'Remanence' is not in the US English dictionary
Can you mentor this ehsan and make sure it's a valid addition :)
See <https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Adding_a_new_word_to_the_en-US_dictionary> for how to fix this bug.
Hello Ehsan, I'm interested in picking this up. Can you assign this to me?
Thanks for your patch! I think Remanence is an uncountable noun, but CCing a native English speaker to verify. :-)
I believe that to be true, given the Wikipedia page on the concept. I've never seen the word myself :)

Comment on attachment 686929 [details] [diff] [review] Fixed: Added words Remanence, remanent to en-US dict [removed the plural form] Looks great, thanks!
Attachment #686929 - Flags: review+
The Wikipedia article <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remanence> uses the plural form "remanences", the Wiktionary page <http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/remanence> says the plural form is "remanences", and one finds uses of the word in technical literature <http://magician.ucsd.edu/essentials/WebBookse87.html>, so it looks like a countable noun.
Thanks, Myk! Pushed a follow-up to add the plural form: https://hg.mozilla.org/integration/mozilla-inbound/rev/534c895a396a
