Lock spell checker language setting to US English?

已張貼

Every time I start Firefox, the language is set to UK English. I live in the US and the spell checker flags words that are spelled right for the US, but if I make a typo and use the UK spelling, it passes that (and I sometimes miss the typo).

I change the setting to US English and it's fine until I reboot the computer, then I have to do it all again. I admit this is a very minor problem, but it is really frustrating at times - I count on my spell checker because I do make a lot of typos and it helps to catch them (strange neurological condition I won't go into - kind of like dyslexia in the fingers).

Is there some way to FORCE Firefox to start in US English every time? Some line I could add to the about:config for instance?

OS: Linux Ubuntu 14.04LTS Using Gnome (old style) desktop only, Firefox 39.03, I usually have Thunderbird 31.8 and OpenOffice 4.1 all open at the same time, on dual monitors.

Note: Some software, like Advanced SystemCare with Surfing Protection, can protect files in the Firefox profile folder against changes. If you have such software then check the settings or uninstall this software.

What is the value of the spellchecker.dictionary pref on the about:config page?

Sometimes Firefox gets confused by the language code that has an underscore instead of an hyphen (en_US versus en-US). I assume that your Linux distribution comes with a lot of installed OpenOffice (or LibreOffice) dictionaries.
