Avoid Embarrassing Blog Title Spelling Mistakes With A Firefox Tweak

by Mr. Lazy

We’ve all hit ‘publish’ on great and not-so-great blog posts only to read them the next day with misspelled titles. The problem is by the time you’ve caught it yourself a bunch of people have left comments about it and your permalinks are all screwed up.

Luckily, Firefox makes adding spell check to input fields (like your WordPress blog title) an easy tweak.

  1. Open Firefox.
  2. Type “about:config” in the address bar.
  3. You’ll be warned about voiding your warranty. Good thing Firefox doesn’t have one, click “I’ll be careful, I promise!”.
  4. Scroll down to layout.spellcheckDefault and double-click. Change the value to 2 and click OK.

There, now you’re done. Your input fields will now have the helpful read line underneath them when you misspell words in both your blog text area and input titles.
