When typing web-based mail I started noticing it highlighting words like "favorite", "color", "neighbor" as incorrect and suggesting the UK versions "favourite", "colour", "neighbour", In looking under ad-ons languages I see "Firefox (en-GB)". Does that not stand for Great Britain?
Under preferences, Content, Languages I had "English [en]" but I see there's also an "English/United States [en-us]" option.
Additionally I installed the "United States English Dictionary".
I've been running the LTS 8.04 (64-bit) on my laptop for the last 2 years. Though a co-worker running a new install of 10.04 (32-bit) sees the same issue.
Yes I'll head over to the Ubuntu forums but I was curious how widespread this is.
Perhaps trickery by our fellow UK brethren?
