Why does gmail spell check highlight partial words?

I recently received the latest version of Firefox for my Windows XP desktop computer. Since that time, when I type e-mails the spell check puts a wiggly red line under parts of a word. When I click to spell check the entire e-mail, parts of correctly spelled words are highlighted in yellow and the dictionary tries to provide spellings for these highlighted parts of each word. I have gone into Firefox options and unchecked the box for spell checking as I type. That did not help. What can I do to fix this problem?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Hi,

You can update Firefox via Help (Alt + H) > About Firefox, or from https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/

Updating

If you're using an add-on, you can try to Disable it in Tools (Alt + T) > Add-ons > Extensions. Please note that Gmail has a spell check function, so if the problem persists, you may have to disable the Gmail spell check. The Gmail support would also be helpful.

I have this problem too, and the latest updates have not resolved it.

I submitted a separate question describing the problem in more technical detail: insertion of font tags
