Now unfortunately I’m actually (or should i say use to be until now) a crap seller and have been a “victim” of sounding like a dumb idiot online for a very long time.
That was until i remembered something which i use to use (well it was automatic) and then completely forgot about when i updated firefox and the Firefox spell checker just didn’t work anymore.
So while it’s fresh in my mind i did some research, re-enabled it and then came here to tell you how to do it too!
How To Enable The Firefox Spell Checker…
Let’s take a look….
Type about:configin address bar and press enter.
Now in the filter field, type the following value- layout.spellcheckDefault
The default value of this parameter is 1. Double click on this parameter and change the value to 2.
Close config file and now open any page which has a text box and check for wrong spelling (no restart required).
Note: In case the spell check is still not enabled, right click on the text box and enable spell check.
Still not working? visit the firefox official help page!
There you have it, how to turn yourself from a dumb idiot who can’t spell at all into an educated Harvard PHD degree in spelling in 5 minutes ha ha!
No but on a more serious note people do form a picture of the person you are by the words you write and spelling things correctly just makes sure that that image of who you are is higher or un-tainted by your spelling.
Sounds stupid i know but it’s true and I’m sure you remember a few times you have seen people who’s spelling is so atrocious that you just think to yourself “what an idiot”!
So STOP being an Idiot and let me know if this works for you below
