That worked. Can you explain why that is necessary?

I tried that, but I got warnings and errors. I updated the question with them if you could provide any more guidance.

comment How to use American English spelling dictionary in Firefox?
If the problem is that the dictionary keeps getting reset to something other than US English, then this question may have the answer you are looking for: How can I change Firefox's default dictionary?

comment How to install lightdm-set-defaults?
To my knowledge, lightdm-set-defaults just edited the configuration files and did not cause any changes to the running instance of lightdm. Even with that command, you still would have had to restart lightdm for your changes to take effect.
