This was one of the top voted bugs, and rightfully so.

Now, it would be absolutely fantastic if some of that development effort could be diverted to Bug 16409 <> ("invoke spell check in browser window - multiple form fields"). This is an RFE for ieSpell-like capability in Mozilla, which is IMO, one of the two really important things that IE still has and we don't (the other is MHTML support).
