Response to: It's work

Thanks for your help about where to turn on Spell Check :)

Here's the test... if you look at the source code, it appears that spell check does work in a "text area," field, but does not work in a "text input" box.

So if you're only testing this in a text area, it appears to be OK...

But, here's the rub. And this is the weirdest thing. When I cleared my Autofill list as mentioned by jfew, the spelling started working in the text area fields (which had previously stopped working).

As for bug reports. Yes I file them. But I like to make sure that it's really a bug and not operator error first.

    To add more craziness to this topic, I've got the text input fields working now after clearing out the "Other forms" cache in Autofill.

    Could this really be the connection? We just tested it on another computer here at O'Reilly, that also had the Autofill cache cleared, and got the same result. Spell check started working in the text boxes.

    Too weird to be true?
