Problem. A word was inadvertently added to the Firefox user dictionary while using an Apple computer.
Solution. Follow these steps to correct the problem:
- Exit Firefox.
- On your computer hard drive, navigate to the Firefox profile folder located in Hard Drive > Users > Your User Name > Library > Application Support > Firefox > Profiles > foldername.default (where the foldername is a random combination of letters and numbers). Use the TextEdit program (found in Applications) to open the persdict.dat file.
- Remove any word(s) not supposed to be in the user dictionary and then save the user dictionary file.
