I was changing my language setting in Firefox (only) from English (US) to English (UK)(the only other option was English-Canada) as I am in Australia and we use the United Kingdom spelling anyway. Within Firefox itself (not emails or off site pages) it STILL insists that COLOUR is spelt wrong & it allows me to spell NITE (not day) incorrectly. i have an Oxford dictionary in front of me & can reference a WEBSTERS all day long.
There are many, many countries that have English as their primary language, Ghana is one & some South Pacific Islands (now the French have buggered off) The Seychelles off Africa have English as their official language & you can bet 'they' would have odd spellings.
So no English (Australian) that's why the word Galah doesn't even get a look in. A Galah, by the way, is a VERY common Australian bird & in anyone's language. I'm guessing there is NO American word for Cockatoo too.
I will have to look that up in my Funk & Wagnalls.
Funk & Wagnalls was an American publisher known for its reference works, including A Standard Dictionary of the English Language, and the Funk & Wagnalls Standard (reference Wikipedia).
Well, well, not only Webster trying ton undermine (Bastardize) (its actually S not a Z) standard English but Fucken Wagnall was in on it too!
Anneeeway just a heads up. using Firefox Browser (64-bit) on a Windows 7 Ultimate (Service Pack 1) I guess support for Win7 will be gone soon anyway Microsoft will see to that.
Looking for a suitable LINUX replacement. Thanks, bye.
