Default Spell check when using websites

Is anyone else using Firefox and having problems with the spell checker not working within websites.
It works and sugests alternative words when typing in on Google search but is that Google doing that.
The spell check is activated in the "general" settings.

thanks
Mike

After going to this page https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/fir...anguage-tools/ and installing English language tools and a dictionary I now have a spell checker again.
It is odd because Firefox is supposed to have built in spell check.

Thanks a lot for that, I've just installed the 'British English Dictionary' and it works fine, the language pack was already in.

I added the language pack and British dictionary years ago, I think they were addons then.
