Why can't I check the spelling option (en_GB) in input boxes with Firefox Nightly?

Posted

Hi, I am using firefox nightly 71.0a1 (2019-10-06) (64-bit). I can't enable the check spelling option in input boxes. I am also unable to install en_GB dictionary in firefox developer edition, which says "This add-on is not compatible with your version of Firefox.".

How can I fix this problem?

I am using Arch Linux x86_64 ... And the firefox nightly package came from the official website because there's no available package in the AUR for en_US...

Sorry the package in the AUR is only en_US.

The UK language pack doesn't seem to work with the downloaded nightly (which is also en_GB).
