How to Remove Misspelled Words From Your Firefox Dictionary
If you're like me then you have mistakenly added misspelled words to the Firefox dictionary. This guide shows you how to remove the words you have added by mistake.

1: Press Windows + R (or go to Start->Run) - This will bring up the Run menu:

and paste in "%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles"

3: Inside your profile folder, find the file called persdict.dat and open it up in your text editor of choice.

Just right click on it and select "open with" from the menu that opens:

4: Now just find the misspelled word that you added and delete the word then save the file and you're done.

It is important that you have Firefox closed when you save the file.
