SpellCheck inconstantly working
Problem only developed recently. Happens mostly on single line text boxes, but it varies. What happens is that the spell check might be active the first couple of boxes, then i might have to right click in the box to get it to be active, and then it will just stop altogether. When it stops the spell check option on the right click menu is not selected, it works only in that instance if i reselect it. At the same time the check box will be selected in the preferences. I have done everything that i have found in here, i have a dictionary selected, i have changed the settings (an added some) in about:config, removed added and removed the persdict.dat file. I don't have any add-ons that should be making calls to the spell check, and this change in behavior doesn't correspond to and add-on updates. Anyone have any ideas???

It is possible that websites disable the spell check in text boxes and single line input fields by specifying a spellcheck="false" attribute.
Google does that with some of its input fields (even the main www.google.com page now has it).
