Finnish dictionary does not show up on TB's settings panel for dictionaries (no entries in dictionary drop-down), message compose window drop-down, but it is selectable in the actual spell check window In Firefox pre3.6b1, spell checker is not visible anywhere so it is essentially broken. This breaks, among other things, online spell checking as there is no way to select Finnish as a language for that in TB/FX. Tested on nightly version of TB pre3 and FX pre3.6b1, clean profile on TB. Linux/Debian/amd64 native FX, 32bit TB. I will test on other platforms and get back with that.
Tested with Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124pre) Gecko/20090922 Fedora/3.0-2.7.b4.fc11 Thunderbird/3.0b4. Spell check shows up in dialog opened by pressing spellcheck button on toolbar of message editor window. Spellcheck menu entries are not however seen in context popup menu in of the same window. So I guess that could be problem not specifically with Finnish spell-checker, but with spell-checker in Thunderbird generally.
Andris: We see the same behaviour confirmed. However, two other spellcheckers I've tried (English-US, Swedish) don't have this problem, so the problem seems to have some special connection with the Finnish spell checker. I opened another bug (bug 524305) on the apparently unrelated Firefox 3.6 issues and changed title correspondingly.
Other mentioned spell-checkers use built-in hun-spell support. The finnish spell-checker uses external spell-checker. In old versions nsiXULRuntime interface was used. The UUID of this interface has been changed in FF-3.6pre and as result instance of corresponding object cannot be found. Current SVN version (and also tagged version 1.0) no more uses this interface, so it is expected to be compatible also with FF 3.6pre (and corresponding nightly builds of Thunderbird). I have not however checked it for some time. So I guess it is time to update a version of Finnish language spell-checker on addons.mozilla.org
Hello, when is this going to be fixed?! I still can't upgrade from TB2, because e.g. "Dictionary Switcher" (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/dictionary-switcher-for-thunde/) or "Quick Locale Switcher" (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/quick-locale-switcher/) can't "access" (or whatever the technical term is in this issue) the Finnish dictionary (tried the latest 1.9.0 version.. though I believe that it doesn't matter because the problem is elsewhere.. in TB). 1½ since this was opened and still NEW and not fixed? Is it impossible?
