I'm assuming that Firefox is supposed to spellcheck by default, as I've seen it everywhere else, and that there's no extension that I need to enable. I didn't see any spellchecker in my extensions dialog. For some reason, there's no spellcheck in my text fields (English). I recall this was an issue in Sabayon, and I installed myspell-en, and everything was fine. I already have aspell-en installed, so I'm not sure why spellchecking doesn't work in either app.

Did you install the OpenOffice dictionary?

I'm assuming you're referring to aspell-en. I can't find any obvious OpenOffice dictionary in PiSi either under Installed or New packages, with both the main and community repositories.

EDIT: My mistake, installing openoffice-dicts right now. Hope this fixes Firefox too.

That fixed my OpenOffice problem, which should be sufficient for now (I got by just fine before the firefox live search feature), although down the road I'd like Firefox and Thunderbird to spellcheck too.

For installing a dictionary for Mozilla products go to:
Extra > Add-ons
Get extensions > Dictionaries

But you probably tried this ?  Undecided

I installed this using the Get Extensions link, but it still doesn't spellcheck my text. I have spellchecking enabled in Preferences as well.

In Firefox, spellcheck works like a charm, but in OOo, despite me having installed the OOo dictionary package in Pisi, there's still no spellcheck.

My question is : -maybe there was something to configure after installing the OOo dictionary package ?

Thanks in advance for your insights !
