I'm wondering if anybody here would be interested in collaborating on a simple enough project.
I lost my flash drive, so I'm using my wife's (I don't think she ever uses it) and since I'm bad and don't back up, I had to start a new profile. Took no time at all to round up my favorite extensions and whatnot, but I found the spell checker was notoriously off.
Now that I have a personal wiki (I'm using Wiki on a Stick) I decided to make a page for spellchecker omissions. In just a few hours it had grown quite long. I plan to maintain this, adding to the wiki page as well as the spell checker as I go on.
If you'd like to help, just make a note of words you use that Firefox's spell checker doesn't check. If you want to go all out, delete your dictionary, reinstall, and start over, and just collect words you may use. I may or may not add all of your suggestions to the master list based solely on my discretion.
The intended use, if you want to add to your dictionary from this list, just copy the entire list into a text field, and manually add the ones you no longer want flagged as you type them.
Obviously we will not all agree on what should and what should not be added. I'm not even proposing revising the official English dictionary in Firefox -- that might not even be a good idea. But I'm sure some of you will agree with some.
