Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 447482
somehow my thunderbird language was set to de_AT
Last modified: 2018-04-11 05:06:00 EDT
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I don't really have time to follow up on this much, but I just wipegraded my
system to fedora-9, but copied over my ~/.thunderbird from an f8 system.
Somehow the spell check language got set to de_AT during the transition, from
the en_US it should have been. I put the probability at 1% that somehow I'm
responsible via user-error, and 99% that this is a real bug.
I see the same problem in both Mozilla apps that I use regularly: Firefox & Thunderbird. It should have been en_US but was set to de_AT (which happens to be the first entry in the selection list in Firefox's spellchecker.) Perversely, in about:config, it says spellchecker.dictionary was "user set" to de_AT - which it most certainly was not. If you default it in Firefox, it blanks out, but resets to de_AT on next startup.
