I have Firefox 60.3.0esr in English (US-us). I can use the default spell checker, English.

I installed the French dictionary via https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/language-tools/ and I can see it in about:addons. However, I cannot select the language via the context menu, it's not even there.

Has anyone ran in to this, is this related to the version of FF used by Debian testing (buster) ? (I have this same setup with Debian stable and it works fine).

Thanks for any help

Do you see the dictionary listed on the Dictionaries tab (Add-ons -> Dirctionaries)?

Note that current ESR is 60.4.0.
