Fail!@*^%@$ Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Simply doesn't work. I right click and/or click the icon in the bottom righ taskbar and it does........NOTHING. Please don't complain if my spelling in this review is not accurate!

Firefox 7

PS - Why doesn't Firefox's built in spellchecker work for me either?!?!?!!?!?!?!

Edit Box Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This really needs the ability to check text inside the edit box.

I don't see why the dictionary can't be chosen from the
meta http-equiv="Content-Language"

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Please let us have this for Firefox 4, I have downloaded another which can be used but it will not allow you to add words to dictionary and also seems only to like English US and not British!

Loved using this add-on. Wish that there was a updated version for Firefox 4.

Nice work done Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The spell checker seems to be working fine and i love to use it. However for your information there is a spell mistake in tool tip of the spell check icon present at footer of browser. Here web page is misspelled as 'webapge'. Expecting more for your next release.

I really like the idea behind this as an add-on but I'm not sure whether I'll keep it. If I could have it permanently on for my one website, I think it would be a little better.

The second best thing out there is this bookmarklet:
but it makes the page editable, which is annoying.

Simply not working Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Clicking on icon does nothing, on this web-page or others. Same with contextual menu item - no response. In Add On Manager, Options is unavailable. Basically, it doesn't work at all for me, on Firefox 3.6.13.

Wait... I found the Preferences menu, and fixed the problem. No dictionary was chosen, as it is set to select en-US by default, and I do not have the US dictionary installed at all. I selected my dictionary, and it works fine now. I had also made the changes to about:config mentioned below, but that alone did not fix the problem. Anyway, it works now.

Does the job except it only uses the current built in dictionary. It will ignore any words you may have added to your personal dictionary file (persdict.dat). Hopefully this will be fixed for the next release. (Until this is fixed - the tool is only moderately useful, depending on how good your main dictionary is)

Simple and useful. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Simple and does the job.

Useful well when writing and editing web pages. Had a slight glitch when upgrading FireFox to 3.6.10 which stopped it working. Opening about:config and Changing extensions.gSpellChecker.firstRun to true, extensions.gSpellChecker.version to 1.3.0 and restarting FireFox fixed the problem.I like the spelling error in the status bar message; it's a reminder of how easy it is to miss typos. There's one on the addon's home page too, which you can use to test it on. I'm not sure whether that is a bug of a feature either.

@pinion42 - who didn't think it useful - might want to check the spelling in his review using it:-)

Typo in ALT Tag, Really? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I like the ease of use of this spell checker but A: we should be able to update the dictionary and B: the Icon's ALT Tag needs to be spell checked: "Click here to check the webapge for spelling mistakes"

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works great with 3.6
Provides both an icon and a context menu item.
Exactly what I was looking for and was immediately useful.

When you install this you can add a small icon at the bottom of your browser to click, this will check the whole page for spelling mistakes. As you hover over it it reads:

"Click here to check the webapge for spelling mistakes"

Seriously? now as funny as that is it makes this add on redundent and a complete waste of time.
The 1 star is for the laugh it gave me.

Great for earlier versions Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wonderful add-on. What a pity it doesn't work on FF 3.6.8 Options cannot be set, dictionary cannot be changed

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this extension and I was so pissed when FF updated to 3.6 automatically. I had to look for a way to get it to work or switch back to FF 3.5. I found a way and it works great! I think I love you...but I am not sure. If we were stuck on an island together I would be your Wilson any day.

Love it Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Is support for 3.6.x + anticipated soon, or at all?

Spell Checker not finding my persdict.dat file Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Spell Checker does not seem to be finding my persdict.dat file, which I understood that it used to check for any words which I had added to my firefox personal dictionary. My persdict.dat file is located in the normal / default place, so it shouldn't be hard for Spell Checker to find it. (In WinXP, that's: C:\Documents and Settings\[User Name]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default\persdict.dat ). Anyone know why it is not using that file? Is it supposed to be? If not, I'd suggest that it be made to do so if possible.

This is one of the best tools made for Firefox, I did not updated my firefox until get it working on 3.6 I hope the add-on continue to have updates.
