Spell checking does not work in Firefox Developer Edition. How can I fix this?

When I am entering text into a text box (for example a textarea html tag) with Firefox Developer Edition 61.0b2 (64-bit), and many previous versions, every single word is underlined as red. When I right click and select the language, US English is the only option. To begin to debug this I started firefox in safe mode from the command line. The first time I place my cursor in a text box, the following appears in my terminal:

error: file:///usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/dictionaries/en_US.aff: cannot open

error: file:///usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/dictionaries/en_US.dic: cannot open

error: file:///usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/dictionaries/en_US.aff: cannot open


This seems like something one might expect to see considering the the spell checking problem. However, if I run: "ls -l /usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/dictionaries/" on my system I get the following:

-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3090 May 9 23:34 en_US.aff

-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 545233 May 9 23:34 en_US.dic


So the dictionary files are definitely there. Furthermore I have opened them to make sure they are populated with the words from the English language.

To remedy the issue I have tried "resetting" firefox so that I have a new profile, but this did nothing. Interestingly enough, when I run the non-developer edition of firefox, the spell checking works as expected.

How can I go about fixing this issue?

Ever since installing (about 1 week ago, FF 49.0.1) and despite the fact that under Preverences>>Advanced >> General >> Check my spelling as I type the item is checked correctly and a second way of achieving same via about:config (layout.spellcheckDefault) displays the correct value (1), the spellchecker refuses to work at all. Any remedies?
