Spell Check has been "grayed out" in Thundebird!

I used to have the Spell Check facility in Thunderbird working nicely for a long time. It is no longer working for a weeks now.

I find that the "Spell Check As You Type" option --along with a check mark for selecting that option which IS there-- has been "grayed out"!

I updated my Thunderbird to its latest 15.0 version five weeks ago. I just wonder whether version 15.0 has introduced the above graying out problem.

I shall highly appreciate help in getting my Spell Check option restored.

Thanks, Bob!


I did not readily find a solution to my problem in the link which you had kindly provided. However, I then thought of re-downloading Thunderbird 15.0 to see if doing that will take away my problem.

Lo n' behold, it did!

I thank you, nevertheless, for the customary prompt help from you (or other moderators) at the CNET Forum.

Good work.

I'd had pretty good luck in regards to extension removal. Sorry that it wasn't that. But good work.
