Comment 4 Mattias Ellert 2012-07-12 22:48:43 UTC
Issue still present in F17 (firefox-13.0.1-1.fc17).

Comment 5 Martin Stransky 2012-08-06 14:13:19 UTC
Can you please retest with upstream binary?

Comment 6 Mattias Ellert 2012-08-08 11:26:17 UTC
The upstream binary I downloaded from mozilla.org appears to be a bit broken. It doesn't find the installed system dictionaries and only has an entry for "English (United States)" in the list. Since there in only one entry in the list I can not tell whether it is sorted or not. A list of one always appears to be sorted.

Comment 7 Mattias Ellert 2013-01-18 17:42:20 UTC
Issue still present in F18 (firefox-18.0-1.fc18)

Comment 8 Thorsten Leemhuis 2013-03-02 07:21:11 UTC
@Martin Stransky, how can we cat this longstanding and kind of small, but annoying bug resolved? I still see it in firefox-19.0-1.fc18.x86_64 and thunderbird-17.0.3-1.fc18.x86_64 

Do you want us to test upstream? Is that really relevant, as it seems it doesn't use the dictionaries installed in the system anyway and one has to manually install dicts first.

BTW, Bug 439598 might be a dupe of this (or the other way around)

Comment 9 Martin Stransky 2013-03-04 15:15:06 UTC
Jan Horak is going to look at it.

Comment 10 Florian Weimer 2013-10-29 07:46:02 UTC
Also present in firefox-24.0-1.fc19.x86_64 and thunderbird-24.0-3.fc19.x86_64.

Comment 11 Jan Horak 2014-02-03 16:49:25 UTC
There's an upstream bug for this: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=752474
We're going to track this issue it there.
