I believe spell checking on Firefox / non-Mac was disabled with https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/382023/ because it causes problems with access keys. More at T95104

@MusikAnimal Thanks, you are right! Then we have to wait till they fix it.

Is this the same as T177509? If so, could you mark T177509 as a duplicate (via Edit Related Tasks...Close As Duplicate)?
