British Dictionary, is this the best Firefox can do?

Britain is made up of Wales, Scott's, Northern Ireland and the English so how the hell do you have a British Dictionary.

I find in my reading on the net that the United States of (no heritage) America treat this subject with contempt.

I have posted endlessly to have Firefox's English Dictionary to be correctly labelled as American English, or English for the English, you would think that all the heads in Firefox's programmers and community could get this one round their minds.

English is a language spoken by people traditionally from ENGLAND!

American English is spoken by people living in the U.S.

British Language is a joke, totally wrong and yet again shows how the Americans steal heritage and label it as their own.

IDIOTS!!!!!!!!!!!!! there is no such thing as a British dictionary

Troubleshooting information

Highly insulting coming from a bunch of mongrels!

I want to know if there is a way to search through all the sites that you have blocked, or allow access to. Many time I will block a site only to find out that I do wan to allow them to be able to store cookies. Right now I can not find a way to search for the site, and not all sites start with www. :( I know that there is a search function for Saved Passwords, but I can not find one for Cookie Exceptions. Is there one? If not can I request one for the future releases? :)

I have an issue with Firefox and multiple users on my computer. There are two users setup and I'm running Win7 Ultimate x64. When the other user logs in, my settings in Firefox get screwed up somehow. Even if that user does not open Firefox.

Examples of problems this causes:

Gmail - Cannot load the standard interface, however it will load the HTML only interface.

Facebook - Cannot post anything.

vBulletin Forums - Some forums will no longer normally load - a text-only version loads as if I was browsing from a mobile device.

There may be other issues, but these are the main ones. If I clear my cookies, cache and browsing and download history, then restart Firefox, everything works again.

This seems to happen most often when the other user logs in, and uses Firefox to log on to their Gmail account.

How can I fix this?

I've checked the options/applications and there are no settings in there for microsoft documents. There was one for adobe which was defaulted to something like "open within FF"

this evening when I started Firefox, it updated the themes/persona. Normally, this is not a problem, but this time, the scene has been applied to the bottom status bar, as well. I've used personas for a while, but the bottom bar has always been a pale grey. Now it is part of the persona and although it looks great, it essentially works as a narrow stripe and narrow stripes can trigger migraines for those of us who live with them. Which it promptly did.

Is there any way for me to disable the persona on the bottom status bar while keeping it along the top? I'd hate to go back to the default - it's sort of boring after having fun with the personas, but I can't have Firefox triggering migraines everyday.

If I go to my gaming websites (pogo and gamehouse); facebook; yahoo messenger; depressiontribe.com; and a few other sites; after about 30 minutes, firefox locks up, taking my internet connection, and several windows *.exe files along with it (tskmgr.exe is one) and once reconnected to the internet, I cannot send a crash report. Just gives error message that report could not be sent. I run Windows XP Professional on a Dell laptop with Viper (Sunbelt) All in one virus and internet protection which scans nightly and so far no threats have shown up. I have tried disabling all the plugin's and addon's and that just made it where firefox would not load at all. I have updated my Adobe Flash Player, Shockwave Player, deleted and re-set up my internet/network connections....I do not know what to do now. Very frustrated...please help?

I have searched for hours and still nothing so I will ask.

I set up a website for my photos and I embedded a music file (wma). The page background is black and I added this "style="filter:xray;" to get a nice black/gray control buttons panel. This works great in IE8, but in FF 3.6.7, it shows the player in the standard white and blue button colors (which look like shit).

Is there a similar code or anyway to get the wmp controls to show up in a different color?

Thanks,
