I have two maybe related issues pertaining to spelling in the 91.2.0 (64-bit)

Since upgrading to 91.2.0 (64-bit), I have "enable spellchecking as you type" selected, but this does not work when composing emails or replies. Also, there are no longer red wavy underlines indicating misspelled words in email replies (but they do exist in standard compositions). I have the English (US) dictionary installed.

Grateful for any advice.

See if the problem still occurs in safe mode (help -> troubleshooting mode).

Is the english (us) dictionary due to your locale (came with the installation) or did you install it as a extra dictionary?

I just tried using 91.2.0 and could replicate the issue.

Tried Troubleshoot Mode and that didn't help.

Tested with a new profile and spellcheck worked as expected.

I do have the Spelling and Grammar Checker extension installed in my production profile. You might want to try it.
