Dictionaries

Pieter Bruegel the Elder - The Tower of Babel (from Wikipedia)Hello,

we need some help here!

The problem

In an edit-box (for example: comment box here in the Blog)  ‘rightclick → Languages → Download more dictionaries …’  will lead to an AMO Website with a list of available dictionaries (and Language Packs). This page urgently needs some maintenance:

  • on German Page most Language packs are missing
  • Most Dictionaries will cause Message Not Available for SeaMonkey 2.39,
    (Bug 1236366 Encourage dictionary authors to expand SeaMonkey compatibility version range)
    what is not a big problem, because most of these dictionaries (may be all) can be installed without problems after conversion, but the message will make insecure inexperienced users and put off new users who try SeaMonkey
  • Some dictionaries what are available for Firefox or Thunderbird are missing in the list for SeaMonkey
    (Bug 1236807 Encourage FF and TB dictionary authors to make available their add-ons for SeaMonkey)

Approach for solution

It would be great if you could help to test whether those FF or TB dictionaries (see list below) also can be used with SeaMonkey. Test proceeding is the same like for Bug 1236366.

Please simply add a comment concerning your test results in the related Bug report or here as a comment. I will encourage authors to make available their dictionaries for SeaMonkey if that can be done without bigger changes in the dictionary-add-on.

For some Languages (Armenian and others) download links are missing, currently I do not know whether those dictionaries do exist.
