firefoxOne of the best features in Mozilla Firefox is its ability to spell check whatever you write in the browser. This is pretty useful if you are before your Gmail  or Google Mail and you have to write an e-mail or if you have to leave a comment in a blog or if you have to send a feedback to some Internet based company. To see if the spell checking feature works properly just start typing. As soon as you make a mistake Firefox will underline the wrong word with red dots, right-click on the word itself  to enable a context menu containing a series of words that maybe you meant to write. But what happen when such a nice feature doesn’t want to work?

Nothing to worry about. In most cases it is sufficient to follow these easy tricks to enable the spell checking.

  1. Right-click on any text field. A text field is the part of a web-page containing a blank empty box which lets you write down comments, emails, feedback etc.
  2. A context menu should appear. Click Add Dictionaries.
  3. At this point you should be redirected to the page which lets you download dictionaries for your Firefox. (Here is the direct link: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/browse/type:3)
  4. Download the proper dictionary and voila!
  5. Also, make sure  the spell checking option is enabled in your Firefox to do that click Tool in the Firefox toolbar.
  6. Click Option.
  7. Click Advanced. Under Browsing options tick Check my spelling as I type.
