I have heard many folks do not like the inline spellcheck feature with Firefox 2 (personally I cain’t use Firefox without it). Many people like the ‘classic’ Spellbound which would allow you to check spelling when you wanted to in a separate window. While it may be possible (with a lot of work-arounds) to get the ‘classic’ Spellbound to work with Firefox 2, there is a simpler solution…Spellbound-II, a resurrection of sorts of the classic Spellbound 0.7.3 extension. This is from the same developer who created the new ChromEdit Plus
- Extension only supports the en-US dictionary
- Remove ALL prior version of SpellBound BEFORE installing
- Extension removes ‘Spell check this field’ and replaces with ‘Check Spelling’ option
- You can still have the functionality of the inline spellcheck by making a tweak in about:config. The extension may change the value for layout.spellcheckDefault to 0. Changing this value to 2 will restore the inline spellcheck. However as stated in #3 it will change the context menu.
