Where is the Swedish-dictionary in language pack? It used to be there. I'm using a US version, but would like a swedish spellcheck

Posted

I remember that that on previous versions of Firefox you could get a Swedish spell-check + dictionary by simply "adding" a new dictionary when writing text, through: [*right click*]>[Languages]>[Add Dictionaries...].

Chosen solution

There is this Swedish dictionary from the Open Office project.

You will have to extract the two files (sv_SE.aff and sv_SE.dic) in the /dictionaries folder in that ZIP archive and install the dictionary manually by copying the files to the dictionary folder in the Firefox installation folder.

exactly! ...but in this list, I can not find the Swedish dictionary :S If I search for it I get nothing. After Swahili comes Tamil, but no Swedish. So, probably there is some link missing

I tried the recommended solution, but it did not download a zip pkg as indicated. It downloaded a .oxt file instead. I installed the language pack to Open Office where it installed the dictionary, but have no method of getting that dictionary into Firefox! Please help!

The .oxt file is a ZIP archive and you can open that archive in a (ZIP) file manager and extract the sv_SE.aff and sv_SE.dic files in the dictionaries folder in that archive.

You may need to rename the file and give it a .zip file extension.
Copy the sv_SE.aff and sv_SE.dic file to the dictionaries folder in the Firefox program folder (C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\)

cor-el...THANKYOU! I needed to convert the file to .zip as I downloaded it and then it worked like a charm!

If anyone interested in the Swedish dictionary (svenska ordlista), I have backed up the dictionary in the .xpi format using the Febe addon from a previous Firefox version which you can find in the link below:

Please share with everyone.
