Remove Misspelled words and other Incorrect Entries from Firefox Dictionary Added by Mistake

When Firefox detects an incorrect spelling, it highlights that word with a dotted red underline – if you think the spelling is correct, you just right click and choose “Add to Dictionary“.

But if you make a mistake or accidentally add a wrong word to the dictionary, the only way to delete is by manually removing it from persdict.dat file.

cd /home/mod/.mozilla/firefox
pico profiles.ini

you will see

[General]
StartWithLastProfile=1

[Profile0]
Name=default
IsRelative=1
Path=3bvry12h.default

find 3bvry12h

cd /home/mod/.mozilla/firefox/3bvry12h.default
pico persdict.dat

delete the Misspelled word inside

note: ( Change mod to your own username )
