By the way, just saying, but these YouTube thingys don't work on Nokia7 windows phones. I don't expect anybody cares but it is frustrating to be confronted with thousands of posts containing nothing but huge black oblongs that sit there menacingly.
And why the feck is my phone giving me red underlined spell check against oblong ffs?
I need a new phone obviously.

This is the thing. They seduce you with pretty moving images and sounds whilst sneakily corrupting. It wont end with oblongs I tell thee.

I like that the inbuilt Firefox spell-checker not only refuses 'facebook' but also pissing 'Firefox'!

I doubt that they're in any dictionary, Prufrock, and certainly not mine. If it bothers you then take the trouble (right click on the underlined word) and add them.

True, not everyone recognizes the difference between facebook and Facebook, and of course it recognizes Firefox but not firefox. It tries to teach the use of capitals in proper names which can only be a good thing.

Meh I missed an 'F'. It does not recognise 'Firefox'! I've just typed it. There. And it's got a squiggly line.

They're proper nouns. You'd think easily recognisable ones. Particularly 'Firefox'.

See if your phone is as shit as mine. Type in oblongs and watch it stick a squiggly red line underneath that!

Nope. It's happy with 'oblongs'. This is on laptop though, phone doesn't have a spell-check.

Do you think the Smokin chap types structure and it is underlined in squiggly red? He might think that means importance, so keeps typing it everywhere.

Well, my spell-check recognizes Firefox - but then again my browser is Mozilla Firefox. It also requires one to capitalize Google, although this seems to be becoming a lower-case verb.
