Default Firefox Spell Check unchecked by default in Quick Reply

It was mostly unnoticeable/forgettable, and I thought it wasn't worth reporting, until now.

Usually, Firefox Spell Check is enabled by default on every text box on the web page. An exception to that is the Quick Reply used here in Gizmo and the Wilders Security Forum (and probably everywhere else that uses this quick reply). In these place it is disabled by default, and I have to right click > Check Spelling to enable it. Other than that, it works just fine.

Is there a solution to this problem?

I have to click "post reply" or "quote". I can't type directly in the quick reply box. It's grayed out.

With either of the two possibilities, spell-check is working by deefault.

It caught "deefault".

So that is why we have some posts with such atrocious spelling. And here I was blaming it on a break down in our education systems.

Have a look through this. It's under point 10) I think.

It worked for me but I'm not necessarily recommending it :-)

I already enabled it. This problem only occurs in quick reply, not normal reply.

Sorry about reviving an old thread, but the issue is fixed by Firefox 4.
