Thread: Firefox Spell

  1. #1
    Is there a Spell checker that works with Firefox? I have one for IE, but i think il use firefox almost exclusively if i can get a spell checker for it.

    I was able to get the spell checker extension working in firefox 0.9 by doing the following:

    * First, uninstall Firebird
    * Grab the stuff you want from my old profile (bookmarks, etc -- which is still in a Application Data folder labeled Phoenix if you are upgrading from 0.8), and then delete the profile
    * Download firefox 0.9 zipfile not the installer. I've heard that some people have had problems getting this extension working with the installer version
    * Unzip and place the firefox files from where you plan on running firefox from. Your install should have the composer.xpt file in the components directory.
    * Start firefox
    * Install spellcheck.xpi from: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/moz...c3/windows-xpi/
    * Shut down and restart firefox
    * Install spellcheckerfe0_4_0.xpi from: http://cgi29.plala.or.jp/~mozzarel/addon/f...d/spellchecker/
    * Shut down and restart firefox
    * Download your dictionary of choice from: http://downloads.mozdev.org/dictionaries/
    * Shut down, restart firefox, and go spell check something
    this is from another person, i'm not taking credit for it, but you should look into it.

    spell-en-US.xpi <----english dictionary (i doubt any of us need a bulgarian one) so make sure you pick this one. Hope it works out for ya man.

    ps, it&#39;s not working for me, and the zip version is also ...not working, so I just reinstalled it, (the spell checker comes up but does nothing, i&#39;m a human spellchecker anyways) .

    Just look for spell checker software http://www.google.com/search?q=spell+check...=utf-8&oe=utf-8
    for example "tiny spell" http://www.megspace.com/computers/tinyspell/
    they will check what you spell.
