It seems that FireFox on my system isn't running spellcheck on textareas on this site. It is behaving elsewhere for me though.

Is anyone else seeing this in FireFox or any other browser for that matter, or is it localised to me?

I think on some of my Firefox it behaved that way, esp. on Mac OS X

OK so apparently installing the en-gb version of firefox doesn't come with the uh, en-gb dictionary and apparently you needed to know that you needed to manually go to a website ( https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/language-tools/ ) and get it yourself

I did not know that. Moot point for me, after using Firefox since 2004 I switched to Opera last year and haven't looked back.

I find firefox extremely buggy. The Windows 7 version is worse than the Windows 10 one. I leave browsers open for weeks at a time and FF has issues releasing RAM and with deadlocks occurring in its UI engine. Screen resize in a remote desktop session is a killer for FF under Windows 7. Extended downloads are a general problem as is the frozen toolbar and upper inch of the browser window (the active web pages will still work fine however).

I have to assume that FF dev's are like MSIE ones. They never actually use the product they dev, they go home and use Chrome


Just like Edge dev's Oh wait... *burn*

I use Firefox on principle. Sometimes it's a little frustrating (usually when they remove features I really like), but we need alternative browsers with alternative browser engines. There's not much out there besides blink-based browsers any more and that doesn't seem very healthy.

I've never liked Chrome. Back in the 90's, I enjoyed Netscape Navigator. I've always had an aversion to Internet Explorer without knowing fully why. It wasn't before the early 2000's I started understanding how browsers worked. Around 2004 / 2005 I noticed Firefox and gave that a chance. That has been my preferred browser up until a couple of years ago (if even that long) when I made the switch to Opera.

Opera has it's fair share of issues, but it works rather nicely once I get to tweak the UI to my liking. I've been meaning to check out Firefox after they released Quantum. But I'm just not a personal fan of the Firefox organization and would rather not support them in any manner.

On the topic of browsers, can anyone live without extensions / addons anymore? I don't even remember what it's like living in a world without adblockers and LastPass!

I'm not overly impressed with Firefox, I only moved last year. I have a lot of issues with it, bu many of those issues qualify with all the others too.

I won't touch Edge, it's a vulgar joke. I won't touch Chrome it's a vulgar joke malicious spyware. I haven't looked at x86 Opera since... 2002 may be.

Let's see. Add-ons:
ABP
NoScript
HTTPS everywhere
A proxy toggler
A dictionary (apparently)

No flash, silverlight etc. I made a decision 3 years ago not to install them anywhere.

I should use lastpass (I've set up enough people on it), but I don't...

I use Edge, and I find it quite stable in my opinion.

Firefox, I use on Mac 90% of the time.
I use Chrome just to get to sites I forget my passwords on... haha

I found a browser called Brave, I don't have any opinions because I haven't used it a lot.

I used to use "hide caption titlebar plus" to merge the title bar and toolbars into a single line, but they deprecated it with Quantum.

Palemoon seemed like a good idea at one point, but I've always had issues with it and given up. I can't remember why.

I used the Android version of Edge all the time. I like it.

What's up with this larger message/post font display?

Ah, kwicherwinin', Rich.

I migrated from Firefox to Chrome when I picked up a couple of HP notebooks with Chrome preinstalled. Haven't had any of these issues.

I was wondering the same thing. I thought I had my browser zoomed in when I first saw it.
