Firefox Spellchecker

  Pine Man 13:56 13 Apr 2009

Just changed from IE8 to Firefox. Wow that is fast!!

However I can't find a spellchecker in Firefox. Has it got one or are there any good freebies that work?

I should have added, 'Check My Spelling As I Type' is enabled but doesn't seem to work. If it did it wooodnt have allowed me to spell wouldn't the way I just did:-(

You need the English (British) dictionary pack.

Firefox has a built-in spell checker (as you have found); however, there may be a problem. See:

Also check from FF's Tools>Options>Content tab that British UK is the Default.

I use the British UK version listed in Belatucadrus's link.

I have both IE7 and Firefox. I just tried typing Woody Woodpecker in 'Firefox' with 'ooo' instead of 'oo' in each word and it immediately pointed up my 'Mistake' . Even though I have the 'English US' dictionary?

I have installed the English (British) dictionary pack and that did the trick - magic - thanks everybody:-))
