    Hi

    i'm using Mac OS X in English but i'm French and need the spell checker in French. Each time I have to change the language of the whole interface, log out and log in again.

    I checked the Dictionnary preferences thinking it might be linked but I can't see any French options.

    Do you have any idea how i can modify this setting so that the spell checker in Safari or Firefox or any programs switches to French?

    thanks

    Safari: Right click in a text box, Spelling and Grammar, Show Spelling and Grammar, select French.

    For Firefox, you have to install the French dictionary plugin at addons.mozilla.org

    Thanks for your reply but the "Show Spelling and Grammar" option is greyed out, I can't select it

    Try another textbox. Google for example doesn't work, while Twitter does. Don't really know why :eek:
