    Does spell check work in Firefox? I know it doesn't work on mine. The spell check works in IE 9 but I hate using that still can't get the back button to work.If it works for anyone else is the a control I don't have enabled or an add-on?

    Are you using the "BB code Editor" or "Rich Text Editor" on SMF?

    I've noticed on here the spell check only works in "Rich Text Editor"

    It's set to Rich Test editor. If a word is misspelled I get the red line under it but a right click will not correct.

    Oh OK, that could be a Firefox issue, I don't know, I don't use Firefox. I know there are quite a few people here that do use it so someone should be able to help.
     
  5. Look in your Firefox settings and see if spell check is enable.
    It should be working if it's enabled.

    Doesn't work for me. If I right click it just gives me the option to paste.

    Try switching to "BB Code Editor", I just tried it and I do get the red underline on misspelled words and right clicking does give suggestions to change. I just don't get the "Spell Check" icon on the toolbar.
    I have found "BB Code Editor" is a lot easier to use too. When you paste something it goes straight to the message and you don't get the pop up window where you have to paste again.
