    1: Auto correction.
    2: Text highlighting (for text wrapped into )

    Auto-correction, meaning if you misspell a word, it will be corrected for you?
    To me this sounds like a bad idea.
    Certain words like "dvd" and "cd" will be auto-corrected to ???.
    Where I don't want that corrected.

    Not sure what you mean by "text highlighting".

    When typing my messages on these boards i automatically have a spell checker, i think it either came with the new firefox or its an extention i downloaded a long time ago.
    It doesnt auto correct but it does underline incorrect spelling and when you right click it offers the correct spelling.

    So i see no need for a spell checker.

    Yes KDEs browser (konqueror) underlines "incorrect" words, but I am a firefox user.

    About second suggestion:
    Ha, its stupid. So just get lost.

    Yes, it's the latest Firefox that automatically underlines misspelled words. No extension is needed.

    Yeah the latest version of FF is too good with a lot of add-ons which you can install and I found some of them to be really helpful for daily surfing.
