Is there a "stop" list for the spell checker?

Firefox accepts certain words like "ans" (instead of "and") as properly spelled.  I would like to have the spell checker flag this word.  Is there any way to create a list of words that Firefox should always consider as misspelled?

Thanks.

Firefox uses the Hunspell spelling checker.  The Hunspell spelling 
checker uses a pair of .dic and .aff files for its spelling 
dictionaries.

You may be able to fix this particular problem by making the 
following two fixes to the file "en-US.dic" (US English spelling 
dictionary)

  1.  find the line which says
         dean/M
      and change it to
         dean/MS

  2.  find the line which says
         an/CS
      and change it to
         an

I have not tested this thoroughly, so make a backup in case you want 
to revert.

There does not appear to be any way to specifically add a list of 
words to always reject.

Configuring "OS", "Priority", and "Severity" lists
I'm trying to change the values used in a few of the select menus for new and existing bugs. As I understand it, the tables "bug_severity", "op_sys", and "priority" contain possible values for these menus. Each has a column "isactive" that is set to "1" for each value. I assumed that changing this column to "0" would remove the value from the select list without having to remove the entire value from the database. For example, if we are no longer tracking issues for Mac OS 7.x, we could just set those records in the op_...

"mail" and "newsgroups" no longer listed under "tools" menu

Proposal: Move "Mozilla Labs" from "" to "Client Software"
The "Other Applications" product, containing ChatZilla, DOM Inspector etc. is in the "Client Software" Classification.
