User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.0; rv:8.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/8.0 Build ID: 20111104165243 Steps to reproduce: Using the Dutch dictionary, i typed the following word in a text area: "ageresieve". Right clicking to correct this word was slow (0.5-1 second by my stopwatch measurement). I noticed other words are a lot faster, trough there is a variation between words, "ageresieve" sure is a worse case. The en/us dictionary for example, is fast on "ageresieve", so fast i don't notice a difference between opening the context menu on correct words and on "ageresieve". Actual results: The context menu opened slow. Expected results: The context menu should open fast (especially repeated action, catching anyone?) I tested this on both Firefox 8 and the latest nightly.

Could be a hunspell bug...
Same problem here, with french dictionary and Firefox 16.0.2 Sometimes you want to access the Context Menu, and doing it on the word "InvalidOriginalJobOrgCouple" is a very bad idea... takes too long !!! Could you add something like "If the spellcheck takes more than 2 seconds, skip it" ? And, in this case, in the context menu, add a "Force spellcheck" option so that you can still does long spellchecking ?
Do you still see this problem?
Yes, still still happens.
