Hello, I am from Hellas (Greece) and I have installed an English-Greek dictionary, these two languages are 100% non conflicting since we have different alphabet thus the dictionary automatically spell checks both languages at once.
I used to have this dictionary default and it worked perfectly until a recent update keeps changing the spelling dictionary to the default, which is the local language -> just Greek.
If I change the spelling dictionary it will work until I restart mozilla (or sometimes until I restart the pc). This is kinda irritating at worst, not a big issue, but having to change my selected dictionary every time is ridiculous.
See the attached image to understand what Mozilla does by default.
The solution is given below but I'll write it here:
1) Go to about:config (hit I accept the risk there)
2) Right click on a blank area
3) Select: New->String
4) Name that new string as: spellchecker.dictionary
5) Set the value of it the name of the spell checker, in my case it is: English & Greek
6) You are done!
To see the name of the string you need, simply install a dictionary you want, go to a page that you can write something (lets say facebook) and right click, select "spell checking" and then scroll to see the dictionary options you have, the name of your dictionary is the one you see in that little drop down menu like in the image I provided.
