It's really inconvenient to misspell something and not being able to right-click and correct spelling or to select some text and search from the right-click menu.

What are you using to post? The right-click spell-check is usually a function of your browser. (not the website you are visiting)

Give Grammarly a try. Works well on my iMac, maybe too well. In fact, it just told me not to use good, but well and to put a comma after fact. :)

I've had better luck with that with older forums... seems like the firefox built in stuff isn't working well in this forum... probably a recent firefox problem. Good reminder on Grammarly - I should configure it again.

I'm using the Opera browser on a Win 10 machine and spell check works just fine. Misspelled words are underlined in red as expected and right click brings up the list of suggestions and the option to add the word to the dictionary.

The right click works wel for me. Firefox underlined the wel in the previous sentence and offers me several words to choose from when I right click on it. Is your Firefox up to date? I'm at 68.0.2 for 64 bit

I am using Chrome but it is not an issue with spellcheck itself. I can't right click anywhere on the reply box. I am not sure it is just me or if any one else is having the same issue.

I "missspelled" misspell and it shows with red squiggly underline - I can right-click and choose from several alternate spellings. Using Brave browser (which is a Chrome base browser).

This would be a browser-based function. I do happen to use Chrome but I also use Grammarly.

Never mind, I cleaned out the browser cache, cookies and re-synced everything back from Google. It works as it should now. Thanks for the comments everyone!
