Bug Description

Hello,
chromium browser is still unable to change check spelling language in an textarea (via right click) without refreshing the page (which results to losing the data input and is frustrating anyway)...

Firefox, to the contrary, does not have problem to change it on-the-fly. But it seems FF uses some different mechanism, because it looks slightly different - see the attachments.

There must be a bug somewhere :(
