When I copy paste stuff, and who knows when, I see a bunch of word suggestions at the top of the right click context menu, with an option to enter them into a dictionary, whatever and wherever that is. I see nothing at all in the settings corresponding to this, and just want to completely disable that BS: It's just garbage in the way of me doing my tasks. How do I disable this, and/or the entire spell checker and dictionary, etc. if necessary? I know how to spell. Don't need it. Thanks.

Note that some websites provide their own spell checker, especially if you use a rich text editor, and in that case you need to check its settings.

You can disable the Firefox spell checker via the Settings page.

Actually that didn't fix it when I tried it then tested, but now it's working. I guess it didn't stick until I hit a new tab or something. Dunno. Thanks. Hadn't seen that spell check option. Thought it was something entirely different, so didn't even look for that. :)

You may have saved this option as part of the "Site settings" (content-prefs.sqlite). The spelling checker is enabled if [X] "Check Spelling" in the right-click context menu has a checkmark.
