FireFox custom dictionary
« on: December 20, 2007, 06:46:39 PM »
Hello, I have managed to add a few words to my dictionary that were not spelled correctly, (usually just accidentally clicking the wrong button when attempting to correct.

Now, I need to go back and correct a few things that I have put in by accident, and I did search the internet before asking, but found no information. How do I correct wrong entrys?

1. Open your application data folder. On XP or Vista, go to your Start menu and hit Run (or just press Windows-R) and paste in %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles
2. Find your profile folder, which by default should look something like xxxxxxxx.default.
3. Inside your profile folder, find the file called persdict.dat and open it up in your text editor of choice.
4 Now just find the misspelling, delete it, and you're done.
