Summary: On my Ubuntu machine I have seven English dictionaries installed and I don't know how to get rid of them.

Changed:

< *Extensions* lists only the /German (Switzerland)/ dictionary. *Languages* only lists /Firefox en-GB/ which I cannot uninstall. Disabling appears to have no effect. Is this something outside of Firefox?

I just added the EFF’s HTTPS Everywhere to my FireFox extensions. That reminded me of the following annoying fact: On my Ubuntu machine I have seven English dictionaries installed and I don’t know how to get rid of them. I switch a lot between English and German – having to pick the right English variant annoys me, specially since I don’t have to do it on other Firefox installations. But where can I deinstall them?

Extensions lists only “German (Switzerland)”. Languages only lists “Firefox en-GB” which I cannot uninstall. Disabling appears to have no effect. Is this something outside of Firefox?
