    Need a good Spelling Checker

    as per a request, I will put this in its own thread:

    If you use Internet Explorer or one of its compatable substitutes as an browser, and you are in need of a good (small, quick, and free) spelling checker, you might want "ieSpell".
    ieSpell is a free Internet Explorer browser extension that spell checks text input boxes on a webpage. It should come in particularly handy for users who do a lot of web-based text entry (e.g. web mails, forums, blogs, diaries). Even if your web application already includes spell checking functionality, you might still want to install this utility because it is definitely much faster than a server-side solution. Plus you get to store and use your personal word list across all your applications, instead of maintaining separate ones on each application.

    The program installs as a new button in the IE toolbar (as well as a new menu item under "Tools") - after filling in a form, just hit the ieSpell button and it pops up a dialog, similar to the MS Word spell check. ieSpell also works (right-click menu only) on other IE based browsers such as SlimBrowser, CrazyBrowser, MSN, MyIE, etc.
    You can get it here: ieSpell
    Unfortuantely, I use Mozilla Firebird and it doesn't work with it, so if anyone knows of a compatable spell checker for Firebird....let me know.

    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    phishphreek80, Thank you....I have been looking for a good spell checker for Firebird for a long time.
    (note: now all I have to do is get it working....lol....it is behaving exactly like the 'AO' one, hanging and not doing anything.)
    [Edit] Ok, after reading farther down the thread, it seems:
    Very simple solution.
    Install components at <spellchecker.mozdev.org> (for moz 1.5a) to your firebird.
