The group to which I communicate include people from India, US, UK, Australia.
I wish there is one English Dictionary which contain all words in English, 
something like English (All)

I want somebody to combine all dictionaries
* English (Australian)
* English (British)
* English (Canadian)
* English (South African)
* English (US)
listed at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/browse/type:3

if possible also please include all terms in science, technology, IT, legal, business, medical etc.
(see OpenMedSpel - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/6526 )

I am pledging US$20/- for who ever fix this bug and listed it at firefox add dictionaries site with an open source license.
I can send you/team US$20/- as a money order from US bank or pay through PayPal.

Marking Invalid.  This bug is not a problem with or a request for addons.mozilla.org, and I cannot think of a suitable choice of Product.  In addition, we certainly do not want bugs like “Please create a such-and-such add-on (pledge $20).”

See bug 69687 for another approach.

For what it's worth, any dictionary with that many words is going to have a large memory footprint and take a lot of CPU to do anything with.

Also, check out http://blogs.msdn.com/oldnewthing/archive/2004/04/02/106369.aspx 

"The English language has so many words that if you included them all, then common typographical errors would often match (by coincidence) a valid English word and therefore not be detected by the spell checker. Which would go against the whole point of a spell checker: To catch spelling errors."
