Description Carl Roth 2008-05-19 21:43:08 UTC
Description of problem:

My firefox profile is set to use en_US as the default language.  In text boxes,
it insists that I spell 'behaviour' instead of 'behavior'.  Is firefox pulling
entries from the wrong dictionary?

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

firefox-3.0-0.60.beta5.fc9.x86_64

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

I am having exactly the same problem. This may be related to bug 439598.

The problem occurs only in Firefox; other programs (gedit, etc.) work correctly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
firefox-3.0-0.60.beta5.fc9.x86_64

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 9 and updates.
2. Start Firefox.
3. Type words in US English, such as color, humor, etc., and words in non-US
English, such as colour, humour, etc.

Actual results:
The US English words are marked with red dotted underlines.

Expected results:
The non-US English words should be marked with red dotted underlines.
