Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

This may be a dupe as launchpad OOPSd on my last attempt to file this report.

Firefox in Ubuntu needs support for the dictionary transition that happened in Debian last year. I told several people about this issue on IRC and at UDS but it seems to have not been fixed yet and may have been forgotten so I am filing this bug now. I am not sure if Firefox has basis in any packaging in Debian but if so then a general merge of other fixes may be needed as well. I know Debian doesn't have a 'Firefox' package as such but does have an unbranded version.

The fix appears to be changing this line:

rules: dh_link usr/share/myspell/dicts $(DEBIAN_FF3_DIR)/dictionaries


rules: dh_link usr/share/hunspell $(DEBIAN_FF3_DIR)/dictionaries
