Quick Tip: Spell Check Firefox Text Input Fields [May. 15th, 2009|06:25 am]

We've all seen misspelled article titles (especially on Digg.com) Doesn't Firefox have built-in spell checking?

The reason why article titles and search terms aren't included in the spell checker is because Firefox only enables the spell checking on textarea fields, not text input fields. Lucky there's a quick fix for this.

Just double-click on the item in the list and change the value to 2, as shown. No restart needed.

No more typos in search terms!
