I am using automatic spellcheck in Thunderbird (misspelled words are automatically underlined).
This works reliably when I create a new empty message.
But when I am composing a reply message (either by clicking on “reply” or “reply all”), sometimes spellcheck works and sometimes it doesn’t.
By “it doesn’t work”, I mean that not only is it not automatically enabled, but there is no way to activate spellcheck that i could find.
I suspect this might have to do with the encoding of the original (quoted) message. But I was not able to confirm this.
Is this behavior a bug?
Can it be fixed ?
I would like to have spellcheck enabled, every time I write a message, regardless whether it is new message or reply.
I am using Thunderbird 68.8 on Debian Buster.
