Summary

For some reason, Mozilla doesn't have a Canadian localization team, but I know that even the British dictionary doesn't quite cut it for the truly patriotic. This extension adds Canadian English to the spell check languages available under the latest Mozilla products. After installing this extension, you have to change your preferred language to Canadian English by right-clicking on a text box.

If you have any questions or problems, please send me an email. I'd also be happy to consider any suggestions for words to add or remove from the dictionary.
