  • Any chance getting this signed off before firefox 46?
    I've been ussing it for years with no problems.
    I had to change the code a little to get it to work in the latest versions.But firefox 46 will kill it.

  • Incompatible with FF 11.0
  • It sucks it has problems with many versions of FF. How to install it on FF 4? I don't want newer versions of browsers, they look like shit. Spellbound worked with FF 3.5.4 so why doesn't it work with FF 4? How to get version for FF 4?
  • After using this for a while, I've had to edit my review and lower my rating from 4 to 3 stars.

    Why? I was disappointed to find it didn't work in Yahoo Mail, where I planned to use it most.

    Also, it's annoying that its window is anchored to FF's upper left corner rather than being movable. I mean, this isn't 1993.

    And as I mentioned before, when you install SpellBound a dialog box appears asking if you want to change your Home page to one where SB's developer apparently has a financial tie-in. That's not spyware, you have a choice—but it is tacky, something you don't expect FF add-ons to do.

    But the real deal-breaker for me was that I realized FF's built-in spell-checker DOES let you save words. Duh! How'd I miss that? That's really the only reason I was looking for a third-party checker.

    I'm sure this developer meant well, but this add-on seems unnecessary now.
  • @SteveWeblin - you linked to the bbCode file instead lol

    @Jundle - when are you planning on updating this? Or is it free domain again?
  • Add me. Please update this for FF5.
  • Yes, please update this app for FF4 and above, I used it all the time and now I can't. :(
  • Can you please update this app I am lost without it.
  • pleeeeeeeeeeaasseeee can you update this app
  • If Spellbound isn't going to be compatible with FF 4 then I'm sticking with FF 3.6. That's how good this add-on is.
  • I went back to firefox 3.6.16 after I found I really did'nt like it ... tryed to down load spell check again,, its not compatable with the 3.6.16 version.. please update its a great addon
  • This program has been a God-Send.

    I use Auctiva and got tired of using their superiorly inferior spell checker. I spent a full half of my life waiting for it to load - and I couldn't add words that I use all the time. It promotes its product for eBay sellers and it doesn't even recognize the word eBay for God's Sake! That said - I love Auctiva and will continue to use them - but SpellBound has made me curse less during the day when trying to check my spelling in the description box.

    Since Auctiva didn't seem to think spell checking is a priority I went looking for another option.

    This one is not perfect but it gets the job done quickly and allows me to add words that I use often.

    I tried to download Mozilla 4.0 Beta and couldn't use SpellBound with it - and none of the other offerings did what I needed and so I un-installed 4.0 and returned to the older version of Mozilla - all so I could re-install SpellBound.

    The only problem I encounter is that once SpellBound is in check mode I can't scroll up and down on the text that I am checking. Sometimes a word comes up that I have no idea what I was trying to type because I've mis-hit my keys so badly that the word doesn't make any sense. I am not allowed to scroll the text on either the original copy - or in the SpellBound check box to try to remember what I was trying to write - and so I have to just get to the end of the copy and close the box so I can go back and read my original copy.

    I don't have to wait for SpellBound to load. I click the ABC Icon and I get immediate service. Quick and Smooth.

    Aside from that I have no complaints. I just wish you could get together with Auctiva so that they could have a Real Spell checker.

    I have been using SpellBound for months and have never had a problem with mal-ware, or with home pages being changed - or even a hint that anything like that was happening behind the curtain.
  • Just as REL_Dude said. First thing this add-on did was to try to take over my homepage!

    Mozilla must look into this ASAP!
  • Popups and ads!
    The first thing it did upon install was try to hijack my home page and search engine!
    DO NOT INSTALL!!!
    Mozilla should really take this down...
  • it works fine for me
  • Can't see why the rating is so low. It works fine for me. Simple and effective. And no malware. Thankyou.
  • This is pure crap.......Don't install this junk..... Doesn't Mozilla even look at this stuff before they post it to their users?
  • Been using this add-on religiously for months now and extremely happy with it. Excellent tool for a so-so speller like me :) Thank you!
  • Hey Terminate Malware we got it the first time OK
