Missing Spellcheck? September 18, 2006 2:40 AM   Subscribe

The spellcheck button has disappeared for me, in both the blue and the green. And the spellcheck on MeTa posts isn't working also.

If you use Firefox, might I suggest Spellbound?

It was only released Friday, I'd bet an update is forth coming.

There is a link to the development version ( of Spellbound at the bottom of this page. The released version has not worked in a year, but for some reason the developer does not seem interested in updating it or in making the development version easy to find. Firefox 2.0 will have built-in spellchecking so it will be a moot point pretty soon.

Don't you get spellcheck when you right-click in the text entry box?

I use the Google toolbar in Firefox, one of the features is spell check for dialogue entry. Works great.

Thanks for the update and info. One day I'll have to pull my finger out and make the change to Firefox.
