Last week I ran a tip on the built-in spell-check function in Mozilla Firefox. After, I received a few e-mails wondering why the function doesn’t work everywhere, so today I’m going to show you a program that will extend Firefox’s spell-check function.
It’s called Spellbound.
My favorite feature of Spellbound is that it spell checks in form fields, so if you’re entering text in something like a comment box or other type of information field, Spellbound will let you know.
You can also customize the way Spellbound bring misspellings to your attention by changing the color or boldness of the offending word.
To download Spellbound for Firefox, go to Tools>Add ons and select the “Get Add-ons” tab at the top.
Now click “Browse All Add-ons”. This will automatically take you to the Mozilla Add-ons site. Type Spellbound in the search box and click the green arrow.
Now all you have to do is click the “Add to Firefox” button, follow the on-screen prompts and you’re good to go!
