#8021: Firefox spell checker not working with RTE, again
 Reporter:  Otto42   |       Owner:  anonymous
     Type:  defect   |      Status:  new      
 Priority:  normal   |   Milestone:  2.7      
Component:  TinyMCE  |     Version:  2.7      
 Severity:  normal   |    Keywords:           
 Use Visual Editor.
 Enter bad spelling. I use "This is a hgihd test."
 Note that hgihd is not underlined in Firefox 3.0.3.
 Right click field, turn off spell checking.
 Right click field, turn it on again. Word will become underlined.

 This is basically the same problem as #3856. The solution there was to
 force gecko_spellcheck to true. I checked the code, and that solution is
 still in there, so somewhere, a change to the TinyMCE code must be
 disabling this. I notice some code in the TinyMCE advanced theme that has
 comments along these lines, but I am not familiar enough with TinyMCE to
 work out what that does.
