Do you have a download link for a spellchecker for Firefox, and would you care to share!.

Would mention that I have been trying to download and install SpellBound, but I keep getting an error message saying that it cannot install to the latest version of Firefox.

Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> General

In Firefox, go to "Tools" then "Add-Ons">>"Find Updates" there you should find the spell checker

You shouldn't need spellbound on the new version of Firefox. Try right clicking the field you want to spellcheck and select languages and add dictionary then you can add the English British dictionary from there.

Yup - Octal is correct - it's already in version2 and up - and works just fine on any text you enter.

Thanks everyone, I have found the spell checker, but doe's it have an automatic word correction procedure like IESpell, that I have missed?.

No it doesn't, but it puts a red squiggly line under the misspelt word and if you right click it will give you a list of words to choose from to replace it, it just a different way of working.

All working okay.Thanks again everyone. Will tick as resolved.
