loganjames: All browsers bar ie have spell check as far as I'm aware. And if your using ie you've probably got bigger issues than your spelling


No it's your...
you're = you are Laughing 

It should be "And if you're using ie"

"You're" verb, "your" possessive. The use is clearly a verb.



It seems we were refering to different parts of the same sentence. My appoligies eXDee Embarassed. I am using my new A500 iconia tab which does NOT have spell check... Or I havn't found it yet.

You just have to learn to live with zbelling mesdakes because they happen.

I just really hate it when you're reading a sentence someone wrote but it doesn't finish as you octopus.

It looks like I'm using an adblocker. I should consider whitelisting Geekzone in my adblocker or a subscription. The Quick Reply box will appear for me when Geekzone is whitelisted. Hooray for me! If I want to reply to this topic I should click on Compose Reply.

gzt: Firefox does have spell check. Incorrect words are underlined in red. Right click the word and it will show you a list of correct spellings. Try it.

Or is it not working for some reason?


It's a Firefox extension the the user needs to add, it's not installed by default.
I use the British English Dictionary extension myself.
Either use the Add-ons Manager in Fx to search for one or take a look at
I'm sure there will be an American one too if that's preferred.

thanks thats what i wanted to hearSmile
