    Does anyone know how to change the auto spelling corrections that i get when visiting sites. I'm fine with being told my spelling is bad but when its because we spell things over in the UK slightly different to those in the USA it annoys me a little constantly seeing red squiggly lines because i spell customise with an 'S' and not a 'Z', or because i spell colour with a 'U'. I know its not really an issue but i would like to change it to support my native spelling and not the USA version

    thank you all

    I use an English (British) dictionary in Firefox which does a really good job. I imagine you can do the same in other browsers. What is slightly odd is your English words are being flagged but your use of lower case 'i' isn't. Most spell check software would pick up on that.

    Kind of on topic but also off, here's some of the stupid things my auto correct now does:

    "Rose" changes to "arse" for whatever reason, sometimes also vice versa

    "Though" changes to either "tough", "thigh" or "thiough" depending on whatever

    Just typing in "ib" usually suggests the word "ibérique".

    "can't" changes to "Cammy" 80% of the time

    other useless things it does as well, that I can't remember, usually capitalising words in URLs and such
