"Check Spelling" Box Error. Quote | Reply

For the past several days, if I "check spelling" before posting (and usually there are no misspellings CoolWink) and there is a misspelled word, if I click on that word once the box launches my browser freezes.

I've tried waiting it out--never unfreezes.

I end up having to end program, loose everything I wrote in the post, and have to re-launch my browser.

It only happens if you click on the "misspelled" word.

Tested with the same results.
Changed my browser settings from "Open in New Tab" to "Open in New Window" IE7
Since it's been changed from a popup to show relevant words to showing the relelvant words to the side - if leaving the misspelled word in a red font and taking the hyperlink off isn't the solution.

Same here, freezes up the browser until End Task is issued.

Edit to add: IE7

Vista Business, IE7. The same thing happens to me. Can't do anything after trying to spell check without a process kill.

same for me, every single time... it will completely crash out I/e explorer, regardless of how many windows are open "or tabs" you have to shut the whole program down and relaunch it to work again...

if I don't misspell words, all is good.

I NEED SPELL CHECK!!!! hahaha

Can we disable spell check until this is fixed?

Try copying your text to your clipboard before spell checking. That way if it all goes to pot you have your entry at least saved to try again. Tongue

Glad it's only IE that's having a problem (this time around). Safari's doing great right now. Cool

Glad to see it's not just me. Though the browser lock-ups were my punishment for being such a bad speller. Blush

Nope, wasn't fixed yesterday. I was so annoyed, I didn't bother reconstructing my original post...

Must not have been that important--which told me something about myself. BlushTongue

I've been having this same problem for a while now (XP, IE7). I just checked it again, and it is still causing my browser to quit responding.

This is really a problem, it completely shuts down IE and you lose everything you were working on. The option to do spellcheck needs to be removed until this can be fixed. It's frustrating. Unimpressed

I can see how that would be a problem for a moderator who hadn't finished reading the unread posts and got shut down prematurely. Tongue

This is only a problem *IF* you use the spellcheck, however....correct?

Not replying to you per se, just to the general complaints about the error...

Keep a fucking dictionary next to your keyboard, or if you have MS Word, type your posts in there first, spell check it there, then cut and paste in here.

Wink

Yeah, it's more work, or you can just say to hell with spell check and post as you want to, or be like me and almost never need spell check. Tongue Laugh

I use spellcheck to find typos that I may have made, not to learn how to spell words. Tongue (So actually, it still works for me as long as I don't click on any of the words that it catches.)

And what is the problem with reporting an error? Yes, there are ways to get around the error, but if it was my website then I would want to know about the error so that I could fix it.

I was just being funny. Wink But yeah, if I were dependent on the spell check function and it was pissing me off, I'd like to know what to do about it other than taking the keyboard and smashing the monitor with it. LaughLaugh
