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?

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)

You're welcome, Mark. And thanks to you for awarding points to me. Cheers, Joe

Just got the good news that spell check is going live on Monday:

Thanks Joe. That is a good step forward!!
