- por cheeseus, el hace 8 mesesSe valoró con 4 de 5This is obviously a great resource and I thank you for creating it. The reason I'm giving it four stars, however, is that is often misleads me in my work. This is because in some of my work I need to use the conservative British spelling (e.g. legal or academic texts, or just personal preference) and the dictionary not detecting those more 'liberal' spelling variants requires me to triple check everything. This is why I would suggest that you create a branching of this add-on that uses the conservative spelling (I guess others might find it useful, too).
By the way, I just tried manually replacing the AFF and DIC files inside the XPI package but the add-on wasn't detected by Firefox (because of digital signature?), so I can only hope that you will create the conservative variant I need.
Respuesta del desarrolladorpublicado el hace 8 mesesHello!
The Firefox platform digitally signs the add-on when I upload it.
Regarding the "conservative spelling" what I suggest is that you e-mail me the list of words.
Some users like "Cyberknight" now and then send me wordlists of dozens/hundreds of missing words.
If they are valid, they are added for the next release.

I realise that Mozilla is a US organisation but think it's reasonable to expect fuller language support.
There are some errors in this dictionary though: I noticed that words ending -ize are treated as correct whereas that is invariably the USA form, in Britain we tend to only use the -ise form.

Thank you for your comments.
GB also uses -IZE in most words according to the Oxford Dictionary (but there are exceptions).
As a premium account holder of the Oxford Dictionaries, I have access to more information regarding the words, where it states in -IZE words "also blah blah -ISE".
I wrote an example in the FAQ:
But pressing the link there will only show the full Oxford description to premium users, persons who are just visitors won't see it. Nothing I can do about it.
I believe that persons from Australia and Canada use -IZE and this speller can also be used by them.
I am planning to create a module for my Proofing Tool GUI tool to allow future AU+CA maintainers to create a list of words to add and to remove in/from the GB speller, so that they can create high quality spellers for their countries, based on mine (it is in my TO-DO list)... what I don't know is who would be interested in such a hard task.
My brother, kind regards!
I will continue working on the speller.
