Personally, I'm already pretty much satisfied with 2.0's implementation as it is, but hey, if you think of some extension enhancement I obviously haven't thought of, I'm all for it.

Using both Firefox with SpellBound and Thunderbird, is it possible to link the two seperate profile persdict.dat files together? I've just found myself having to add a whole set of words that were already in one personal dictionary to the other. Can I manually combine the two in one profile and then make the other a symbolic link to it?

The Mozilla spell check engine which is used by spellbound does not support linking the two afaik.

Bump.

No more spellbound?

The built-in spelling isn't sufficient. It doesn't check every field automatically, and there doesn't seem to be a way to change that.

Is there no other option?

Right. I should've specified. There's that and there's the built-in, but neither of them does inline spellcheck on every field - that one doesn't do inline spellcheck at all.

For the built-in version in Firefox 2, type about:config into the location bar.
Locate the preference layout.spellcheckDefault, double-click on it and change it's value to 2.

Yes, I know. But it still doesn't work all of the time.

The fields I want it for the most are quick reply fields on vbulletin boards - and it doesn't work.

I think there's another example, too, but I'm not coming up with it off the top of my head.

I just don't like not noticing typos when I'm trying to sound intelligent.

And I think my typing skills have peaked.

Bump again.

No more spellbound dev version?

I'm really frustrated that Firefox has this huge usability issue, and there's no available fix.

A bump from me.

The built in spell check isn't nearly as good as spellbound. I'd really like a version that would work with Fx 2.

I will be extremely busy working on Firefox 3.0 but if I can find the time to update it I will.

I'd personally appreciate it, Robert S.

I'm very frustrated by the current spellchecking system in Firefox 2. It would be a huge help if you could do that.

That would be a very welcome update.
