Yes. But why is MPC comments the only text boxes I've come across that do not automatically show misspelled words in FF? No other place requires me to right-click and select Check Spelling, it's just automatic, including on this forum. But not MPC comments. Any idea why?

It's because one of the 35 external javascript files MPC uses (not including JS loaded by ads) is TinyMCE which by default, disables spellcheck. MPC doesn't use any configuration for TinyMCE, it uses it as it is...

Seems to work just fine for me. Every text box I go to use, either here or on the outside in the article comments, it works just fine.

And if you know how to spell, you don't need spell check. If you don't know how to spell, go back to school and learn how.

Just jerking your chain. 8)

The spell check works for me. (on those rare occasional oops by me)

I never said that it's not working, but that it's disabled by default, which require right click to manually enable it. This only applied to comments form for articles, not on this forum.
If it's always enabled for you, then perhaps maybe you can share what OS, browser do you use?

I'm on W7 with Firefox.

Looking at TinyMCE code, I see that it's specifically disables Geco SpellCheck (can't remember exact name) unless specified otherwise.

I did have to enable it once, but that's not a constant thing. Once enabled, it stays that way even if I shut down FF and reopen it. Now occasionally, I will get half way through a post and it will stop working. Then I turn it off - back on and it works fine from there on.

I'm using the latest FF and W7 64-bit Ultimate with all current updates.

lol apparently the self proclaimed master of the internet (Chum) doesnt know the difference between a comments form and a forum.

Yes this problem is very old and very annoying.
