When I right-click within a text box, the client program's context menu comes up, not Firefox's, therefore, I can't use Firefox's built-in spell checker options, such as suggested corrections and "add to dictionary." Which is frustrating because the spell checker does find mistakes and new words, but I can't do anything with them because the client program's context menu gets in the way.
Is there some way to either change the built-in spell checker's menu from right-click to say, left-click, or a button on the main browser?

hello sachss, you can disable the possibility for websites to override the context menu of the browser - enter about:config into the firefox address bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up) & search for the preference named dom.event.contextmenu.enabled. double-click it and change its value to false.
Thanks, that solved my issue.
