Firefox by default spell checks text fields, it has the built in ability to spell check single line fields(search bars ect) but that is disabled by default.

To activate the ability of firefox to spell check single line fields, do the following:

  • Bring up your about:config page. You can do this by typing “about:config” in your address bar and clicking on “I’ll be careful, I promise” button
  • In the “Filter” field type layout.spellcheckDefault.
  • As you can see, the integer value is 1. Double-click on it, then enter 2 as its new value.
  • Click OK.

    I prefer using free spell check online. It is updated regulary with new word.

  • if you need not only spell checker, but also grammar and thesaurus I can advice on using online spell checkers like this one: http://www.spellchecker.net/spellcheck/
    You still need to copy and paste text but it is better then nothing 🙂
