Firefox Tip: Get Spell Checking on All Form Fields

This tip is so useful that I just had to share it with my fellow Firefox addicts.

We all love Firefox's built-in spell checking feature, but we're all annoyed that it only works on multi-line text boxes, right?

If you want spell checking to work everywhere like I do, then today's your lucky day.

  1. type this in the browser address bar “about:config”
  2. look for “layout.spellcheckDefault”
  3. change the value to “2″
  4. restart firefox

Thanks for posting this great tip, Matt ... now I've got Firefox 3 running almost as well as Safari. ;-)
