Has anyone noticed that firefox now checks your spelling? It's very useful.

Mine checks my spelling too, but it's rather frustrating and it always comes up with American spellings for a lot of the words!

You should be able to get it using an English dictionary other than 'US English'. However, I'm still using Firefox 1.5 (no spell checker) on my main machine so can't check the steps for you.
