In Browse, go to a web site and enter mis-spelled words in any textarea (like this page).
The Gecko engine's spell checker underlines "badword" in red, but there's no access to corrections.
I don't know if this is simply lack of a right-button context menu in Browse, or a design issue. Apparently Write has the same issue (bug 5394).
Obviously, spell check should work identically in the Write, Browse, anything else using XULRunner, and any other program with text input.
