What did WordPress do with Firefox’s Spell Check?

  2007-02-23


I upgraded to WordPress 2.1.1 last night, and now WordPress wants me to use its spell checker instead of Firefox‘s.

This is really annoying as I don’t really want or need a new spell checker. Firefox’s works great. WordPress’s is just slow and laggy because it uses AJAX.

Also, the whole auto-save feature of WordPress would be nice if Firefox didn’t already have the Session Restore feature.

Its as if WordPress’s 2.1 roadmap consisted of reimplementing Firefox 2.0 features in AJAX…

I like WordPress alot, but these new features are just a nuisance.

Anyone know how to turn these features off?

Update: My friend Dan pointed out that someone has submitted a bug to WordPress for the Firefox spellcheck issue.
