#1119 closed enhancement (fixed)

[ContextMenu] optionally switch of FIrefox Spell check

Firefox uses its built-in spell checker in design mode. While this is normally a nice feature, it's misleading with the ContextMenu? plugin enabled; right-clicking on the word brings up Xinha's context menu, which does not list spelling suggestions.

My best guess is that Xinha should turn off Firefox's spell check, at least when context menu plugins are enabled. I've been able to do this inline in my own app, but it'd be nice to have it included in the source.

Mozilla talks about it here:

could this be made optional, please? I, for example, love this inline spellcheck, and even though I can't see spelling suggestions, I at least know that the checker doesn't like the word. Red dotted underline helps a lot to find stupid mistakes, such as missing or mixed letters.
