For those of you who are using the wonderful Spellbound development version to have check-as-you-go spellchecking in Firefox, like me you may have missed an important feature change in the latest version.
From the Mozillazine.com posting:
To display the spell as you type spelling suggestions ctrl+left-click on the misspelled word. I used left-click (along with the ctrl key) due to issues where right clicking a new location not placing the caret in the proper place which required a left click then a right click to display the popup.
Previous versions required you to just click on the misspelled word to display the spelling options. When that stopped working, I thought my installation was broken. Firefox 1.5 has a very good auto-update feature for extensions so I didn’t realize I was using a new version.
Sure enough, control+left-click does the trick. Unfortunately the inline spell checker doesn’t appear to work in the Mac OS X version.
