Firefox and Gedit (at least) are checking spelling wrongly. Which package should I file a bug against?
For some time I've had issues with spell checking in Firefox. I hadn't bothered with them since I didn't want to clear my profile and do all the other necessary troubleshooting steps. I've seen this bug report but it seems to be languishing because it's missing key information.
Here are my symptoms:
In Firefox, the spell checker only underlines words containing apostrophes (all of them) and deems every other word to be correct. Here's a screenshot:
In Gedit, words appear to end at apostrophes. But, the problem is less serious as the following two screenshots show:
- This is a fresh install of Quantal with a clean
$HOME. However, I've experienced the Firefox issue for at least a year, perhaps longer. The Gedit issue I only noticed in the course of testing the bug I referenced earlier.
- I experience the Firefox issue on a different machine running Precise. I have not tested the other machine with Gedit.
- My locale is
en_US.UTF-8and my keyboard layout is Korean (hardware and software).
- I don't know whether these two issues are related or separate problems.
- I care a lot about the Firefox problem. I don't care very much about the Gedit issue.
