Spell checking when using Experts Exchange Article Rich Text Editor

I'm using Firefox 40.0.2 on Windows 10.

When I'm asking questions in EE, spell checking works just fine:

However, when I'm composing a new Article, the 'Article Body' field - spell checker just doesn't work! See here:

If I right click on the fields that work, I get the Firefox right click menu which has options for spell checking:

Any one have any idea's why this is and if it is something I can resolve?

thanks

Hi

Whilst not a solution as such, i believe that reporting as a bug as Joe has is the way forward. I will keep an eye on the  Article WYSIWYG project page and see what comes of it.

I have been using Outlook/Word to check my text chunks recently but feel that given the other fields (i realise& understand those fields are not using the same text editor)

Thanks
