forum spell checker on Iceweasel not working since last upgrade


Hello. The forum spell checker on Iceweasel is not working since the last upgrade. I use Debian Lenny, but it is a mixed system of backports and some Squeeze. After the last upgrade of Iceweasel from backports, I notice that the spell checker in forums such as this one no longer works. For instance, "salkdfjkjlslkdf" does not get the red underline like it used to. It was a while ago that I had set up Iceweasel to do this, and I can't remember how I did it. I thought that I simply needed the language dictionary (in my case, Canadian English), which I'm sure still exists. So I'm not sure why this has happened.

I reinstalled the Canadian English dictionary add-on, and it now highlights (via the red underline) such unrecognized words as "poopoo" and "Iceweasel".
