    I asked that they fix spell checker finding a word like "monday", (which
    should be capitalized), and coming up with no suggested spellings. Now
    it does come up with the word capitalized. Same for a lot of proper names.

    Just felt like sharing on some progress I saw,

    Did they add Mozilla, Thunderbird, Firebird, or Firefox by any chance? :-D

    No, not yet. Maybe they never heard of those names? I'm not
    complaining though, Mozilla didn't cost me much anyway. :-D

    You can add the word yourself. Simply click on Add Word.

    I know, and I have ;-) But I've always found it rather humorous that
    the Mozilla dictionary doesn't contain the word 'Mozilla'.

    The Mozilla dictionary isnt written by Mozilla, it was adapted from a dictionary available from open sources.

    OK. You mean to tell me that you don't find it funny at all? :)

    Yes, I know. Actually it wasn't long ago when that feature didn't work
    for me either. I forget what version it was, but I could add a word to
    the dictionary 20 times and it would still peg it as a misspelling.

    And like Brian wrote, it's just plain funny that those particular words
    were missed! :) And it used to try to fix spelling mistakes of the
    people you quoted, that is fixed also. Now if I can get them to skip
    spellchecking the very top line in a quoted text, the name before the "
    wrote:" like here "Moz" came up, but I didn't write that!

  10. Well it may be funny, and it kind of is, but Moz used the dictionary
    from OpenOffice.org for their spellchecker, rather then build a new one
    from scratch. Its an example of open source sharing.

    Just add in amy words you need to your custom dictionary.
