Hello,

1) I'd like "i" (as a word) to be marked in red, and have "I" as a suggestion.

2) I've added "tooltip" to the personal dictionary. I'd like also "Tooltip" and "tooltips" to be evaluated as correct.


What do I need to change in the dic/aff files?

Thank you

Spell check has long been a problem for me. It sometimes works, but most of the time it is not working, or is delayed by several minutes. The option to do spell checking is on. And the fact that it sometimes works indicates that the dictionary is present. This problems has been present for several releases. I am currently on 80.0.1

I know that before computers were common, a typist really strove to be accurate. But now you go for speed, and not accuracy at all. So, my messages tend to have a lot of errors. I cringe when I think of how many messages I typed before I realized that spell check was only occasionally working.

My work-around is to type what I need into my word processor, and then copy/paste into the web site where I want the text.

Spell checking doesn't seem to be working in form text inputs, both single and multi-line. I have my language set to English (United Kingdom) and I've also tried setting layout.spellcheckDefault to 2.

When I right click over such a form text input, the context menu has no mention of spelling or languages. I'm in a corporate environment so it's possible they're doing something with the config?
