Hi, I'm trying to get the en-GB dictionary to silently install (for network deployment) into firefox, I've got the dictionary xpi, it's file name is ID, and it's dropped into the extensions folder. Firefox detects it and after changing the autoenablescope setting, it is automatically enabled within FF. However it is not actually active and working as it should (no spellcheck or underlining). By installing through the normal add-ons page it does work, of course. But not when installed and activated the silent way.

Any help would be appreciated.

It seems a bit rude to report this as a "bug" on bugtracker, and I suspect there is a different mechanism for discussing words for inclusion/exclusion in the default dictionary. But my google fu is failing me in this instance. At any rate, "unbeknownst" is not considered valid by the dictionary in my 58.0.2 Firefox build (on Ubuntu if that makes any difference). Seems to be a valid adjective of "unbeknown" according to Merriam Webster. Please let me know where this should be reported/discussed.

An example would be "criticised" which shows up as incorrect with a suggested spelling of "criticized" which is not the British spelling of the word.

When users write our brand on various websites, forums etc..., many users misspell it. We would like to add that word in dictionary, to be available for everyone and spell checker to suggest the right word. Is that possible?

Dutch spelling check not taking into account contractions of words belonging together

In English words have to be separated by spaces even if you use them together as composite concept. For example the concept "spelling check" is a composition of spelling and check. In Dutch those words should be spelled without space: "tekstcontrole" is correct, "tekst controle" isn't. The Firefox spell check is only recognizing the separate words (tekst and controle) and is underlining the contraction (tekstcontrole) as incorrect when in fact only the latter is correct. This is not an exception, in fact most sentences have such words, so using the Firefox spelling check in Dutch always results in lots of red lines.
