Any way to get a confirmation prompt before adding a word to the dictionary?

Posted

It's too easy to accidentally click the "Add to Dictionary" item from the spell check dropdown. Is there any way to force a confirmation box any time I click that? "Are you sure you want to add Xxxx to the custom dictionary?

That way I wouldn't have to keep editing the thing to remove the words I put in there by mistake...

Sorry, Firefox doesn't have a hidden feature for a feature such as that, and I am not aware of an add-on that would add that feature, either.

The only way would be to hide this entry in the context menu with code in userChrome.css, but that way you won't be able to add new words.
You can also try to move it to a more comfortable position with the menu editor extension (don't know if that is possible).


@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

#spell-add-to-dictionary { display:none!important; }

The Menu Editor extension works great for this. I just dragged it down so it's under the "Delete" option. Should solve my issue.

Thanks.
