Dutch spelling check not taking into account contractions of words belonging together

In English words have to be separated by spaces even if you use them together as composite concept. For example the concept "spelling check" is a composition of spelling and check. In Dutch those words should be spelled without space: "tekstcontrole" is correct, "tekst controle" isn't. The Firefox spell check is only recognizing the separate words (tekst and controle) and is underlining the contraction (tekstcontrole) as incorrect when in fact only the latter is correct. This is not an exception, in fact most sentences have such words, so using the Firefox spelling check in Dutch always results in lots of red lines.

Hi,

Its a suggestion from my end, I would request to please add the company into your database dictionary.

While I recently went across the company "ThyssenKrupp", when it was typed in the word as a suggestion is being shown as "Bankruptcy". Could you please add company into your database dictionary.  I do know it can be added into the dictionary by myself, but feels such suggestions shouldn't be appearing. 

A picture has been attached too.

Its only a mere a suggestion.

My question is whether there is an addon to auto correct the misspelled words written in a web page (i.e., in the composer box of Gmail,...). As a reference, Thunderbird has the the addon "mms Auto Correct" to do that.

Note: I am aware that Firefox has a spell checker that marks the misspelled words according with the installed dictionaries. What I need is to automatically correct them.

The Language selector menu from the right-click menu does not select the chosen language to use for spell checking.

I have only 1 dictionary installed, the British english dictionary, but both United kingdom and United states appear in the language menu. Selecting either of these does not work, there's no checkmark or anything next to the selected language. The spell checker works except for US/GB word spelling differences.

This started a few months ago and despite having all updates and even trying a new profile nothing seems to get the language selector to work.

This is more of a complaint than a question.

The integrated spell checker in Firefox really, really sucks. It things that "Robert's" is different than "Robert" AND you cannot add "Robert's" to the dictionary. It thinks "ROBERT" is different than "Robert."

GOOD spell checkers are case-insensitive when checking a word ("Robert" = "ROBERT" = "RObert" etc), they know what plurals and possessives are ("Robert's" is not a spelling error). I could go on.

The original "ABCspellcheck" (?) addon was a much, much better spell checker.

When I type I make the same mistakes over and over. for instance I want to type " the" but it comes out "hte", I want to type "with" and it comes out " wiht". You get the picture. One day while correcting my "hte" to "the" I right clicked on the mouse and found a check spelling option on the drop down. Some how I changed "hte" to a real word and now there is no red line under it to help me see my error. I only have this problem in Gmail and as I checked into it I was told it was my browser. Currently as I look at what I just typed there are red lines under "wiht" and "Gmail" but not under "hte". I would love to be able to change "hte" back to a misspelled word so it has a red line under it and I can remedy the spelling. HELP!!!!

My PC (running XP) died recently and since setting up this new one (running Windows 7) I can't get Firefox's spell checker to work.

I have the 'check spelling as I type' ticked in Firefox's advanced settings, and I have also download and installed the British Languge Pack add-on, but still it doesn't work.

The problem seems to be that I don;t have the usual 'Check speling' option when I right click in a text box (see attached)

I have Ubuntu 12 and the latest version of Firefox for it. spellcheck.dictionary keeps getting reset to en_GB How do I force it to stay en_US? Lots of people having this issue, and the responses are all a bunch of head-scratching. There has to be a way to make Firefox stop arbitrarily changing this setting.

Spell check is working in this text box but when I type words into mail.com webmail email compose form, spell checking does not work.

I have already changed the about:config option so that single line text boxes are spell-checked.

Is there some kind of JavaScript option that disables spell-checking? If so then how do I disable this? I want my emails to be spell-checked.

Every time I start Firefox, the language is set to UK English. I live in the US and the spell checker flags words that are spelled right for the US, but if I make a typo and use the UK spelling, it passes that (and I sometimes miss the typo).

I change the setting to US English and it's fine until I reboot the computer, then I have to do it all again. I admit this is a very minor problem, but it is really frustrating at times - I count on my spell checker because I do make a lot of typos and it helps to catch them (strange neurological condition I won't go into - kind of like dyslexia in the fingers).

Is there some way to FORCE Firefox to start in US English every time? Some line I could add to the about:config for instance?

OS: Linux Ubuntu 14.04LTS Using Gnome (old style) desktop only, Firefox 39.03, I usually have Thunderbird 31.8 and OpenOffice 4.1 all open at the same time, on dual monitors.
