    Spell checking do not work on Firefox


    Hi. Spell checking do not work on Firefox in the Win8 x64. I mean back when I was using Win XP (for 10 years), the spell checking worked in every browser. I am talking about that red underlining appearing when a word is misspelt. Been using Win8 x64 for two month now and didn't see that working on latest FF.

    yes it does spell check. for instance just try IE 10, message any one... and it will auto correct.if not,this might be that autocorrect is disabled. see this snap below. hope this helps.

    Hello Rhazor,

    Double check to make sure that at least Highlight misspelled words is turned on.
    Hope this helps,
