Yeah Firefox users will not see that option since they don't need it.

Seems to me Firefox is restricting your freedom to use any spell checker and forcing their's down your throat. Sonds very Microsoft-like to me.

You would think so, but Firefox gives you the option to use their superior spell checker or turn it off so that you are able to use other spell checkers if you so desire. Of course no Firefox user would ever want to turn it off since it works so well and is so easy to use.

I use firefox and, as you say GB, it underlines the spelling mistakes but I use the spell check from my Google tool bar which does not pick some of them up. I use Google mainly because I was using it before I went to firefox and it's become habit and [B] We spell quiet a few words differently than you do in the US and Google give the AU version

Having said that I have never tried firefox spell check to see if it would give me the Australian spelling.

I believe you can choose different libraries for the Firefox spell checker so AU would be an option I am sure.

After typing your reply, you should click on the spell check icon. That's the icon with the ABC and the check mark. Then a little window will appear with the first misspelled word and offer you the opportunity to fix it. That repeats until all the misspelled words are corrected. If there are no spelling errors, a window pops up stating that spell check is complete.

Just checked, you are right GB, just need to go to "add dictionary" and install it
