Description

11 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0

The spelling checker in Firefox 2.0 accepts "Archaeologist" and  "archaeological" but flags "archaeology" as misspelled.  It will accept "archeology" but not "archeologist" or "archeological".  Either variant is OK according to the American Heritage Dictionary, but consistency would be nice.

Reproducible: Always




The hint for the Core/Spelling Checker component says "For bugs with the spelling checker used by Thunderbird and Seamonkey." but there's no spelling component listed for Firefox. Is this the place to report Firefox spelling bugs?
This is fixed on the trunk already.
