MadEngineer_nz (& anyone else), you may be using a version of Firefox that the author hasn't set this dictionary to be compatible to. I'm using FF 3.5b4 and I followed the instructions here to manually disable extension compatibility checker:

The word 'movies' is really a word in Australian English. This dictionary flags it as incorrect. This dictionary is pretty good, but has several false negatives.

I love this add-on but my Firefox just updated itself to v3.0.8 and now tells me that this add-on is not compatible with the new version of Firefox. Is there any way this can be resolved? I don't want to have to use the American dictionary add-on.

I downloaded this programs in German and English and none worked. There is no "Add on" under "Extra". I found something in the wordcheck but this too didn't work. I am getting tiered of it and don't know if I should persue this further.

As a web developer I hate using online HTML WYSIWYG Editors when building sites even though I install them for all my clients sites I just prefer to manually code my pages for validation reasons.

I just find WYSIWYG Editors load slowly and create "some do" bad markup.

I just found this addon excellent, anyway its free, small and does the job.

Doesn't work with FF 3.1, doesn't know many words, Australian or otherwise and it conflicts slightly with other 'right click' addons (have to click twice now).

As an American who recently moved to Australia, this is a lifesaver! I know when words are spelled correctly in American, but I still have some trouble with Aussie spelling.

Brilliant. Been to lazy to get this for a while and had just been 'adding' Australian spelt words to the en-US dictionary. Thank you!!

Thanks for creating this- there are bound to be a few omissions here and there... I just found one: Rooves. The plural of roof is rooves. (~hoof=hooves, shelf=shelves, life=lives, dwarf=dwarves etc...) Do you think you could update this version?

=) Cheers.

This deserves five stars simply because it's pointless having spell checking if the software doesn't support our language. (And because the poor ratings in a couple of other reviews have been on irrelevant grounds.) I haven't checked in detail - an impossible task - whether this add-on supports all of the standard Australian spellings as documented in the Macquarie dictionary, but my experience so far has been good.

One negative, and this is a Thunderbird bug: I still can't work out how to make this the default dictionary. I've read the instructions in http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Using+the+spell+checker, and they don't make sense because I can't find *any* menu in Thunderbird that includes the elusive "Languages" option. I'm using Thunderbird 2.0.0.14 for OS/2 and eCS. Are the instructions only valid for a different version? (As a rule, I prefer not to upgrade right to the buggy bleeding edge.) I know there's another add-on that will let me switch dictionaries in mid-stream, and I used to use it, but I gave up on it because it kept randomly changing dictionaries.

Aha! While spell-checking this review I discovered the elusive "Languages" option. It turns out to be a Firefox option, not a Thunderbird option. So I've now set my default dictionary (I assume) to Australian in Firefox, but I still don't have a clue how to do it in Thunderbird.

Thanks mate for your effort. I do like using my favourite language. It's bonza.

As for some of the reviews, I'm all for constructive feedback, but as a fellow developer I am surprised by some of the negative comments. Robert Martin, yes it may be frustrating having to click TWICE instead of once to install the add-on, but what can I say, life's tough?

oz_ollie, I don't think place names should go in a dictionary, but I believe you can add them manually, if you want.

When you upgrade Firefox, it should check to see if there is a compatible version of the add-on.

As for the tongue-in-cheek comments about the grammar in the author's title, I think it may be acceptable to leave the 'as' out of your title because 'incorrect' could be an adjective describing how *language* is marked, rather than an adverb qualifying how it is *marked*. If there were quotes around it, there wouldn't be a problem, right? Actually, as far as I am aware, Australian spelling is just like English English, except that sometimes American spelling is treated as acceptable, so how can an Englishman claim that Australian spelling is incorrect? (Note the correct use of incorrect here.)

A New Zealand dictionary? Hello, this is for Australian English. Why remark about a New Zealand dictionary and give the add-on 1 star? That has nothing to do with it!

I think it would be an improvement to change the default language to English (Australian) after installation, but I don't know if that would require a change to Firefox or if it can be implemented in the add-on. It's not exactly an obscure language setting. Right-click on a text box, then choose Languages --> en_AU. Okay, so it takes a little bit of searching, but it's not that hard for the computer literate.

Ocker3, that's not a bad idea. The add-on (or whatever it would be) would need to identify who you are, which would probably mean logging into a web site before the commonly used add-ons could be downloaded.

There, I've had my rant. Hopefully I've written something useful here.

Simmosa, thanks for your kind words.

Yes it would be nice if the dictionary was automatically selected after it has been installed, however, this is a Firefox bug, not to do with the dictionary itself.

I have flagged the review requesting a NZ dictionary as inappropriate - hopefully it will be removed by the AMO staff soon.
