I have something like that working already. I miss correcting a few from time to time.

It's in Firefox/Tools/Options/Advanced/general tab, about mid way down, 'check spelling as I type'.

I have that one turned on as well.
ieSpell is nice to have a round in different Browsers.

Sometimes, I'm in too much of a hurry to answer. Since I hunt & peck typing, I am not always looking at the screen to see I hit the wrong letter. Thankfully, we have an 'Edit Post' button.

When I switched to a Mac last year the spell checker just started working on Safari. It must be the default because I didn't turn it on. I would be lost without it. Kenny, I am a hunt and peck sort of typist as well. I am getting faster though, since I am on here every day.

Never mind, I re-read Kenny's post and figured it out.:rolling:Brain fade I guess. I even remember seeing the red lines under the words while I was typing, but didn't see the icon.:wallbanging:

Brian, when you see the red line under a word, right click it. It will give you a list of possible words/spellings to chose from.
