My spell checker stopped working. How can I restore it?

I tried to find in Tools - Options - Advanced how to turn it on and off, but I cannot find it. How to make it work? Restarting Thunderbird used to help, but not anymore. All words are highlighted as misspelled.

Press the F10 key to make the main menu appear.

    Help please for above question

    Do you have a dictionary installed and selected?
    You can see which dictionary is selected if you right-click in a text area and open the Languages submenu.
    At least one dictionary should be installed and have a check mark to indicate that it is selected.
    *Open the "Add Dictionaries" link to install a dictionary if you do not have one.
    *Make sure that [X] "Check Spelling" in the right-click context menu is check-marked.
    You can enable or disable spell checking globally:
    *Tools > Options > Advanced : General: Browsing: "Check my spelling as I type"
    You can look here for dictionaries:

  • HT1338 built in camera has stopped working, how can I update or reinstall the drivers

    Built in camera has stopped working, how can I reinstall the respective drivers?

    Here are my best suggestions for your camera problem, Stephen:
    •  If you have not already done so, shut down Mac, restart,
        and try again.  If the camera still does not work, continue.
    • Try ALL relevant suggestions from Apple's Troubleshooting
       article: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2090
    (Apple has changed the built-in camera's name on newer Macs from "iSight" to "FaceTime" and then to "FaceTime HD."  Regardless of the name of your Mac's built-in camera, the same info and troubleshooting applies.)
       If you need to use the "reset" suggestion, use the correct reset for your Mac.
    • Use your Mac's Disk Utility to repair permissions and then
       download and apply the latest Combo Update.  For your Mac OS,
       the current version is at http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1640
    • Repair permissions again immediately following the system restart
       that completes the Combo update.
    Properly applying the Combo version of updates can sometimes correct software problems, but, if your trouble is caused by a hardware problem, there are no user serviceable parts of the camera.
    • If nothing else resolves your problem, yours is likely a hardware issue.
       Unless you have a current backup, make one now.
    Then use the final "Troubleshooting" suggestion:
    "... contact Apple or an Apple-Authorized Service Provider for service."

    i have macbook pro the recovery is in hard disk and not have recovery disk and hard disk stop working now i want to change hard disk but how can i recovery my macbook pro can help me ?

    "it shows macintosh HD OSX 10.9.5 but the hard drive that is supposed to be in the upper right corner is not showing up. So it is booting from that drive."
    Ok go to "Finder" preferences and make sure the "Hard disk" box is checked.
    That will make your boot disk show up in the upper right corner. You can tell it's a boot disk because all the files will look like this instead of just being blank files.
