Are you sure it is not something in your profile configuration? Are you able to reproduce the issue, when you create new profile (run firefox -no-remote -P on the command line to get into Profile Manager dialog to create a new one)?

Also what is the output of this command?

grep -H spellchecker .mozilla/firefox/*/prefs.js

Thank you in advance for any reply

I am able to reproduce the issue when using a newly created profile.

The output of the command is

.mozilla/firefox/bz6ymybc.default/prefs.js:user_pref("spellchecker.dictionary", "en_ZW");

The output of the command for the newly created profile is:

.mozilla/firefox/lk235602.Default User/prefs.js:user_pref("spellchecker.dictionary", "en_HK");

If I edit prefs.js and change the value of spellchecker.dictionary to en_US, the problem seems to be resolved.
