Inline text box spell checking in Firefox

Firefox 2 added spell checking in text areas, but I just found a little tweak that extends spell checking to inline text boxes. Big help for keeping blog titles and such spelled correctly. Here’s how:

  1. Type about:config in the address bar, hit enter
  2. Filter on spellcheckDefault
  3. Double click the entry and change the value to 2

Also if you haven’t upgraded to Firefox 3 go grab it right now. Lots of memory leaks have been fixed and overall things are much more responsive.
