Dear Sir or Madam,

I'm running 101.0.1 and spell check no longer works on any mail app like Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, BT Mail. If I use Chrome or Edge then spell check works correctly. This is despite my Firefox Settings being as below.....

Language Choose the languages used to display menus, messages, and notifications from Firefox. ENGLISH GB Set Alternatives… ENGLISH GB Choose your preferred language for displaying pages. Choose… ENGLISH (United Kingdom) (en-gb) Check your spelling as you type = Tick (Yes)

Could you please advise a fix?

Kind regards,

Neil.

P.S. If I use Chrome or Edge then spell check works correctly.

Hi Dropa,

You are correct, I no longer had a dictionary installed. I have no idea how it has suddenly disappeared from Firefox though. I installed "British-English Dictionary (GB) by darmeth" and now have a functioning spell check for my emails.

Thank you very much for your help and assistance.

All the best.

Neil.

It is possible that you confused dictionary with language pack and that you actually do not have a dictionary installed.

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 sub menu. At least one dictionary should be installed and have a check mark to indicate that it is selected.

  • open the "Add Dictionaries" link to install a dictionary if you do not have one.

The spelling checker is enabled if [X] "Check Spelling" in the right-click context menu has a checkmark.

You can enable or disable spell checking globally:

You can look here for dictionaries:

Note that for spell check you need a dictionary. A language pack provides string translations for the user interface.

You can check on the about:config page whether layout.spellcheckDefault is set to 1 (multi-line) or 2 (single-line).
