The Language selector menu from the right-click menu does not select the chosen language to use for spell checking.

I have only 1 dictionary installed, the British english dictionary, but both United kingdom and United states appear in the language menu. Selecting either of these does not work, there's no checkmark or anything next to the selected language. The spell checker works except for US/GB word spelling differences.

This started a few months ago and despite having all updates and even trying a new profile nothing seems to get the language selector to work.

About 2 weeks ago my ads on websites started appearing in German rather than English. Also, notice from websites asking if I accept the use of cookies now appear in German (I think that's what they're saying). I don't know what I may have done to cause this. How can I switch these back to English?

If you go to options/advance/ The check box for check spelling is clear and even when you engage the feature, close the browser and reopen it, it shows this feature is active but if you intentionally misspell anything it does not highlite the mistake. This is a serious problem and I am in the final pre beta stage with Windows 10 and the new release is due [ RTM ] on the 27th or 29th so you guys need to correct this problem cause it does not happen on my windows 8 or 8.1

I cannot get this sorted, I live in Vietnam, that's it, I don't speak the lingo + therefore I've obviously never selected any options, or anything in V'mese, but I'm plagued by it!! It's sporadic, yahoo homepage, google stuff + so on, I went to hook up my gmail to a new mail client I've got + the gmail stuff was all in V'mese + that was that. I'm no tech guy, no one at support is either, from what I can make out, is setting things up in English, just English, so involved?? Apparently it is, anyone got any ideas I'd be most grateful............either that or I'll move, or maybe just learn the bloody language!?!?!

The language selector menu from the right-click menu doesn't print out correctly the language name of the spellchecker dictionary.

I have installed the venetan dictionary (language code ISO639-3 vec) I've created (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/dithionario-de-lengua-v%C3%A8neta/?src=ss) but in the right-click menu appears the language "vec" alongside my default "English (United States)". Why doesn't it spell out "Venetan"? Is there something I did wrong?

I'm a native Dutch speaker, and also read and write a lot in English. Hence I have two dictionaries installed for spell checking: Dutch and English.

I often find myself using one language on one page, and the other on the next, thus having to switch the spell checker dictionary between Dutch and English all the time.

What would be VERY convenient, is either

1. The possibility to use two (or any number) dictionaries at the same time.

Or better yet:

2. The possibility to 'auto detect' the current language, and use that dictionary.

This auto detect thing could simply consist of seeing what dictionary results in the least number of detected spelling errors, and use that.

Thanks for your consideration, this sounds like a rather simple feature to me, yet I've been missing it for many years, and I have in fact found quite some similar requests from other people throughout the internet as well! It would make a great addition to Firefox!

FF 41.0.2 on a Ubuntu 14.04 machine

Two or three updates ago, Firefox started changing the spellchecker language settings. I'd set it to German and it'd remember at most for a few forum posts etc before switching back to English. Sometimes also the other way round though, it seems rather random.

Also, when trying to set it to the desired language, it often doesn't work the first time, I immediately need to call up the context menu a second time and select the desired language again.
