How to Spell Check your Facebook email

We’re all using Facebook for email nowadays – but what if, like some, you simply can’t spell? Sudenly you’re in a world of emberessment with your nearest and dearest….

However, help is at hand, Reece from Facebook support, told me about a little known feature of Firefox – auto spell check.

It doesn’t come pre-installed – you need to  go to Tools | Add-ons and search for SpellCheck – then install the language you want.

Once installed – the browser restarts and now your facebook email field does a nice red underline when you’ve spelt (spelled) something wrong…. ;o). Problem solved.

The Google Chrome browser also comes with a built in spell checker.

UPDATE – 9 Nov 2010
