Can't do anything about the trunk and hood, but the color's OK Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Good to see British English back on the add-on menu, no more seeing red over the wrong color without this customisation.

The install instructions refer to a "multi-line text box". You do indeed need to find an on-page web form in which more than one text line can be entered in order to get a "Languages" menu item on the right-click context menu. Then you can set "English (United Kingdom)" as the spell-check dictionary. Once configured you spell check single and multi-line input fields/boxes in the normal way.

Here's a form with a multi-line text field to use to get the configuration done:

Can you speak English please? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Wasn't able to get this going as I didn't understand the wording;
"To enable, right-click in a multi-line text box, select Languages", then "English / United Kingdom".
Exactly what is a multi-line text box?
Removed it immediately. Why can't these people get it that not EVERYONE can understand what they are getting at.
Better to use PLAIN English as I do in all of my instruction manual Pdf's.

Not available for Thunderbird 24.2.0

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent. Thank you very much for this fine add-on, dear developers.

One little question, though: When I open the add-on page/tab in Thunderbird, the other Thunderbird dictionaries (like for example the German one) are being listed under the icon/section "Dictionaries".
However this British dictionary is not being listed there, but under the icon/section "Add-ons".
Is there a simply way to move the British dictionary from the latter section to the first one named "Dicitionares"?

Greetings from Germany to my British friends!

British dictionary Rated 5 out of 5 stars

After my plea this morning a working plug-in! What can one say except thank you. Installed perfectly on FF25

I cannot believe that there is no British English dictionary available for the latest version of Thunderbird!

For goodness' sake - we invented the language, after all! The least you could do is to keep the dictionary up-to-date.

Use tools / add-ons Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The dictionary is excellent. I too was unable to install after following the link on the Spell checking dialog (sic) window however it installed easily after searching the add-ons screen (Tools|Add-ons)

Thunderbird 24 compatibility Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Does the compatibility need updating? It shows as "Works with Thunderbird 2.0a1 - 15.0a1" and I'm blocked from installing this on Thunderbird 24.

Good Job Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Re the spell check as you type not working with version 24 of Thunderbird. I also had the same problem, but this was fixed (don't ask me why) by downloading and installing the US English version of the dictionary (but not actually using it)...

By the way everyone - it doesn't cost you anything to be polite.

Does not work with SM 2.21 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Why did we have to lose the old UK English dictionary that worked so well with earlier versions of SM?
This one is totally useless in that it does not spell check as you type even though the item is ticked in Edit/Spell check as you type.

Not happy - not compatable with Thunderbird 24.0 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

How can this dictionary (R1.19) not be compatible wtih Thunderbird 24.0 ??

How did T 24.0 get released without having a British dictionary available for it? This is pants.

The dictionary is compatible with Thunderbird 24.0 (I'm using it now). Please make sure your firewall isn't blocking access to Thunderbird.

US English is fine Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Juxxize - you have a lot to learn, if you don't mind my saying so. Many words in US English are older than modern UK English (e.g. "gotten"). The ize ending is older than ise and was the original in UK English. I'm strongly against using US phrases and words in Britain, because I want to keep our dialect alive, not because they are wrong or ignorant. US dialects are fine and often lovely, as in Appalachia.

Meh Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Just had to add the word 'movie' to the dictionary, so a little disappointed. A shame that the GB version of FF doesn't come with a dictionary already...

not compatible with seamonkey 2.16.1

Excellent. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does what it says on the box. What more can one ask? Thanks.

Not worth the effort ! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The current version ( 1.19.1 ) downloaded + installed, ( to find it in the context menu it needed three installations ) ! Then tried out for 60 minutes, meanwhile it showed 300 errors, and produced 2 crashes, the first one in FF, the second required a system restart !
Throw it, where it belongs to ,,,

Total Rubbish Rated 1 out of 5 stars

What on earth are the people at Firefox playing at? For the last few years there has been a British English dictionary that functioned perfectly well. With the latest upgrade this dictionary has disappeared to be replaced by one which doesn't know how to write in "proper" English. Unless it's sorted soon I'm off to use another web browser. The "wonderful" Aurora never worked either.

Would like Dictionary updates Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I think it's a real step forward that you can get an English dictionary for Firefox(I'm using Nightly 20.0a1) rather than suffer a dictionary in a foreign dialect. I really do value this add-on very much.
It would be really good though if it updated the word list automagically by merging the add-on list with a new one from a fairly authoritative source or pointed the user to some possible sources & allowed updates, or at the very least ***allow export & import of word lists*** this last surely would be simple to implement & might even create a community around creating & improving an English word list. Dictionary is a misnomer after all - its is just a word list NOT some kind of map or indexed list.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Mostly, it's a real pain to have to reboot to get the thing to work.

Also, it's very annoying that the langage defaults to Americsn in my Linux editions.

That is compunded by the fact that other versions of English are not included in the American locale box (at the top) as options. One has to go to all the trouble of searching for them in the full "others" list, when one is initially unsure whether they would be listed under country name (locale).

Would it be possible to have a "use Linux(o/s) disctionaries instead" option?

I've been using Firefox for a couple of years and my spelling is awful but the built in spell checker is US English which isn't English at all! all the spellings are wrong and I have no idea how Americans can actually say they speak English because they don't it's American so I'm so very thankful I found this add-on , I just wish I'd found it ages ago as it would have saved me alot of stress .
