German dictionary (de_DE)

German dictionary igerman98 (de_DE, Germany), for Firefox, Thunderbird und Seamonkey.

What is German dictionary (de_DE)?
The 'German dictionary (de_DE)' is a Firefox add-on designed for the newer versions of Firefox, Thunderbird, and Seamonkey. This add-on provides an optimized German spell check function. It uses the Hunspell version of the igerman98 dictionary, which is not compatible with Myspell. Therefore, it only works with the newer versions of Mozilla products. Legacy versions should use older versions of the dictionary add-on.

Summary

Dies ist das für Firefox 3, Thunderbird 3, Seamonkey 2 und neuere Versionen optimierte Rechtschreib-Wörterbuch für Deutsch (de-DE, Deutschland, "neue" Rechtschreibung). Es ist die Hunspell-Version des igerman98-Wörterbuchs. Hunspell-Wörterbücher sind nicht kompatibel mit Myspell, weshalb dieses Wörterbuch ausschließlich mit den neueren Mozilla-Versionen funktioniert; für die alten Mozilla-Versionen sollten auch die älteren Wörterbuch-Addons benutzt werden. Wer Probleme mit der Installation von Wörterbüchern unter Thunderbird hat, findet hier eine kleine Anleitung: http://www.j3e.de/thunderbird/how-to-install-a-dictionary.html

Für Thunderbird 65-Benutzer, wo das Wörterbuch vielleicht nicht mehr geht: aus den Thunderbird-Release-Notes:

DICTIONARY SUPPORT: Only WebExtension dictionaries are supported now. Please download new dictionaries from addons.mozilla.org since addons.thunderbird.net still provides "legacy" dictionaries compatible with Thunderbird 60 ESR. This may change as soon as Thunderbird 60 ESR can also handle WebExtension dictionaries (planned for version 60.5).

Ich hoffe das dieses Chaos bald von Mozilla gefixt ist.
