How to enable Firefox spell check in KoL chat and probably other things.

Type "about:config" in the location bar and hit enter (no quotes). Click "I'll be careful, I promise"  but be careful not to change anything else.
Type "layout.spellcheckDefault" in the filter line so only that setting shows up. Right click the setting and modify. Change the value from 1 to 2.
Exit and restart Firefox. Done.

After years of waiting it's finally possible to run a complete 64bit web browser including plugins. About time Microsoft (Silverlight was the last obstacle since Netflix requires it)!

http://waterfoxproj.sourceforge.net/downloads

I now have a pure 64bit browsing environment including 64bit Java for KoLmafia. :-)

Edit: There is a bug in Microsoft Silverlight that prevents Netflix from working. Simple fix is to run the browser as administrator (right click, run as administrator). Once it plays a movie you can close the browser and then start it normally and it should work fine again. Probably a setting somewhere that doesn't get upgraded properly when moving from 32bit to 64bit.
