    Question for the computer experts

    Need your help please guys.

    I've just had to change a lot of computer equipment, including my own computer, which is now Windows 10 as opposed to 7 which I've always used up until now. I can't seem to get the windows spell checker to work in Firefox. It works fine in all the other applications I have, including other browsers, but resolutely not in Firefox.

    Any suggestions anyone? (en-gb is already enabled by the way)

    Good luck with that Phil.
    I used Windozes 7 and Firefox for years, no problems. Then when I changed to Windozes 10 worked for a time then after a while started to get these messages.

    Now I get, Your connection is not secure and, Corrupted Content Error

    You need to download a 3rd party spellchecker for Firefox
    Windows 10 removed support for it in one of the updates of Win 10
    I did and it works ok now
