Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1295078
Firefox keeps changing the dictionary to EN-MW
Last modified: 2016-07-19 16:00:17 EDT
Description of problem:
When typing text in a form field (text or textarea) on a web page, the spellcheck will mark American English words as misspelled. I go to about:config, search for dictionary, and change it from EN-MW to EN-US. The spellchecker is then correct.
Then a day or two later, this happens again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm not certain how to reproduce it, other than to keep using Firefox for a while until it happens again.
Dictionary is set to EN-MW without user input.
Dictionary remains set to EN-US.
I do not have Firefox Sync enabled. I believe it might be picking up something from the OS language, but I'm not positive. I've never seen this behavior on other OSes.
