4/5 because this still has some americanised spellings, that said, 4/5 is good in my book, it does what its supposed to and The recent update of thunderbird have broken my old british dictionary.

Ubuntu 18.04 - Thunderbird 60.5.1 (64-bit)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.70.1). 

Thank you!

Works great when Thunderbird updated to latest version

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.69). 

Hello!

Here is what I replied to users both in public and in private:
"
I know.

V2.69 of the GB speller is now a WebExtension and it requires at least Thunderbird 60.5 (29-JAN-2019).

Mozilla triggered the updates of the speller faster than the trigger of Thunderbird.

Go to the menu: Help > About, and update from Thunderbird 60.4 to 60.5 and it should work.

Please tell me if it fixes the issue.
"


FOR LINUX (updates of Thunderbird can't be forced):
"
In the Thunderbird dictionary page, select at the bottom to see all previous releases.

Then, download 2.68, install it manually on Thunderbird and disable in it the automatic updates.

Once there is an update for Linux, go to the add-ons option on Thunderbird and re-enable its updates.

This is the best I can think of.

Tell me if it works!

Thanks!

Not sure what is going on but my version must be corrupt even though I have downloaded it twice and restarted Thunderbird.

Words like cars, parts, ferrules, washers, into etc. get corrected to car s, part s, ferrule s, washer s, in to ?

Words like supplied, tapping, offending get converted to sup plied, tap ping, off ending (but it does include unoffending?).

It's sending me mad as I have a pages full of red squiggles and what's even worse I cannot spell in the first place.

I thought it was OK on 60.4 but having upgraded to 60.5 it is now working OK.

Many thanks

There's something wrong with affixes. It's not recognising simple things like cats or generated.

Edit: Updating to 60.5 fixed it

I know it's not your fault but this is "Incompatible with Thunderbird 60.4.0."

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.68). 

Hello!

It is compatible with 60.4 as it is the one I am using.

It just isn't with 65+.

And after 60.5 is released at the end of the month, Mozilla will probably convert all the remaining dictionaries to WebExtensions and 60.5 will be the minimum requirement.

I have tried this and that, have read and re-read instructions, and keep going round in circles.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.61). 

Hello!

There isn't much magic in the process:
1) right-click in the "add to Firefox" button;
2) Save the file to the hard disk;
3) Open the target folder and drag the file to the Desktop (or save it there directly);
4) Open Firefox and go to the menu: Tools > Add-ons;
5) Left-click in the downloaded file and drag it into the Firefox add-ons window;
6) Accept the installation;
7) Right-click in an editable text area, for example: try it here when you are going to increase your rate to 5 stars, Select: Languages > English (United Kingdom) in the pop-up menu.

Voilà!

Not much magic in it.

Please try it and send me a private e-mail if you need any further help.

EDIT: If you have already the GB speller from the other guy, you need to remove it as it will conflict with mine.

the extension is installed, but how to download the dictionary ? any link please?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.59). 

Hello!

If the extension is installed, the extension is the dictionary.

You just need to turn it on:
http://marcoagpinto.cidadevirtual.pt/en_installing.html

See points:
3.1 & 3.2

And remember that to use it in Thunderbird, you will need to install it there.

To use it in Firefox, you need to install it there.

(to use on both, you need to install on both).

I've followed the FAQ but it doesn't spell check anything and all words come up underlined. Yes, I have selected English (GB) in the spell check settings; yes, I have uninstalled any other dictionaries (I even removed the Firefox GB Language pack as well); I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling several times with no change.

I've had to go back to the standard GB Language pack with a (bizarrely) US dictionary - at least the majority of words are checked now :-(

EDIT:
Can't reply to the comment below directly but I've tried manually installing the addin as per the instructions but there is no difference.

EDIT 2:
Yes, as mentioned in the original post, I have selected the Dictionary/Language for Spellchecking in an editable field - This is when it switches from just highlighting non-US words to highlighting every word so I know it's made the switch (It just doesn't accept any words as spelled correctly).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.59). 

Hello Zog,

Could you try the steps explained in:
http://marcoagpinto.cidadevirtual.pt/en_installing.html
?

Please tell me if this solves your issue.

Thanks.

EDIT: Make sure you have installed on Firefox if it is to be used there. Then, right-click in an editable text area just like this one when you writing in it, and select: "Languages" -> "English (United Kingdom)"

I don't know how to use this add on. I've installed this one along with Google translate extension. When double click on any word, only the translate extension pops up. Please guide me.

Hello!

I have written a page explaining how to install and activate:

I hope this helps.

This add-on seems very good, though one thing I have noticed that it has only 60 of the 66 books of the Bible. I would like to request the six missing books, which are: Habakkuk, Malachi, Philippians, Colossians, Thessalonians, Philemon. As a Christian, I talk about these books constantly. It is also a shame that the add-on doesn't include American spellings such as color. When I'm not speaking to Brits, I prefer to use American English, so as not to create any barriers in communication.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.57). 

Hello!

I can't add "color" since it is American, but you can use American words by installing a US speller and toggling between spellers as needed.

Tomorrow morning I will work on the six bible missing books.

I will try to find if Wikipedia has information about them in order to try to find missing related words.

Consider that on Friday night I will update the nightly changes in GitHub with missing bible terms:
https://github.com/marcoagpinto/aoo-mozilla-en-dict

Thank you!

Kind regards,

EDIT:
Tons of bible related words/names added.
See the GitHub release notes for 16-FEB-2018.
It will be available in the monthly update within a couple of weeks.
