictionary installed for licensing reasons. If you do not have the en-US locale then check that you have a dictionary installed (Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) and selected.

You can see which dictionary is selected if you right-click in a text area and open the Languages submenu. Also make sure that [[X]"Check Spelling" in the right-click context menu has a tick. You can also try to toggle the "Check Spelling" item off and on again.
