User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.2; en-US; rv:1.8.1.4) Gecko/20070515 Firefox/2.0.0.4
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.2; en-US; rv:1.8.1.4) Gecko/20070515 Firefox/2.0.0.4

When I right-click to correct a word I get a list of f words:

Example: mispel 

Fringe
Fridge
Frig
Frigs
Frig e
Dispel

This happens with all words that I have created an error in. I just noticed this today (6/30/07).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Misspell a word
2. Right click word
3.
Actual Results:  
Example: mispel 

Fringe
Fridge
Frig
Frigs
Frig e
Dispel

Expected Results:  
I expected to see dispel at the top of the list. I don't know why I would have been trying to spell fridge.

I see only Dispel as a suggestion, not the F-words.

Seems much more likely to be a (transient, and unlikely to be debugged) problem with the toolkit UI forgetting to remove a set of previous suggestions, than to be a core spellcheck bug.

WFM. 

Phil is probably correct. If you have a test case (you can reproduce this bug reliably with a certain sequence of actions) please open a new bug.
