Firefox 60.5ESR adding dictionary, right click not working as expected
I've a question regarding the "automatic" spelling check of Firefox. I'm trying to deploy Firefox 60.5ESR and I would like to enable it by default. So far so good when you are typing in a box like this one - it's enabled and allow me to check and select the right word with the context menu.
But, if I try to spellcheck against the search box of google, in the context menu the "Check Spelling" is disabled. I've tried to modify layout.spellcheckDefault=2 in the "about:config", but still the same behavior.
Am I missing something? Maybe a GPO?
Thanks in advice.

A website can disable the Firefox spelling checker with a spellcheck="false" attribute. They can do that because they want to use their own spell check, possibly via a button on the toolbar of the editor. You can check that via the right-click context menu in the builtin Inspector.
- "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Web Developer
