Firefox has stopped checking spelling.

I'm running Firefox 55.0.3 (63-bit)

It has stopped spell checking, despite it being told too.

Anyone having this issue, or now a solution?

Also I just remembered that YouTube videos can crash, is this related?

Re: Firefox has stopped checking spelling.

Speeling is not underlined or anything to suggest it is spelt wrong.

Re: Firefox has stopped checking spelling.

Are but if you can't spell it google comes up with weird alternatives. Such as the German version - superkalifragilistikexpialigetisch which would never happen with my Firefox.
