Facebook's spellcheck

Friends and I are having a debate here. When I misspell something on Facebook, it picks it up and I'm able to find the spelling. One friend insists that I amusing Google Chrome and I'm not. Another says Facebook does not have spell check at all. So where does the spell check come from that Facebook uses?

 

Thanks to anyone that can help settle this.

Yeah, i dont think Facebook has it's own spellchecker.. Are you using Firefox (with a built-in spell checker) or the GoogleToolbar for Firefox or Internet explorer (with a built in spell checker) ?

 I use Firefox. Looks like it's their spell checker. When I  click on properties, the firefox logo comes up.

Yes, it's Firefox. Facebook isn't so crafty ;)

I am so glad I figured that it was FireFox...b/c I have been trying to figure out why it wasn't working anymore on FaceBook....I guess I must have messed up my setting or something. I did find an app on Facebook for spell check...but you have to go to that app, so it really isn't convenient.

Are you using Firefox as your browser?

Re: Facebook's spellcheck
My Mom has a Dell Laptop. Her spell checker does not work on her e-mail, the cable company I believe is the blame there. Then on Yahoo it does not work, or on facebook. She uses Internet Explorer. How can I tell if she uses Firefox? If so how do I turn on the spell checker? Does yahoo have a spell checker,? doesn't work . HELP>>> Kathleen

Internet Explorer does not have a built-in spell checker - Assuming she is using Internet Explorer for her email, this would explain why the spell-check does not work. Also explains Yahoo and Facebook Spellcheck not working.

You can tell if she's using Firefox by asking her: 1) "did you install Firefox?" or 2) "does the icon you click for interwebs look like a big blue 'e', or like a red/orange (fire color) fox wrapped around a globe?"

Internet Explorer 10 has a built-in spellcheck but you have to have Windows 8 to use it.
