How to see which hyphenation dictionaries are integrated into Firefox?

Posted

I'm trying to figure out which hyphenation dictionaries are integrated into which version of Firefox. On https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/hyphens, at the bottom, there is a table, but I'm having difficulty reading it. Should I read it as Firefox Win has Afrikaans as of 43.8, Galician as of 43.9 and Polish as of 43.31? So it is independent of the language of Firefox itself (e.g. I live in The Netherlands but have an English FF)?

Also, why is the RH-side half of the table filled with primarily question marks? I'd expect the Mozilla folks to know which Firefox Android contains which hyphenation dictionary?

Thanks in advance.

Chosen solution

I found out another way, through a Javascript test script. The table should indeed be read as that of v. 43.31, FF comes with all the hyphenation dictionaries included in the table, except Czech.

There are errors in the table, because Chrome 64 still does not support CSS hyphenation, let alone Chrome 55. And the question marks to the right under FF remains odd. But I entered a report about the MDN page.

You can check the README files in the source code via DXR to see how it works.

See the locale pages for the included dictionaries.

Use this resource: link to see the builtin files in Firefox:

Question owner

@cor-el -- That doesn't answer my question, unfortunately. Let me rephrase it, because maybe I wasn't clear.

I am a web designer, working on a multilingual website. I want to know whether the current Firefox version has all the hyphenation dictionaries mentioned on the MDN page built in. Or do modern Swedish FF versions only contain the Swedish dictionary, to name one example?

And what about my second question, about the right half of the table?
