In FireFox click on tools -> options -> advanced. There you can either turn off the spell checker or change the language.

I have one more line on my tools menu than you do:

Options...

What version of FireFox are you using? Maybe you are using an old version of FireFox.

Sorry jailbait but I don't think there's anything wrong with his Firefox.
It's Edit > Preferences... at least in Gnome (I don't know about KDE since I don't use it)
