Automatic spell check doesn't seem to be working. Or at least it works inconsistently. Worked fine for 3 weeks after I got my laptop,but now notice some incorrect spelling,"not being "flaggged" just right now. Anybody have a suggestion?.

Think Pad T520,month old. Nothing else real special. Could have a download or a registration to a site messed this up?

Please check if this happens in Safe Mode.

The spelling feature setting is in Tools (Alt + T) > Options > Advanced > General, under Browsing. If additional dictionaries are installed, the correct dictionary should be selected: right-click inside a text box like this and Languages. The manually added entries are stored in persdict.dat in the Firefox Profile Folder. If the problem persists also try deleting this file.
