Haven't quite gotten to the bottom of this, but in Firefox the "comment on a story" feature is an HTML element with contentEditable set. I assume they use keydown/keyup to read the data that's been typed, using the spell checker *will* fire an *input* event which they should listen to. Harald, can you ask if your Facebook contacts are aware of this? I looked at Chrome, but for some reason typing a comment happened in a TEXTAREA so the problem doesn't apply.
This issue has been fixed by Facebook.
