Firefox always uses US settings instead of UK

I have set Firefox Developer Edition (Windows 10 20H2 & 21H2 and Ubuntu 18.04 & 20.04 installations, always kept up to date), to use English (United Kingdom) settings in preferences. I have installed the UK Dictionary and made it the default for spellchecking. The Windows installation is also supposed to be respecting the OS regional settings. Firefox seems to be totally disregarding the settings and always giving me US as the location and US English for the spellcheck. This has been an issue for months if not years. I understand that many pages will be US biased, that is not a problem. The problems are that my country preference is being detected as US, and that I can not seem to get Firefox to actually use the UK Dictionary. I can supply additional information as required

It seems you installed the English (GB) language pack and not the English (GB) dictionary. This is a misunderstanding we regularly see happen.

You can look here for dictionaries:

Note that for spell check you need a dictionary. A language pack provides string translations for the user interface.

Hi cor-el, Thanks for the quick reply. I hadn't realised that Marco Pinto's British English Dictionary was no longer installed after the last rebuild of my PC. Looking good so far, 'realised' is no longer being signalled as incorrect. I originally saw this problem some time ago, and installed the British English Dictionary, but the setting was not retained. Never got around to troubleshooting it further. Marked your reply as the solution.
