Does the spell check work on this forum ? If for instance you use the quote button to reply to my post do you see spellings mistakes highlighted hylite

You may need to install a dictionary into Firefox depending on what language you need to use. You do appear to have the latest version 47 of Firefox.

Note the spelchecking works when you have a text area open that you are able to type and edit in. It will not work on single line field or the address bar. It will not work on pictures and videos. See also

I don't post on YouTube, so I haven't tested this myself: could you right-click the editing area and if Check Spelling is not "checked", click it and see whether Firefox starts spell-checking that editing area.
