Recently my Chrome no longer checks my spelling. The "Enable spell checking" is checked on, but the spell checker does nothing. It does not check spelling, there is no suggestions for any word I type in a textbook, and the right-click menu item is grayed out.
I tried to uninstall and reinstall, but the problem persists. Also I find that the folder
C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\Dictionaries is empty. Could anyone point to a possible solution?
EDIT: I found out the reason for my issue. It is actually the Great Firewall in China interfering with the download of dictionaries. But given the answers below, there are many different causes of the same phenomena, so I won't mark any answers as "accepted" and leave it for the readers to decide what applies to them.
