    Hi!, Frogs Hair,

    Quick Solution: Right-Click on a Firefox Edit window and press 'L', select the language you want.

    I had the same in 13.04, and it did not respond to selecting a language in Edit/Preferences, as it did in 12.10.

    I checked in 'Edit>Preferences' that the correct language was set. and spell checking set in the Advanced Tab>Browser, Cancelled them and re-ran Fire-fox, and also restarted, but the Spell-checker was still not working. I then noticed that there was an entry for 'Check Spelling' and 'Languages >' in the Right-Click drop-down menu.

    The first, 'Check Spelling' was already ticked, but no language was marked as active.

    Having reset in 'Edit>Preferences, I clicked on the English UK entry, and - Presto! - Spell-Checking immediately active..

    it survived a cold power-off reboot, and also logging out and back to a different desktop but not to a different account.

    Chao!, bogan.

    Thanks Choa,

    I have already tried and checked those settings and I am still using the work around . Right click while hovering over a word > selecting the U.S English from the context menu which starts the spell check. I have to start the spell check on my first post and it works until I log out. I deleted the entire .mozilla and no change with the new profile.

    Here's one I haven't seen yet:
    Did my updates today and now right click no longer works in Firefox. Drop-down menus are also not functioning properly. I can use the arrow keys to go through the options, but the menus will not drop down for me.

    I am getting frequent freezing of Firefox 21. It seems to happen when ther is a Flash video on screen and lasts for a minute or two. I noticed the last update updated Flash.

    Question Re: Firefox +1 Mega Thread

    Hi all.
    Running Firefox 14.0.1 and happy enough with it, do not feel need to upgrade as my poor skills may screw-up something in the process.

    Question : What is that now empty space line where the cursor is; and how do I delete it ?

    Once something weird/suspicious/stubborn appeared creating that line there and I deleted its icon/text. But the whole blank line is still there.

    Try clicking on View in Menu, and unchecking Toolbars you don't need. I would suggest you keep the menu and navigation toolbars
