spell check German (from Firefox) for PaleMoon (for XP)

Unread postby visionhelp » Fri, 02 Feb 2018, 15:13

Hi,

the spell check german language-pack from Firefox: which version works for PaleMoon (for XP) and how to install it, or where to copy to, please?

Or better: an other spell check language-pack, not from Firefox. The Firefox spell-check versions are depending on the different versions of Firefox, so, not down-compatible.
This does a check in Pale Moon to the version of Firefox, which is installed.

Thank You.

I don't know what Fedor2 meant (spell checker has nothing to do with language packs), but all you need is to install the required dictionary from AMO.
Here are the add-ons I made in a spare time. That was fun!

Thanks to both.

The download of the newest version at http://addons.palemoon.org/language-packs/ does not work to download (the browser NewMoon says, sorry Fedor2):
"This add-on could not be downloaded because its origin could not be verified."

https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/language-tools/ the german dictionary is not to download, only to ADD, but to Firefox.
And as I found from a fast view - here in the board -, the spell-checkers from Firefox ´all´ do not work properly in PaleMoon.
