Google search and spellcheck

Post by Octopuss » 2020-01-16, 13:47

I have spellcheck turned of in Windows and in PM as well.
Yet, fucking Google keeps underlining words anyway.

I would say it would be something with your particular setup or extensions as I am not having this issue at all.
*And I actually had to use google' search for the first time in many years...I need a shower now.

@Moonraker: I did look for that option in settings but it was not offered from what I saw.

Off-topic:
If you feel you need to swear whenever you mention the search engine, why are you still using it?

The quickest solution is to stop using Google.
You might want to check DuckDuckGo (which also provides economic funding to the Pale Moon project), Ekoru (ocean cleaning) or Ecosia (tree planting.)

I am used to Google. And from what I heard it's unbeatable with results.
I am borderline autistic when it comes to visual side of things, so the other engines are a no go.

Anyway, Firefox underlines the stuff as well with its own spellcheck setting disabled, so it must be something else than my setup.

No underlining here. (Neither have I a Google account nor are cookies enabled for Google.)
Spellcheck is enabled in Pale Moon.

Actually, whether the spelling checker in Pale Moon is enabled or not won't make a difference because Google explicitly disabled the spell check on the input element meaning it is an exclusively server-side thing they do. If it doesn't happen you're likely blocking something that's needed for it to function (e.g. a specific piece of JS)
<input class="gLFyf gsfi" maxlength="2048" name="q" jsaction="paste:puy29d" aria-autocomplete="both" aria-haspopup="false" autocapitalize="off" autocomplete="off" autocorrect="off" autofocus="" role="combobox" spellcheck="false" title="Search" value="" aria-label="Search" data-ved="0ahUKEwizwqK5743nAhWIY1AKHW3rAhcQ39UDCAY" type="text">

Oh, that's good new because I don't need to go crazy trying to figure out whether the Windows' spellcheck isn't bugged and activated when it shouldn't.
