Enhancement:
Activate spellchecker with a button.  Argument: I write emails in several languages but don't need spellchecker in all of them.  Would like it to be easier to switch on/off.

Reproducible: Always

From the context menu on composition's message body text, there's an option "Check Spelling" to toggle Inline-spell-checking on/off.

It's a bit surprising that same option is not available from the main toolbar button.
Reminds me of "Remind me later" for attachments which I have added to the dropdown menu of "Attach" button so that it's easier to find in that context.
I'm not sure if it's worth a dedicated button, which looks more like addon-fodder.
Summary: activation of spellchecker with a button → Provide more/easier ways to toggle inline-spellcheck on/off (optional toolbar button via customization, add menuitem to dropdown menu of Spelling button on composition toolbar)
