    On 02-04-2006 03:16 CET, com composed this enchanting
    statement: 
    The "spell-as-you-type functionality for text fields" is on the list for
    the next update (release 2.0).

    Refer to <http://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox2/> for this and other possible
    enhancements.

    Spellbound is what you want. The development version works with the current
    version of Firefox and is very stable. It does spell as you type too. AFAIK,
    only available at :-

    Evidently not:

    "Why doesn't inline spell-checking work directly inside of a
    form?
    Why do I have to launch a spellchecker interface?

    This is not a simple thing to accomplish since textarea and input
    elements do not lend themselves to allowing text decoration and
    the existing spellchecker interfaces are written to be used with
    an editor element. The proper way to accomplish this will involve
    changes to the core of Mozilla and the patch for Bug ID 58612
    does exactly that. When this bug is fixed then Mozilla will
    provide inline spellchecking."

    Nor did I find the function in about:config. But I did find a way
    to turn modality off, which I am testing.

    The above quote doesn't relate to the dev version, only the standard version
    that is quoted at the top of the page. It works fine here, unless we are
    talking about two different functions.

    I see. I missed the reference to the development version. I
    really need to take that for a spin, now!

    I installed this

    http://exchangecode.com/spellbound/downloads/spellbound-dev_20060108.xpi


    and it doesn't do anything when I type a mispelled word. Am I suppose
    to configure it in some way or click something. there's nothing on my
    right-click menu.

    Mine works, but I disabled the standard SpellBound also. You
    might also go into SB's options, via the extensions organizer, to
    enable inline checking - though mine was already set to go.

    I see no way of seeing spelling suggestions without invoking SB's
    dialog, but that's probably by design.

    Yes, I think you need to remove the standard spellbound first. There are two
    test areas on the page for the standard SB that you quoted initially,
     

    I used those to check the setting up and functioning.
