thunderbird unlerlines all words - not just the misspelled ones


I'm on slackware64 14.2 and I've used thunderbird for years, but now with my recent move to slackware, thunderbird-45.1.1 is marking every word as misspelled (red-underlined). I'm typing this in seamonkey-2.40, and it's doing the same thing. How do I fix this problem? AFAIK my language is set correctly. This is very annoying.

Focusing on Seamonkey, have you installed the dictionary for your locale?

something's most probably wrong in thunderbird settings.

fwiw (sorry if this sounds stupid) - i NEVER use spell check at all. writing in 3 languages, it would be way too complicated.

I installed the British-English dictionary for seamonkey, and it's not underlining stuff it shouldn't anymore. Is there a similar fix for thunderbird?
