No problems using spellchecker on 1.3a
After upgrade to 1.3b (RPMs here) I installed
spellchecker for 1.3b and then downloaded the
dictionaries for US, Spanish and Portuguese
Now each time I invoke spellchecker, mozilla
crashes without further notice.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  
Mozilla crashes when spellchecker is invoked.

Expected Results:  
Spellchecker window should appear to correct
the words based on the dictionary selected.
Sounds like a bug in the spellchecker, not in Mozilla...

Even so, I think this got to be analyzed to prove so no?

How can we CC this to the Calendar Development Team?

Why is this set as a calendar bug?

My mistake. What I wanted to do is change to a spellchecker bug
but I can't find it here.

That project bugs are dealt in bugzilla or in another place?
Component: Calendar General → Composition
Product: Calendar → MailNews
Version: unspecified → Trunk

Spellchecker bugs are dealt with at
Mozilla has no spellchecker, so bugzilla has no spellchecker component.

Did talkback come up after your crash? What is the talkback ID?
This is probably a duplicate of bug 191375 or one of the many other very similar
Did you uninstall the old spellchecker before installing the newer version?

Please test with a clean install of Mozilla 1.3b, a suiting spellchecker version
and a new profile and then report back.
But IMO it would be best to resolve this bug as INVALID as bug 191375 for very
similar reasons...
-> invalid

spellchecker is an addon and you must use the correct version for your Mozilla build
