Crazy SpellCheck

Spellchecker is stressing nearly every word, correctly spelled or misspelled. I can disable completel; There? What can I do? Really boring...


I guess that the spell checker is crazy because the incorrect dictionary has been selected. To select Law Dictionary:

  1. Right-click on a text box and open the submenu language .
  2. Make sure the dictionary required (in English) has a tick mark against it.

If this is not enough and you really want to disable completely spell, see these instructions: How to use the spellchecker of Firefox?.

  • Spellchecker drives me crazy

    Is it possible to disable the spell 'feature' correction in Skype for Windows 8, or at the very least make it actually work? I have Windows 8 with the Spanish (Spain) by default entry/method/etc. language implemented in the Windows options, but SkypeW8 points out almost every word as bad. Even more infuriatingly, it will be "correct" a few words quite right for BAD alternatives. For example if I write "hecho" ('fact', 'done') it will automatically turn it into 'echo' ('for', 'expel'), which is absurd in the context.

    I tried to check the language settings in Windows 8, they are fine and no other application gives me bad. I tried to disable the automatic spelling correction first and then even the spell checking in Windows 8 Metro settings (settings of laptop-> General-> spelling) nothing works, SkypeW8 simply ignored my settings. I tried to add a language English (UK) to see if the spell checker got right English... the same problem did surface, with no word never acknowledged as correct.

    If you please, that gives crazy me and I can't use same Skype for desktop PC because I have a unrelated problem that won't let me write all text messages (people here, it's because of some 'Youtube MP3 downloader' but I don't have such a program). Is it possible to work the spell or least make him shut up and do not correct me (fake) in my native language?

  • Automatic correction of mail drives me crazy in Sierra of MaxOS

    I have an iMac with Mac Os 2010

    Sierra and AutoCorrect in email feature is literally driving me crazy. It no longer meets the total and I have to wait to see what misspelled words I have (and it is sometimes several words at a time) until I can move forward. I think it has to go to the cloud to make changes (everywhere) so that I can pass. Is there a solution to this ridiculous to take two steps back? If I downgrade to El Capitan, this new file system will always be be raging in me? If it is irreversible, I'll be forced to buy Windows 10 and use it with Boot Camp! Why Apple thinks it makes life better by forcing us all to re-learn everything we thought we knew already? These people don't realize that it's uncomfortable to start from scratch each year? This is what happens when people feel frustrated. They become angry and act like I do now. Good thing I don't own a gun.

  • The fan works like a crazy and super fast drain battery after installation of Sierra

    I installed Sierra on my MacBook Pro, the fan works like crazy and the battery is empty after about 1.5 hours. Which never happened before. I'm only using Safari and Mail in the moment. I talked to Apple Support and they suggested to reset the SMC, but this brought no improvements. What can I do else? Again, I plan to install the El captain...

    I had this problem just after I installed Sierra on my MacBook Air.  First I tried to reset the SMC and the LANDAU.  This does not prevent fans constantly in the course of execution.  I then used the activity monitor to see what was possibly strain my system.  I noticed the "DCs" process was always sucking up to more than 90% of my CPU usage.  However, others said that it is normal after an upgrade of the OS and it should fall back down once the computer finishes its initial picture and analysis of the files.  So I run my MBA plugged nonstop for 36 hours in a row and the fans just kept running so that the process of "DCs" continued to drain at > 90% of CPU usage.  I also looked carefully at the activity monitor and saw that tasks such as analysis of photos had their own separate process "DCs".  So I dug further into what the devil "DCs" was really do with a lot of CPU resources.  Long story short, I found that there is some glitch in Sierra which causes the macOS stuck on a process involving the keychain and iCloud.

    That's what I did to fix this keychain/iCloud which led to "DCs" fans of triggering and overloading the CPU to be always on:

    -In the activity monitor, I used Force Quit to kill the process that involved the keychain

    -In the activity monitor, I then Force Quit the process that involved icloud

    -In activity monitor, I finally Force closed the process "DCs". (I found that I could not simply force quit 'DCs' without first allowing the keychain & iCloud first)

    -After all, I restarted the computer and fans were finally off the coast!  I open the activity monitor and saw that 'DCs' has is no longer hogging up the CPU usage.  Photoanalysis process were still running in the background at 40-50% CPU use with no trigger unwanted system fans.  the iCloud synchronization and my keychain also worked very well.

    I'm finally able to use Sierra without my fans blazing out of control.  It took me a while to get this sorted out.  Hope this helps to save you a few headaches and time until Apple can get counts that there is this Sierra software glitch they need to address.

