spell checker quit in firefox (solved)
« on: June 07, 2017, 06:42:56 am »
Hi, my spell checker seems to have quit in firefox.   Any idea how I can re-enable it?   I went into preferences, advanced settings and enabled it.
 
When I run it from a terminal it shows:

Code: [Select]
console.error:
  Message: TypeError: can't access dead object
  Stack:
    result_method_for_url@resource://gre/modules/commonjs/toolkit/loader.js -> resource://jid1-qofqdk4qzufgwq-at-jetpack/lib/process-script.js:25:1

Why are you on FF 50 ?

I recently ran into a similar issue where the spell check didn't work at all, so perhaps I can help.  C=

Click on the FireFox settings, then add-ons.  When the about:addons page comes up, there should be a section called "dictionaries" listed on the left-hand side.  If it isn't there,  you will need to install one.  I live in the United States, so I installed this dictionary, which worked for me: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/united-states-english-spellche/  If you live in the UK or elsewhere that speaks English, you will need to install the appropriate dictionary. You can find one here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/language-tools/  If this doesn't work, someone who's more knowledgeable should be able to help you.  You can also browse through this search to see if you can find a solution: https://www.startpage.com/do/dsearch?query=spell+check+doesn%27t+work+firefox&cat=web&pl=opensearch&language=english
