why is that? weird. speeeel [sic] checker in firefox should show up with a red underline when i'm typing input and misspell something. this is just a <textarea> so i don't see why it should be disabled. anything you guys can do to fix it?
Browser spell checkers work in plain text fields. The commnt box is a rich text app ergo the browser on board spell check doesnt work. It will work if you switch the edit box from rt to html; for example. Its ashame; i prefer the simple browser spell check oer the clunky rich text ver.
Swapping to the non-rich editor unfortunetly breaks line breaks in content 😞
It is also not accurate to say Firefox can't spell check rich editors - I use TinyMCE on my own site, and because I've not *hijacked the right click menu* I can choose 'spellcheck' and it works fine.
just a note on this, since switching to the html editor as default, the firefox spell checker works great. i'm staying here. it's warm and cozy. 🙂 thanks again curt!
You mean you are using the one with out the tool bar ? carefull, it eats line breaks for no good reason.

yea, i see that, if i have more than 1 paragraph of text, it's easy enough to add returns with a quick switch back and forth (as phos said in another thread) between this cool clean text based html view and the bloated sack of protoplasm rich text view... 😉
thanks for the heads up though!
easy also to hold down the left shift key and do a couple quick circles around with your right index finger to type a pair of tags... <P><P>

Is that a magic spell?
Errrmmmmm ... that's not a pair. That's two opening tags.
that's not a pair. That's two opening tags.
there. fixed that for ya. 🙂
hmm... why don't i have any points to give out in this thread... it's not answered or anything, at least i don't see a star on it... i wanted to give curt a couple more points for putting me onto the html default editor. 😞
