    Default spell check for browsers


    i usually use firefox.it was fine untill some days ago.all of a sudden
    the spell check went dead.i changed to opera and went through serched
    for spell check and found this link:

    'Spell-checking With Opera'
    (http://www.opera.com/browser/tutorials/spellcheck/)

    i installed as given but i could not find the spell check.
    should i be installing something else for the spell check??

    but I use 'GNU IceCat' (http://www.gnu.org/software/gnuzilla/) (a
    totally free browser based on Mozilla code) with spell check in
    English/Russian/Belarusian/Esperanto without any problem.

    Opera doesn't includes inline spell-checking like Firefox. You need a
    little Java-script for this.
    'OSpell - Your In-Line Spell Checker for Opera'
    (http://opera.gt500.org/ospell/). A simple how-to video is also included
    on the site.
    Good luck.

    For firefox maybe you need to update the spellchecker

    Yeah, I can confirm this. For me it was a bit annoying, and the
    build in check was far away from FFs inline spell checking, so I gave up
    with Opera.
    You are welcome!

    hey guys....i have just checked the settings for firefox.to enable the
    inline spell check should do as follows:
    go to about:config
    accept that you will be careful
    and enter "layout.spell" in the search and change its integer value to
    2 and restart the browser.
