Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have Mozilla-Thunderbird installed 1.0.7 and I have a Spell-Check option when I send email however when I select that "spell check" option, it has no suggestions when clearly there are corrections to be made.
I had the exact same thing happen. The problem turned out to be that I didn't have execute permission for the necessary dictionary files.
Unfortunately, I can't remember now exactly which folder I changed to get it back. I think it was /usr/lib/thunderbird, but it could have been /usr/share/thunderbird or /var/lib/thunderbird. Whichever it is though, just make sure your user has execute permissions and the problem should go away.
Simply check tools>>extensions to see what you have installed. If you didn't install it yourself, you probably don't have it.
I still think it's a permissions problem though, because the exact same thing happened to me. Examine the permissions on the directories I mentioned above, and give yourself executable access if they don't have it already. I'm pretty sure that will take care of the problem.
