After FF24 update some input fields just don't want to check me spelling. I have all dictionaries installed, but on some text arias i just don't have a spellcheck option. Only thing i have is "install dictionaries...". In some other *more simple* text fields everything works just fine. Most problematic are all kinds of visual html editors. In the most cases i have problem as i mentioned above, but if i open raw html window for exmple, the splellcheck function of FF24 works as it should. That what i mean by "more simple text fields" i.e. less visual formatting.
Any suggestions, please?
P.S. Tried on different PCs, with different browsers including Nightly. The result is the same on anything above 23.
Certain websites can disable the spellcheck feature in certain textareas on their webpage.
Have you ever been able to use spellcheck on the page your are having issues with?
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
Does it have effect if you copy the two dictionary files (xx-XX.dic and xx-XX.aff) of each dictionary to the dictionaries folder in the Firefox program folder?
This dictionaries folder may not exist if you have a Firefox locale that doesn't come with a dictionary.
You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder:

That is a contenteditable text area with spellcheck disabled.
