Description

16 years ago
Using build 20020408 on winxp and linux if the user has installed a spellchecker
it they try to open a 2nd incident of the spellchecker they don't get a warning
that it's already in use.  

1. Launch mail and open 2 compose windows, type in some incorrectly spelled text
2. Launch the spellchecker on one of the compose windows
3. Switch to the other compose window and click spellcheck

Result: nothing happens, all toolbar buttons are not working, user can't even
Send the message that isn't using spellchecker
Expected:  A warning message that the spellchecker is being used (this is what
4.7 does). This will at least let the user know why the buttons aren't working

Is this a regression or is this new functionality we need to add?
How critical is this problem?
(This bug is not nominated for nsbeta1, should it be?)

This isn't a limitation of the dialog, it's the spell check engine.
Once one instance is initialized, I see " Exception error: InitSpellChecker" 
when trying to start 2nd instance.

Adding a warning would be easy. Nominating for nsbeta1.

This WFM with mozdev spellchecker (BuildID 2002112018 trunk). Is this a
Netscape-only bug or was this fixed?

This works fine in current builds. Two instances of the spellchecker can be
invoked and function properly.
