Description

5 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:12.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/12.0
Build ID: 20120423122843

Steps to reproduce:

If would be nice if webpages could specify a page of dictionary words for use on the page, so that the built-in spell checker would not mark them as incorrect.

For instance, here in this form I used the word "webpages" which the spell checker marks as wrong, but it in fact a valid word in the context of the Mozilla issue tracker. So a hypothetical Head tag might be able to inform Firefox that this word is valid:
<dictionary language="en/us">
webpage
webpages
bugzilla
</dictionary>

An alternate form would include the content from an external file, much as Style and Javascript files can be included:
<dictionary language="en/us" src="/dictionary.txt" />

Thanks for considering the feature!
