Firefox 10.0.1 No spell check
I'm having a problem here and I cannot solve it. Firefox no longer spell checks for me. I have made sure all my settings are enabled.
1. Edit>Options >Spell check enabled
2. Right click on reply to thread screen, check my spelling>Enabled
3. About:Config set layout.spellcheckDefault to 2 instead of one, which worked for one day and then stopped. I checked it again and it's still set to 2.
4. Installed word dictionary: Aspell. No luck
5. Installed Firefox spell checker, no help there.
Any other suggestions?
EDIT: I'm using Gentoo and KDE-4.8.0 if that helps.

Hey there, Mike.
I'm using FF 10.0.1 in Slackware, but I'm not seeing the options in the Edit menu that you describe. Not sure what would cause this, aside from me using IceWM instead of KDE.
But in about:config, I did a search for spellcheck.
Here's what I have:
extensions.spellcheck.inline.max-misspellings;500 layout.spellcheckDefault;1 services.sync.prefs.sync.layout.spellcheckDefault;true services.sync.prefs.sync.spellchecker.dictionary;true

Right, thanks for the reply and posting your results, mine is a bit different with all the addons and whatnot that I added trying to get it working. I think my next attempt will involve disabling all add-ons and stuff, see if that helps.

This is gonna sound stupid... but here it is.
I had the same thing happen with the system update that gave me FF 10.0.1.
I rebooted and it fixed itself.
So, in the Microsoft/Apple way of troubleshooting: Reboot and try again!

This issue has been solved. I had hunspell installed, which is what Firefox uses but I also needed hunspell-en installed. As soon as I installed that Firefox presented me with new options when right clicking on text fields.
Thanks for the suggestions everyone.
