I am writing in rich text box (gmail compose an email, or linuxforums, e.g.). In all the cases, it does work under Windows and under linux, as I wrote above, it only indicates a mistake, but gives no suggestions...
And if I understand the question correctly, I do press the right mouse button on the word which is misspelled to see if there are any suggestions. The only thing I have there though is "Check Spelling" being checked.
Seems to be only my problem... Probably I should reinstall firefox, if not linux , ah?

Probably not a Linux issue but a Firefox one.
Where did you install Firefox from? Try using your package manager to uninstall it and do a clean install.

It's installed by default by most distros, but this will make a difference (I think).
In college, our workstations are running Debian, and I frequently encounter strange errors like this.
Clearly I'm not the only one. Somebody wrote a script that reinstalls Firefox, and it fixes most problems, and even keeps my bookmarks.
This is a quick and easy check, and it doesn't hurt to try. I think that the dictionary database got lost somewhere, and this is the easiest way to fix it.

Well, If this problem isn't solved yet.
Just right click the box you are writing, and check "Check Spellings". (You must have US-English Spellcheckign Dictionary installed)
That would do.
This change was done in newer version of the extension, In older version it was default.

Thank you everyone! Was out of internet reach for a while, so answer only now.
As I wrote previously, "Check Spelling" is selected under the right click, and spelling is checked, but now suggestions are given.
The suggestion with the re-installation sounds like the only option at the moment. Hopefully that will do... I'll write on results.