  • Apple Watch sport does not work correctly. The display is 'crazy' once or twice a week and I need to force restart it. Do you know what is happening with the watch? Is this a common failure?

    Apple Watch isn't working properly. The display is to be 'crazy' once or twice a week. And I need to force restart it. Is this a common failure?


    This isn't a failure or defect.

    Zoom (an accessibility function) has been activated on your watch and you are zoomed accidentally tapping on the screen in a particular way.

    • To turn off the Zoom:
      • On your iPhone, in the application of the watch, go to: My Watch (tab) > general > accessibility > Zoom - put it off.
      • Or on your watch, go to: homescreen (via a simple press on the digital Crown) > (cog icon) settings > general > accessibility > Zoom - tap and enable / disable.
    • If the accessibility shortcut has been enabled and configured for the Zoom, you can also enable and disable functionality more conveniently:
      • On your watch: quickly press the digital Crown (the round button) three times.
    • To set up accessibility shortcuts:
      • On your iPhone, in the application of the watch, go to: Watch My > general > accessibility > accessibility shortcut (bottom) > select / deselect Zoom.
  • suddenly I'm asking as a new tab and not google search - driving me crazy

    Ask the home page is driving me crazy. I want my google search customary as that which opens when I press on the new tab. I was everywhere on the internet to try to fix this. nothing works.

    Since there are different options/settings of the standard page in a new window or a new tab, could you confirm if you have one or two of these problems:

    • Ask if poster at the start, in a new window (Cmd + n), and when you click the Home button
    • Ask appears when you open a new tab in the same window (Cmd + t)

    For these two problems, the first thing to check is an unwanted extension. You can view, disable and often remove the extensions on page modules. Either:

    • CMD + SHIFT + a (Windows: Ctrl + Shift + a)
    • "3-bar" menu button (or tools) > Add-ons

    In the left column, click Extensions. Then take a critical look at the extensions listed on the right side. If in doubt, disable or remove if possible. Remember that all extensions are optional, none come with Firefox.

    Often, a link will appear above at least an extension disabled to restart Firefox. You can complete your work on the tab and click one of the links in the last step.

    Which allows you to regain control of your homepage and view the standard Firefox new tab page?

    If so, here are the details on how to restore your preferred homepage:

    If you find that it works in your session (Cmd + n and give you good home page), but after leaving Firefox and commissioning once again you have bad home page, look for an optional settings file named user.js in your profile (personal settings folder) folder. Firefox uses the settings in this file at startup to override your preferences since the previous session. You can check and delete the file by following the steps in this article: How to fix preferences that will not save (there is a specific section on the user.js files).

    Display Google in a new tab page requires a different approach. From Firefox 41, the browser.newtab.url parameter is no longer used because it was constantly attacked by malware. Now, you need an add-on to change the new tab page.

    Here are a few options (I'm learning more all the time):

    • If you are already using the "Restorer of classic theme" or "Tab Mix Plus" extension: There is an option somewhere (!) in his dialogues of the parameters to select another page in the new tab.

    Use only one of these methods at the same time, otherwise there may be conflicts and dysfunctions.

    Setting up substitute new tab and new tab custom

    After installing one of these extensions, you must use the Options page to set the new desired tab page (instead of use subject: config).

    Open the page modules using either:

    • CTRL + SHIFT + a (Mac: Cmd + shift + a)
    • "3-bar" menu button (or tools) > Add-ons

    In the left column, click Extensions. Then on the side right, find the new tab replace or custom new tab and click on the Options button. (See first screenshot attached).

    New tab Override

    Depending on the size of your screen, you may need to scroll down to enter the address in the form. (See second screenshot attached). For example:

    • (Default) page thumbnails = > subject: newtab
    • Blank tab = > subject: empty
    • Built-in Firefox homepage = > topic: welcome
    • Any other page = > full URL of the page

    Then tab or click this form field and you can test using Ctrl + t.

    Custom new tab

    It is easy to enter your favourite homepage address. If you check either of the boxes, the expansion will set the focus in the page as well, for example, the cursor will be in the Google search box. (See third screenshot attached). I had to leave Firefox and start it up again before new custom tab started working, but this may have been due to tests so many extensions back to back.


