Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:9.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/9.0.1
Build ID: 20111220165912

Steps to reproduce:

In the German version (10.0 beta) I had installed the German and English dictionaries,
open a composing window, 
type in a message,
write a wrong word like "futher",
the word is recognized as error and is red, squiggly  underlined 
right click onto the word to find suggestions 
I tested it with a German word, same behaviour
It  doesn't ever show any suggestions.




Actual results:

no suggestions,
you can see the first menu point greyed out (no suggestions)


Expected results:

TB should give me at least two suggestions (further and father)

Problem is solved. It was the fault of an incompatible add-on.
In this case the add-on "Buttons 0.5.3.2".
Sorry for not realizing it before or in safe-mode.

No problem :-) Better a false alarm than missing a bug.
