Selected added word in the personal dictionary, selected delete and the word was 
not deleted.

Steps to reproduce:
1. open either an existing page or new page. If a new page, enter several lines 
of text, making sure to add some unique words such as Netscape or AOL.
2. select spelling from toolbar or menu
3. when the unique word os found and is displayed in the text field of the spell 
check dialog, select add. Complete the spell check session.
4. Relaunch spell check and select Edit from the dialog
5. In the edit personal dictionary dialog, select the word you just added and 
select delete.

What happens: the word is not deleted

hopefully the user will be able to edit the personal dictionary with another 

setting to minus, moving to future and adding helpwanted

Changed Summary for better searching.
I think this should be reevaluated for 0.9.1

Confirming Spell`s User Dictionary behaviour still exists in Composer build

While testing Spell Check feature using a rather long pre-saved document,
created a new Personal Dictionary list by adding approximately 145 odd
words--some mispelled, even.  Could empty, though not permanently delete, the
Personal Dictionary list, just as described above.  After seemingly have
unloadeded the entire list under ``Words in dictionary:,'' by navigating
[Spell], [Edit] Personal Dictionary, highlighting the first word in the list
[Remove], [Remove], [Remove], ... [Close], the list will return every time.

Completely exiting the software altogether has no additional effect.  The list

Note: Please see also, where the exact issue appears in (Mail) Composer Spell
Check User Dictionary, as originally indicated in Bug 58901.  The identical
list, apparently ``emptied,'' magically appears untouched when Personal
Dictionary is reopened.

Bulk move of mozilla1.0 bugs to mozilla.1.0.1. I will try to pull some of these
back in if I can.

Shouldn't Platform/OS be set to all/all on this bug?

The reason this hasn't been fixed a long time ago is explained by kin:
"It's a bug in the INSO codethere's a bit that's preventing things from being
removed I don't see how (in the INSO API)to cause that bit to get set/unset"

Workaround patch v1 for NS spellcheck module

This patch is contingent on adding ResetPersonalDictionary to NS spellcheck
as well (see bugzilla bug 127704).
But to do this right in mozilla space, we probably should have an overlay that
uses code in this patch only when using the INSO spell checker.
I hope the mozdev spellchecker doesn't have this problem and doesn't have to
use this hack.

In last comment, adding "ResetPersonalDictionary()" to NS code is

Nominating for Buffy. Workaround is to close and re-open Netscape and deleted
items will no longer show.

This turned out to be a bug in the 3rd party spellchecker Netscape uses.
