Windows 7: Internet Explorer 9 Beta (64-bit) Spell Checker

Internet Explorer 9 Beta (64-bit) Spell Checker

Hello -

Sorry if this is in the wrong section or if this browser is currently discussed in another thread. If so, could someone move this for me?

I just downloaded the newest version of Internet Explorer 9 Beta 64-bit. However, I'm a bit disappointed that I didn't find a spellchecker embedded into their new browser. I'm used to iespell in the 32-bit browser, but it does not load in the 64-bit browser.

I like to use the spell checker at various times as I post on forums and other places and would like to have something "watching my back" as I type.

Any suggestions? What other little add-ons are available for this browser?

Are you sure it is not under options or something?

I've looked but I can't seem to find it. I now use 64-bit browsers as Adobe finally added support for 64-bit as stated in another thread. However, my spell checker no longer works.

Minefield (Firefox x64) has a built in spell checker, but I keep getting this error every time I load Minefield:

Minefield seems to randomly crash for no apparent reason. I haven't found the cause yet. I'd use Minefield for the spell checker, but it wants to crash, and I want to use a 64-bit browser now that Adobe supports 64-bit.

As most of the I.E. add-ons are still 32 bit, it's usually better to use the 32 bit I.E. Even in Win 7 64 bit systems, the default I.E. is the 32 bit version.

Windows 7 x64 does not allow me to set IE 9 beta x64 as the default browser. However, I can set Minefield (Firefox x64) as the default browser. Odd.

Also, on the Mozilla forum I found the answer to the error I was receiving above:

If it is not that one, try disabling other extensions until you find the culprit.

I removed the Ask.com toolbar (didn't want it anyway) and the error went away.

I am running an older x64 build of Firefox (Namoroka, v. 3.6.3) without any problems at all. Granted, I use no add-ons and my only plug-in is Java x64. No flash, thank you very much. There are no problems with the spell-checker whatsoever. IE8 x64 also runs well, but I'm just used to Firefox.

Now, what you are talking about are beta versions, I would not expect them to be trouble-free anyway, so if you are keen on IE, I would suggest IE8 x64.

As far as add-ons, is there really something in any of these browsers that you are really missing, or you are just curious about what else can be done with them?

The beta versions run fine, honestly. I fixed my Minefield (Firefox x64 build) error using what I posted above.

Minefield does come with its own built in spell checker like the 32 bit Firefox does. I was wondering if there was such a thing for IE 8 64-bit or IE 9 Beta 64-bit. And yes, I would like to know what can be done with the browsers. I already like the added "search" built within the address bar.

As far as I know IE does not have a built-in spell checker tool. There are add-ons available to fill the void, for example ieSpell (which is free). However, I do not use it myself and thus can't say whether it will work with the 64-bit version of IE, the website does not say anything about it, at least nothing that I could see in a minute.

IeSpell didn't work for me in IE 9 x64. I can't remember what the error message was though, sorry.
