Reporter, do you still have this problem?  Please try what Loic said.  The problem may be caused by an extension (or multiple extensions) that changes the context menu.
Could you also try on a site which doesn't use any plugins, Bugzilla for example? I'm not able to reproduce this bug with Firefox 14.0.1 on Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit. I *think* we use Google's spellchecker API, but I'm not 100% sure about that.
