Is there a spell checker add-on available for the version of Firefox?

Installed British English Dictionary but I cannot get it to function.

If, for example, I highlight a word that I've typed into PCA and then click on "spell check this field" nothing happens.

Perhaps I did not install properly?

If the word is spelled incorrectly and the auto spell check is active, any misspelled words will be underlined in red. Simply right click the underlined word for a list of suggested alternatives, or the option to add to your dictionary.

The dictionary will underline any misspelled words after you tap the space bar.

Make sure you have selected "Languages" and ticked "English-British" or "English-United Kingdom", this can be found under "spell check this field" when you right click.

Try the American spelling of color it should underline it, right click on the word and you will see the optional spellings.

Many thanks for your replies.

Reinstalled the software and it now seems to be working OK but I notice that you have to check each line at a time as the red line will disappear if you continue with the message.

Cheers again.

I'm not sure what is going on with your installation as mine is quite happy to keep the underlinings over a multi line multi paragraph posting.
Not helpful I know, but there's not much else I can offer in this case, sorry.
