    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!

    Have you install en_US Spell checking dictionary extension?

    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?

    Here's a link to the United States English Dictionary:

    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.
