Where is the Swedish-dictionary in language pack? It used to be there. I'm using a US version, but would like a swedish spellcheck

I remember that that on previous versions of Firefox you could get a Swedish spell-check + dictionary by simply "adding" a new dictionary when writing text, through: [*right click*]>[Languages]>[Add Dictionaries...].

There is this Swedish dictionary from the Open Office project.

You will have to extract the two files (sv_SE.aff and sv_SE.dic) in the /dictionaries folder in that ZIP archive and install the dictionary manually by copying the files to the dictionary folder in the Firefox installation folder.

You still should be able to do that. It will take you to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/language-tools/

exactly! ...but in this list, I can not find the Swedish dictionary Smiley Frustrated If I search for it I get nothing. After Swahili comes Tamil, but no Swedish. So, probably there is some link missing

I tried the recommended solution, but it did not download a zip pkg as indicated. It downloaded a .oxt file instead. I installed the language pack to Open Office where it installed the dictionary, but have no method of getting that dictionary into Firefox! Please help!

The .oxt file is a ZIP archive and you can open that archive in a (ZIP) file manager and extract the sv_SE.aff and sv_SE.dic files in the dictionaries folder in that archive.

You may need to rename the file and give it a .zip file extension.
Copy the sv_SE.aff and sv_SE.dic file to the dictionaries folder in the Firefox program folder (C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\)

cor-el...THANKYOU! I needed to convert the file to .zip as I downloaded it and then it worked like a charm!

If anyone interested in the Swedish dictionary (svenska ordlista), I have backed up the dictionary in the .xpi format using the Febe addon from a previous Firefox version which you can find in the link below:
