My dictionary and corrections

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Gualtier Malde, Nov 18, 2007.

  1. Greetings -

    Using Thunderbird 2.0.0.9 in Windows 2000 SP 4

    When I write a message and want to put in "soufflé", while I am typing I can
    only write "souffle". My spelling check picks up the latter, so I manually put
    "soufflé" in the dictionary. Now when I put in "souffle" it gets flagged, but
    the dictionary doesn't offer my "soufflé" as an option. When I go to character
    map, pick up the "é" and insert it manually, the spell checker removes the red
    underline.

    Frustrating. I had hoped that I would have a shortcut for souffle, saute, and a
    whole other bunch of words.

    Is there anything that I can do to improve the situation?

    Install the French language dictionary?

    Go to Edit...Preferences...(or Tools...Options... in Windows), Select
    composition, go the the "Spelling" tab, and click "Download more
    dictionaries."