  • By default, Firefox spellchecker bad language

    I've read many threads of the forum on this subject, but none of them solved my problem.
    The spellchecker of Firefox highlights almost every word I type - I discovered that its spellchecker language is set to French.
    So, in the options, I deleted all the dictionaries as English. The problem persisted.
    I think the problem might be that I lived in France when I originally installed Firefox - even if I chose the version English and my computer is in English. I am now back in the United Kingdom. I downloaded the English UK version and installed as an update. That did not work.
    I also completely uninstalled the app (I thought), restarted the computer and reinstalled the English version - but when I opened it, all my favorites etc were exactly as before and the problem persists.
    Anyone offer a solution? I really need the spell check function and I really want to come back to Chrome...
    I use Firefox 41.0 on a Windows 7 laptop.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hello again. My problem is solved! I found that I could right-click on email gmail window and select the language here - it was fixed in French rather than English. So now, everything seems to work very well. Thanks a lot for your help.

  • Siri & command voice crazy when the execution with headphones

    Everyone knows a combination of Siri (and after I disabled Siri) then the voice command goes a bit out of whack? This happens when I'm out of the race, I have my iPhone 6plus in an armband and I use generally a few apps (Strava & MapMyRun) running and listening to music. I say try because recently Siri turned without my activation. I have disable Siri and then on another race and unusable voice control music playback. Effect, apart from the interruption of playback of music, had to skip songs, fast forward and usually impossible music.

    Initially I thought he could have my cuff by pressing the buttons somehow, but after a few tries I excluded only. I guess it must be something to do with the helmet, but does not know which affected them has an effect on this problem. They used to work properly.

    Thought I'd share a few comments. The fault was with the helmet. Must have been faulty wiring or a certain type of damage that has been feeding via the headphones and sending crazy Siri. A new pair of headphones did the trick, and once again I can listen to my music while on the race. I deliberately chose headset without a microphone this time. After all, I'm not really taking a call when I'm blowing and blowing on a race and I hope that can mean this pair last longer.

    Also, tip practice, might be useful to check the headphone jack for an accumulation of lint. I used a stick to fish out debris.

  • My Apple Watch battery empties crazy fast after restoring my phone and repair

    I have recently known bad charge my phone. I restored to factory settings and then restore the backup, for both the phone and watch. The phone still does not load right, but this isn't the most pressing issue at the moment. As I fixed my Apple Watch, the battery was draining like crazy, even if I shot on airplane mode, limited notifications and turned down the brightness. In addition, all of my activities and training sessions disappeared. The watch doesn't remember my heart rate among the thousands of miles, I ran, cycled, etc.. Before the repair, I have the brightness all the way up to, have all notifications, disable airplane mode and go on an hour three run without having to load it wake-up until the evening. Now, the battery died before the lunch hour. Advice or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Hi John

    Health and historical activity data is stored on your iPhone, not on your watch.

    During erasing and restoring your iPhone, in order to have the historical data (among other sensitive data, such as saved passwords) be kept, to first make a backup of your iPhone, then, after erasing your iPhone to restore from this backup encrypted.

    iCloud backups are encrypted automatically. If you use iTunes, it is necessary to select the option to "Encrypt iPhone backup".

  • Restore the old logo of firefox in the start page for firefox & lose crazy tail Fox logo

    Within the last few days my regular firefox logo appearing on the firefox start page has changed on my desktop (windows xp) and two laptops (windows 8 and windows 8.1). All changed logos at the same time. The normal logo (globe portfolio blue orange fox) is now an orange Fox (globe portfolio) with a tail of control crazy that encircles wildly around the world a couple of times. Is not cute & compact but instead takes a lot of space and really bothers me. Firefox has been one of the rare browsers that I have the right to make the automatic updates, but I'm going to change these settings, since I had so much trouble trying to change the rear logo. My history of update watch 32.0.3 update has been installed on 24-09-14 & put update 32.0.2 installed 30-10-14, which seems odd to me since 32.0.3 would seem to come after 32.0.2. (There is no cartoon character saying "click me" nor is there excerpts, and I don't want to block the ordinary brand logo, I just want to get rid of this crazy tail logo).

    I appreciate your help on this as this crazy tail logo is driving me crazy!  Thank you very much.

    The change of the logo on the default home page is temporary for various promotional campaigns that Mozilla is run. Unfortunately, it seems to be the 'new normal' now. When he started last spring, it was like once every two months for a week or two, but now it looks like a 'week', then in another week or two another promo starts.

    Follow cor - el's guidelines to lock the "excerpt" from being downloaded, then clear the current "SnippetsMap" via the Web Console.

    Or, just set your own choices for your home page.
