spell check and previous tab mark

Postby mathman » Sat Apr 07, 2012 12:00 am

I just downloaded 168 ultimate. There are two issues which I have raised many times previously and I would like to discuss them again for this version. I just tested them on both the Firefox and Chrome rendering.

1. Automatic spell checking - present in Firefox and absent in Chrome.

2. Previous tab mark - still flaky in Firefox (dotted rectangle will appear on one back, but only if shift plus left click, not at all with middle click). Chrome has a different approach - the link is marked with a different color and a red line, but the mark goes away as soon as the cursor is moved.

My request for 1. add it into Chrome and IE.

My request for 2. fix Firefox so that it works the same as in IE.

To complete the analysis I checked using IE rendering. There has been no change.

Going back on closing tabs worked properly - that is dotted line rectangle surrounds name where I had clicked on link. If you could fix Firefox rendering, I would greatly appreciate it.

Spell check is still a little clumsy - requiring request, not automatic. However, it is not too bad, since once it is requested, it checks the entire text. The Firefox approach is still preferable. Note: the IE spell check doesn't like "Firefox".

I know that I have reported these problems before, but I have yet to get some indication that they are being addressed and also when will they be taken care of?
