For those of you who use Firefox, I’m sure you’re familiar with it’s inline spell checking feature. WordPress has it’s spell check option but I never use it because of Firefox’s automatic inline spell checking. It helps me when I write or proofread my drafts. It makes it easier and faster because it immediately underlines a misspelled word with a red line.
However, some Firefox users are having problems with the inline spell checking function not working with the new editor in WordPress 2.1. I found out that this problem is caused by one of the default settings of the version of TinyMCE that is being used by WordPress.
To fix this problem and enable the Firefox spell check in WordPress 2.1, you can download the plugin called FFSpell. It turns the Firefox automatic spell checker back on in TinyMCE. It’s easy to install because it doesn’t need any configuration. Just upload the file into the plugin directory and activate it from the Plugins panel and you’re good to go!
