Rated 3.1 out of 5
3.1 Stars out of 5
- by Wayneyp, 6 years agoRated 5 out of 5Any time I install a fresh profile of FF (whether on a new device or because I've lost patience cleaning my profile up), I usually install OpenMedSpel. For some reason, last week when I got a new profile, I did not install it. I do a lot of posting on medical related sites, or of medical items and it's great having a spell checker/dictionary that actually recognizes words I type quite often. I am glad I finally realized my problem today and remedied it! Excellent add-on for anyone who uses a lot of med terms.
- by Firefox user 10751924, 6 years agoRated 2 out of 5Not updated for the latest version of Firefox. This should be anticipated, they don't make a secret of new versions, plus future versions can be "pre-approved" in the add-on.
Finally, I find it highly ironic that a spell"ceck" app can't spell their own name right.
- by Edo, 8 years agoRated 5 out of 5Love this dictionary, but would be great if it could be updated for latest firefox (7.x).
When I install, it says it was successful, but does not show up in list of dictionaries.
- by gatitonecio, 9 years agoRated 2 out of 5I've been using this extension since I started using Firefox and love it! The thing is I install this version with Firefox 4 and it doesn't appear with the other available dictionaries. I can see it active in the addons FF4 page, but it doesn't work. Anyone have any idea of what's happening? I'll change to 5 stars when it works correctly.

- by wlwlam, 10 years agoRated 4 out of 5Easy to install and useful. Sometime bizarre (e.g. no "myocarditis" "bronchopneumonia" "osteoclast" but include "myocarditic", "osteoclastic" in the dictionary). It will nice if the raw file of dictionary can be edited directly.
Developer responseposted 10 years agoThe dictionary file name is OpenMedSpel.dic and it can be edited with any text editor.
The raw dictionary file can be found in -
C:\Documents and Settings\**your account name**\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\id8ro0eb.default\extensions\firstname.lastname@example.org\dictionaries
- by Sandi Pniauskas, 10 years agoRated 4 out of 5will an update be coming as I get an error message that it is not compatible with 3.6.3 - thanks
Developer responseposted 10 years agoOpenMedSpel should work with versions through 3.7a3pre.
I am using Firefox 3.6.3 now without problems. Please check to make sure you are using the latest version of OpenMedSpel.
