Why does Firefox spell check not work for Summary field?

I use Firefox's built-in spell checker.  It works for the Description and Comments fields, but not the Summary.  Is anyone else having this problem too?  Is there something I have to configure in JIRA for spell check to work in the Summary field?  Thanks.

could you see if it is the same in Chrome ?


try using Grammarly addon and see if that helps you. 


hope this helps

Spell check in the summary field works in Chrome.

Unfortunately, I could not try Grammarly because its not compatible with my version of Firefox.

Hey @Raj Vora

Looks like the class html for the fields are different for Summary and Description. 

That is the only Jira specific thing I can find with why Firefox is treating the fields differently. 

Hope this helps!

This is still an issue with Firefox 82.0.
