On my Debian 9 with Firefox 61 every word is marked as misspelled, except numbers (right now, currently as I'm typing).
Things I've tried:
- Remove en-US dictionary and return it (Had to hard delete the files, as a simple removal of the extension did not remove files or menu option).
- Add a second dictionary - it added them in the language menu and extensions tab but I don't see the files at
/usr/lib/firefox/dictionaries/. I tried this both through the addons and preferences.
- Remove firefox (
sudo apt-get remove firefox firefox-esr chromiumto make sure no alternative is installed) and install again.
- Clear data (all of it).
None of the above works. I noticed removing/installing dictionaries from the extension page in
firefox does not affect the actual dictionary folder, even though the extension appears and the select language menu updates.
How do I get spell check to work?
Pardon any spelling mistakes.
