British Dictionary, is this the best Firefox can do?

Britain is made up of Wales, Scott's, Northern Ireland and the English so how the hell do you have a British Dictionary.

I find in my reading on the net that the United States of (no heritage) America treat this subject with contempt.

I have posted endlessly to have Firefox's English Dictionary to be correctly labelled as American English, or English for the English, you would think that all the heads in Firefox's programmers and community could get this one round their minds.

English is a language spoken by people traditionally from ENGLAND!

American English is spoken by people living in the U.S.

British Language is a joke, totally wrong and yet again shows how the Americans steal heritage and label it as their own.

IDIOTS!!!!!!!!!!!!! there is no such thing as a British dictionary

Get on the line! Contact Cambridge immediately and demand a correction!! See "New! 40,000 audio pronunciations" on the following page and inform Cambridge of their horrendous error:

And if it wasn't for "America" back in the 1940's, "Britain" might not even be speaking English now. Sprechen sie Deutsch?

I'd be happier if Firefox would include the (British) English dictionary by default rather than having it as an add-on, when you download the (British) English language (en-gb) version of Firefox. Which I do.

It is about licensing that not all locale can have a dictionary included. From the readme file:

This dictionary was initially based on a subset of the original English wordlist created by Kevin Atkinson for Pspell and Aspell and thus is covered by his original LGPL licence.
