How to make Firefox work as Spell checker for any web page?

Earlier once i shared a trick of how to create fake adsense screenshots using just a small javascript in the address bar, and editing as you wish. But that was an evil use which was just for fun, but the same javascript can help in working as a spell checker for your website or any website which you visit.

Here is how –
Go to any web page, and just enter the following javascript in the address bar –

javascript:document.body.contentEditable=’true’; document.designMode=’on’; void 0

This will make the whole page text editable, and now the spell errors are easily visible same as when you see it appear while writing mails or something else in firefox. That’s the default spell checker of firefox browser.
Or you better copy this bookmarklet to the bookmark section in the browser, and whenever you want, just click on the bookmarklet and it will act as it should.
