Curious why Firefox spell check does not work up here.

You mean on the forums when creating topics or making replies?

Not sure if it is related, but my XP Spell check has problems also.

Windows 7 picks up even if I write it it twice together ??

 

EDIT - @ Animal - I mean forum, not sure on Old Phil -

If it is on the forums one of the staffers here discovered the resolution.

You're the first to report spell check issues in IE. All others were Firefox, which I just posted the work around for.

IE 8 didn't have built in spell check, so you would have to check with the developer of the add-on. IE spell check was never reported as a bug back in February or since.
