Firefox spellcheck no longer works by default

Description

Prior to version 2.4.2 (tested in 2.3.2), Firefox 2.0.0.3's built-in spellcheck for textareas worked by default, highlighting misspelt words automatically. Now one must right-click and tick "Spell-check this field" each and every time FCKeditor is started to get this useful functionality.

  • Keywords Confirmed added; firefox spellcheck removed
  • Milestone set to FCKeditor 2.4.3

There were many users complaining that the Firefox spell checker was not displaying the substitutions in the context menu, as it is replaced by FCKeditor's one. So, we have decided to disable Firefox's spell checker.

We can make it configurable for the next version, so one can decide to enable it (I like it too).

Sounds good. Is there a way to detect if Firefox's Javascript settings are to block disabled/replaced context menus? If so, you could make it so you only turn off the Firefox spell-check in the event that the FCKeditor replacement context menu was able to be used. Then end users will automatically get the best functionality for their chosen browser preferences.

I'm not sure we are able to read user settings... probably not. So, I think it is quite difficult to detect it beforehand.

I've just introduced two related new features with [343].
