Content Preferences If this extension doesn't work for you for a specific site, you probably have a content preference that overwrites the dictionary for that site. This content preference is automatically added if you manually set the dictionary for an input field on a site. In order to clear it, try manually setting the dictionary to the same language as the site, e.g., English for Reddit.
