I agree with ajpaterson that spell-checking should've been an optional extension. Not everyone wants spell-checking in their browser (I certainly don't) and it's not really an "essential" feature, just one that the Mozilla Foundation can use as a "selling point" against other browsers. I also agree that the option to reject third-party cookies should be fixed and implemented in Firefox 2; from a practical standpoint, the ability to reject cookies outside of the site you're currently on is of much greater value than spell-checking!
