I am an Ubuntu User (20.4), but this has been happening since I first switched to Ubuntu a year or so ago (19.10 at the time). When typing into text boxes in Firefox, occasionally, a word will be marked wrong, only to attempt to correct it with the British spelling (specifically, I've noticed this with the words behavior/behaviour, analyzed/analysed). Interestingly, as I type, (on Firefox), the British spelled versions of these words are highlighted as incorrect. Here are the different combinations I've tried.
- Firefox, LinkedIn -> British spelling preferred
- Chrome, LinkedIn -> US spelling preferred
- Firefox, Superuser -> US spelling preferred
- Chrome, Superuser -> US spelling preferred for behavior, but not flagged at all for analyzed/analysed
Generally, this isn't an issue, but as I'm spending much of my time writing cover letters, updating my resume, and posting to LinkedIn, I prefer to have an accurate dictionary by my side. That being said, at this point, I'm also genuinely curious why this is happening.
Any insights are appreciated!
