User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.7; rv:11.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/11.0 Build ID: 20120312181643 Steps to reproduce: I was trying to install a new dictionary from the Spell Checking drop down. This is from an email composition window. This kindly supplied a list of installed dictionaries, and a link to "install new dictionary". I clicked that. Actual results: This took me to a new Thunderbird tab (nice!) with a 404 page, saying add-on not found. It's not a biggie, since there was a link on the left hand side which pointed me to the right direction. However, being an occasional software developer myself, I thought I'd let you guys know about this. Expected results: The link should have gone to the correct place immediately, without the 404 page in the middle.
(In reply to Jay Versluis from comment #0) Confirmed here: User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:11.0) Gecko/20120327 Thunderbird/11.0.1 Application Build ID: 20120327115527 Write ➯ Options ➯ Spell Checking ➯ Language ➯ Download more dictionaries... (error page).
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:11.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/11.0 This also fails in Firefox, so it's probably a core bug. Firefox: Right click textarea -> Languages -> Add Dictionaries... Looks like it should now go to https://addons.mozilla.org/[language]/[application]/language-tools/

This is a major regression in AMO link functionality, breaking all older versions and current versions of Firefox & Thunderbird. It looks like it could be fixed by a redirect from https://addons.mozilla.org/%LOCALE%/%APP%/dictionaries/ to https://addons.mozilla.org/%LOCALE%/%APP%/language-tools/ but I believe that if this is the new location then new versions of Firefox, Thunderbird & all should be updated to point to this new location rather than the old one.

I added a redirect back in for /dictionaries/ It'll be on addons-dev.allizom.org in a second.
I've temporarely changed setting spellchecker.dictionaries.download.url in Thunderbird to addons-dev.allizom.org and can confirm it works! Good job. Don't know how to test this in Firefox, because I can't find the pref there...
We're a week out from Firefox 12's release. It sounds like this can be at least temporarily resolved server side. Please email email@example.com today if you still believe this needs to go into our final beta. Otherwise, we'll first resolve this for FF13 if any further action is necessary.

Just tested - everything looks fine to me on FF13. This must have been rolled out to production.
