I was checking "internet options", not the FF "tools" bar before, Butrflynet.
I missunderstood Cyclo's directions.
Apologies for any confusion I've caused.
Now that I have
checked FF "tools" .... yes, the "check my spelling as I type" box is ticked.
When you say "the spellchecker" what is it you are actually referring to?
I mean the spellcheck function that previuosly (up to a couple of days ago) worked automatically.
If a word was wrongly spelled, it would be underlined in red & a right click would supply the correct spelling to replace it.
Is this a stand-alone spell checker program or something that was bundled with some other software program?
Possibly it is a stand-alone. I'm not certain. The OE 2.1 Spellchecker
was an additional program (supplied to me by Microsoft) after I purchased the Microsoft Home & Student
a couple of years ago. Because there wasn't an English spellchecker in the program. A well-known flaw. )
Since the last Windows update, the spellchecker works only
in Outlook Express (emails) & not for any online sites, like A2K.
Sorry for the previous confusion.
Thank you, Butrflynet and Tico for your input.
