Description Peter Janakiev 2007-11-20 09:09:38 EST
Description of problem:
The new users on the system do not get spell chekcing capabilities with
Epiphany, but if the user is kept from F7 there is spell chekcing (for enlighs
only). I have checked on Firefox - it works okay, i add a dictionary and i can
use it, i then delete it and it is no longer available. But on epiphany i have
only english and when I add another language (bg-BG for example) and i change
the prefs (about:config ->) to bg_BG I loose the spellchekcing at all (cannot go
back to english even for the users I have had it for before) - I set it to en_US
but no spell checking in the forms. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new user on the system.
2. Login with gnome session with this user and open epiphany, go to a web page
with a form
3. No spell checking even for english, let alone other languages (installed in
Actual results:
No spell checking for the new users even if we set spellcheck.dictionary to
en_US (installed by default with firefox)

Expected results:
Spell checking working at least by default in english

Additional info:
I have removed and installed  both packages again - just in case i have messed
up some config file and intentionalyy checked on newly created users on the
system to reduce the risk of me mistaking something.

Please ignore this bug report, it was a dictionary file encoding issue. 

Still the default behavior for epiphany is to be spell-check disabled
(layout.spellckechDefault -> 0) which I am sure was 1 on F7.
