The spell checker on my companies SharePoint site seems to not be working correctly. When we type a spelling error, i.e. customre, then click the Spell checker it says no spelling errors are found, but if you keep clicking it after 5+ times it seems to find the error.

Is there a way to make this work on the first click as it's causing a lot of our business areas to add incorrect content?

Can you check your server logs? It sounds very similar to a problem that I'm experiencing & haven't gotten an answer for yet.

Here is a thread that I found that is similar.

We have no access to our server logs, they locked that down to us. That level of access only lays with our support team. – Tom Feb 7 '13 at 9:19
Can you run Fiddler on your workstation? When the spell check incorrectly says "No spelling errors found", I noticed that Fiddler would actually show the HTTP response contained the error. It would be interesting to see if you get the same result. – Jason Rastovski Feb 8 '13 at 16:37
