User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:8.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/8.0 Build ID: 20111104165243 Steps to reproduce: This error has been around for years but I can't find a specific post about it. When typing an email or in any text area field, the spell check will just stop finding some of the mis-spelled words. Actual results: Words were properly underlined as being incorrect. While typing, the underlining goes away for random words while others are still underlined. I cannot right-click the ones that are no longer underlined. If I right click and uncheck Check Spelling and then recheck it, the previously underlined words will be underlined again and everything then works fine. This has been going on since version 3 or so and I know it was reported before as I submitted screenshots as well but I couldn't find it and was baffled that it's still going on in version 8. This happens on version 3 or 4 and version 8 and every version in between. Expected results: Underlining should no break as I type and I should be able to fix the words without having to turn off and back on the Check Spelling feature.
