When I click on Help and select "Mail and News", it discusses using the "Spell" button in the Mail Toolbar or using the "Check Spelling" under the "Options" button. But when I look at the Mail Toolbar or the options under "Options", there are no Spell Check functions available. Either the Help is wrong or Spell Check is not properly installed. I have tried installing Mozilla 1.4 release code 1 both as "complete" and "custom" to see if there is a Spell Check insalation option, but I can't find one. If Spell Check is not available on 1.4 release code 1, what is the latest Mozilla to support Spell Check? I read Release Notes and there was nothing indicating "Spell Check" was not available. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start "Mail & Newsgroups". 2. Select Compose. 3. Try to Spell Check and find there is no "Spell" buton nor "Check Spelling" under "Options". Actual Results: Nothing, I couldn't find any way to spell check. Expected Results: There should be a "Spell" button on the Mail Toolbar or a "Check Spelling" option for the "Option" button.
-> Help The help is werong because there is no integrated spellchecker in mozilla. (but you can download it as addon)
You can download a third-party spellchecker from http://spellchecker.mozdev.org *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 56301 ***
this is not a dupe of that bug. The help contains informations about the spellchecker but there is currently no spellchecker in Mozilla
-> documentation:user the search index also needs to be updated to remove entries about spell checker
changing summary to help people find this bug
Mozilla now has all the spellchecking functions mentioned in the documentation. Marking FIXED.
