Firefox’s Built-in Spellcheck Stinks

Wednesday, July 9th, 2008

I was just writing an e-mail when I misspelled “Apparently.”  Firefox is great in that it told me that I misspelled it, but look at the suggestions it gives me:

Esperanto!?  What the heck? It’s like it’s looking for something that matches putting more weight on the letters further right rather then left.

I then added another P and it gave me what I was looking for.

Is there a plug-in for a better one out there?  Typing that same misspelling into a google search or dictionary.com search and they give me the correct suggestion (or at least something a little closer).
