    Firefox Spelling Suggestions are absent


    Hello there,

    Not sure, if it's a "feature" of the linux version of firefox, or a bug in my case, but Firefox does check the spelling for me, but does not give any suggestions for the spelling (and I tried different dictionaries). Does anyone know what could be a remedy of the problem?

    Thank you!

    Sorry, not sure what do you mean. I don't think I installed any dictionary extension on Firefox. And, as I mentioned, firefox does check check the spellings. What is doesn't do, is giving me suggestions on the misspelled words.

    I have checked the available addons for firefox and didn't find any english US dictionaries. Could you please specify what did you mean?

    Thank you. But after the installation, with US english being chosen, nothing has changed. Still firefox checks the spelling, but doesn't suggest corrections...

    You can try following:
    in the adress bar enter
    about:config
    search the line: Layout.spellcheckDefault
    enter e number "2".
    restard the browser and check if something changed.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I had, in fact, Layout.spellcheckDefault =1 and changed it to 2. Unfortunately, it didn't help the problem - I still don't have any suggestions for the misspelled words...

    I have annother idea: When you are writing in a textbox did you try to press the right mouse klick? - There should come a line check orthography in this field.
