You're typing text into a form on a web page displayed using the Firefox browser. On some computers, the browser displays red lines under misspelled words. On other computers, it doesn't. Your workaround is simple, pasting every blankety-blank form entry into Microsoft Word, checking the spelling, correcting the spelling, then pasting back into Firefox. Got it? After a year of this, maybe more, you make a discovery. By right-clicking inside a form field on a web page, and clicking Check Spelling, you activate the missing feature. Firefox works like a charm, and you feel like a fool for not figuring this out earlier. Mr. Blogger does. Next step, figure out how to permanently enable this feature, for each web page visited...

Go to file—preferences—advanced tab—in there is a general tab—check the box “Check my spelling as I type”
