I cannot find a solution anywhere in the support forums or by searching the web. The default language on my spellchecker keeps changing...all the time. I've tried many things, and nothing works. One person tried to help but stopped helping after a point. Here is my problem in detail:

Why is this so hard, and why can no one seem to know what the problem is?  :(

Please help! How do I fix this? Thank you!

FYI I also see apparently the same or a very problem.

I am currently using a Cannonical build of Fx 38 presumably en-US I have other languages available including English (United Kingdom)

Even within this text area my language as used and shown on right click will revert unpredictably back to en-us . The flip is not just at Firefox Restart it may not even require change of tab or reloading the tab. It has flipped part way through typing this message.

I have made no attempt to troubleshoot this issue. I have not checked with other languages. I currently have


installed. I will uninstall the 2nd one listed above, see if that makes a difference
