Or go to FF forum for answer.
why go to ff forum when i can ask here .

2 Reasons:

a. I always go to manufactures sight for answers. You have box checked for spelling and it still doesn't why not?

b. I haven't had my morning share of caffeine yet to deal with you yet!

Boobah the FEBE extension will also back up your profile, I use it because every time there is a new java add on or FF update I end up with multiple versions and it takes me about 2 mins to reinstall FF.

IE 9 and Spell Check
Can anyone please explain to me why IE9 does not have a native spell-check capability? All other browsers seem to have it. Is there a technical reason that prevents IE from having this? Has MS ever explained why spell-check is not included as a feature of IE (especially in 9 Beta and RC)? Thanks
