Geek Tip: This week's tip comes from Firefox Facts - By default Firefox does not spell check all text areas, only the larger fields. As it turns out, there's a way to change that! Here's how it's done:
In your about:config (type about:config in the address bar to access) search for this string: layout.spellcheckDefault Change the value from 1 to 2 to get spell checking for all text fields and not just the big text area boxes.
