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 submenu.
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.

You can enable or disable spell checking globally:
- Edit > Preferences > Advanced : General: Browsing: "Check my spelling as I type"
You can look here for dictionaries:
