The Firefox spell check tool is both awesome and incredibly flawed at the same time. It is super easy to accidentally add misspelled words to the dictionary as the “Add to dictionary” button is next to the spelling suggestions. This has caused me to add almost all my misspelled words to the Firefox dictionary rendering it useless. Unfortunately there is no built in tool within Firefox to edit the dictionary.

In complete frustration I made a little tool yesterday to remove misspelled words from the dictionary. It’s really basic but it does the job of editing the Firefox dictionary. I can’t be the only one out there with this problem so I am posting a copy of the tool here for the world. Think of this as a alpha version that works and gets the job done.
