    You gotta love that site! My first search (or a misspelled word) gave me:

    Seriusly, does anyone else have trouble with the Firefox built in spell check NOT flagging misspelled words, and I don't mean those words it doesn't check like words with num3ers but words like "Seriusly."

    Firefox has a spell chequer? I musta turned it off when I was killing nags...um...suggestions. Whatever. (I don't like my computer trying to have a conversation with me.)

    To answer your question, No. I turned it off.

    Well, seriusly is flagged from by firefox browser. Actually, I have found many of my spelling misconceptions through firefox.

    Firefox spellchecker works fine for me most of the time.
    Just noticed it doesn't recognise Firefox as a word.

    No, seriusly, I left "Seriusly" in my post because Firefox did NOT flag it, and it isn't flagging the non-upper case version in this post either (it's getting the next capitalized one).

    Oops, not any more!

    (Just noticed if you disable then re-enable spell check it runs it all again and catches things it had been missing. Another classic PITA.)

    When I start typing spellcheck and the other services are the last thing on my mind.
    When I have story to tell the value of the story come first.You notice I don,t paste
    or any of that stuff.That Is good and bad,It can make you a Norman Rockwell of type set.

    I'm just the opposite, I care about spelling and grammar, and love my spellchecker. My Dad taught me a trick to writing well, maximum verbosity, then ruthless culling. If something doesn't say what you want it to say then out it goes.
