Spell Check does not work

Only recently made move from IE ... Running w& and Firefox 10.0.2

I have spell check enabled in Tolls>option>advanced Also if I go to tool menu bottom oprion is now shown as "Check Spellings"

However it does not work -example Thid speeling is nut corrcreted


If I 'right click' in this window it does show check spelling as "ticked", just does not work.

Not sure if relevant but spelling works fine in Thunderbird.

Re: Spell Check does not work

Do you have a dictionary installed and selected?

  • You can see which dictionary is selected if you right-click in a text area and open the Languages submenu.
  • Open the "Add Dictionaries" link to install a dictionary if you do not have one.
  • Make sure that [X] "Check Spelling" in the right-click context menu is check-marked.

You can enable or disable spell checking globally:

  • Tools > Options > Advanced : General: Browsing: "Check my spelling as I type"

You can look here for dictionaries:

Seems odd that although spell check as I type was enabled and "check spellings" was 'ticked' and it showed correct language under preferences - I still had to install a dictionary ... Fixed now anyway ... Thnx
