My spellchecking in Firefox nightly hasn't worked for a long time. It's enabled in the settings but just doesn't work. Anyone know what settings to check in about:config?

I'm a home user, I am the IT Dept LOL. Seems its blocking on my IP for some reason..... Never had that before.

EDIT: Cleard cookie/cache no dice. Now getting server not found on Firefox and Edge, but IE works ? color me confused.

Thanks for the replies... Guess maybe my ISP is blocking that one site, still not working this morning even after rebooting system. I've flushed DNS and tried to get a renew on my IP, but seems something is not allowing me to release my current IP. AFAIK I'm not on a 'static' IP. Will have to try and call them later today when I get home from work.

Are you ready for deprecation of XUL & XBL & XPCOM extensions? Not?! Try Firefox ESR 52

which is still not fixed.
It will be fixed soon probably, as patches in dependent bugs are present and are under review.

Thanks, looking forward to it !

I emailed NWS this morning before going to work, and this afternoon I got a reply that they were aware of an internal issue and were looking into it.

Just got home and its working now as it should, no blocking.

In case you're impatient ... ... es/build1/

It doesn't seem to have broken anything in my profile.
