Do I need to turn the spellchecker on in about:config?

I have this build...

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030729

...but the spellchecker doesn't appear in the toolbar of a new mail message. The posting says that it's is now "turned on" though. Am I missing something?

You know, ala iespell? I'm a horrible speller and this would be a godsend. I know with Mozilla being broken up and all that kinda is wishful thinking. But in the longterm having a spellchecker extension for Firebird that allows you to spellcheck any webforms is something a lot of people would use.
