I've been using Firefox Quantum for over a month now on Ubuntu 18.04. However, the extensions Grammarly and LastPass which I need the most do not work as expected. LastPass does not automatically sign in nor does the overlay interface work. I have to right-click on the extension button everytime and launch lastpass in a separate window to Sign in. Nor do I get a prompt to save the password when I create a user account on a website.

Next, Grammarly fails to work - and when it works, Firefox notifies that this extension is causing slowdowns, why?

I've had Firefox installed for months, but this weekend the spell checker/auto correct (red squiggly lines under the words I spell wrong), has stopped working. I haven't installed any new plugins/add ons or changed anything in Firefox.

I've even completely re-installed Firefox this morning in the hope to solve the problem - no luck.

I'm on Mac OSX High Sierra (10.13.6).

The tick box to check my spelling as I type is checked.

Screenshot shows I have my correct language selected.

I'm all out of ideas - please help :D

I've installed the British English Dictionary and Language pack. They are confirmed as active in Add-on Manager. Using the latest version of Firefox at present. Version 61.0. Checking for updates from About finds no newer version.

Yet, still Firefox insists on trying to make everything American English. How can I stop it doing that?

Is the only way to completely remove it and start again from the beginning?

Windows 10.

I have noticed that Firefox spell check sometimes doesn't detect simple mistakes that you would think it would be easier for it to suggest the right word.

Examples:

"Mistery" it suggests Mister, Mister y, Misery, Misters and Mastery but it doesn't suggest Mystery

also in words like

"Dissapear" it just suggests Dispensary and no Disappear

Is there anything that needs to be fixed on the way the spell check works or what?

Spell checking does not work in Firefox Developer Edition. How can I fix this?

When I am entering text into a text box (for example a textarea html tag) with Firefox Developer Edition 61.0b2 (64-bit), and many previous versions, every single word is underlined as red. When I right click and select the language, US English is the only option. To begin to debug this I started firefox in safe mode from the command line. The first time I place my cursor in a text box, the following appears in my terminal:

error: file:///usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/dictionaries/en_US.aff: cannot open

error: file:///usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/dictionaries/en_US.dic: cannot open

error: file:///usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/dictionaries/en_US.aff: cannot open


This seems like something one might expect to see considering the the spell checking problem. However, if I run: "ls -l /usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/dictionaries/" on my system I get the following:

-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3090 May 9 23:34 en_US.aff

-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 545233 May 9 23:34 en_US.dic


So the dictionary files are definitely there. Furthermore I have opened them to make sure they are populated with the words from the English language.

To remedy the issue I have tried "resetting" firefox so that I have a new profile, but this did nothing. Interestingly enough, when I run the non-developer edition of firefox, the spell checking works as expected.

How can I go about fixing this issue?

It seems a bit rude to report this as a "bug" on bugtracker, and I suspect there is a different mechanism for discussing words for inclusion/exclusion in the default dictionary. But my google fu is failing me in this instance. At any rate, "unbeknownst" is not considered valid by the dictionary in my 58.0.2 Firefox build (on Ubuntu if that makes any difference). Seems to be a valid adjective of "unbeknown" according to Merriam Webster. Please let me know where this should be reported/discussed.

Hello,

The problem I have is that if I misspell a word instead of replacing it the replacement is added to the text or if you hit spacebar to start the next word the suggestion is added giving you a duplicate. Chrome works with it just fine as well as Libre Office, the Facebook for Windows app (of course) and other desktop (non "Windows 10" apps). please see the screenshots attached.

You'll see the word jupiter is suggested to the capitalized. I hit the space bar and when the suggestion is handed to Firefox it appends it instead of replacing the word that needs correction or completed.

In this sentence I'll select a suggestion to complete a word that I am typing, here: constconstruction (see attached images)

Is this something you guys can fix?

Hi, according to that article ( https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-use-firefox-spell-checker#w_correcting-misspelled-words ) "Note: Added words apply to all your dictionaries." But if I add let's say "Cronocrímenes" and then I write "Cronocrimenes" after adding it to my dic., if I right click the first, correct spell, it is not suggested. Is it normal?

I want to know if there is some kind of addon that allows as in Chrome Internet check. S if I write an actor or director's name the wrong way, let's say "Hitchock", the addon tell me the correct way. Regards.

I have read all related post and tried the suggested solutions but didn't manage to solve the issue. In fact when I right-click in any text box containing more than one line, the menu doesn't even list the choice "check spelling", as explained here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-use-firefox-spell-checker

I just installed Firefox (53.0.3) and I'm on Windows 10.

I am a linguist and I am coming back to Mozilla because, from previous experiences, it handles several languages much better than other browsers! Provided that I manage to activtae the language management option...... so thanks in advance for your help!
