I like Firefox and would like to use Thunderbird email program. I can not get the spell checker to work. I've tried downloading UK English dictionary but when I go to Tools Addons to install it's not there.

Heres How (http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/thunderbird/dictionaries.html) -- Assuming you are in NZ there is NZ English, Maori.

Other instructions:

o install a new language for the Mozilla Thunderbird spell checker:

Open Mozilla Thunderbird.
Select Tools | Add-ons from the menu.
Open your browser.
Go to the Mozilla Thunderbird dictionaries page.
Drag and drop the desired Install link to Mozilla Thunderbird's Add-ons window.
Switch to the Add-ons window.
Click Install Now in the Software Installation dialog.
Now click Restart Thunderbird.
You can use the new dictionary by selecting it from the Spell drop-down menu (click the down arrow) while composing a message.
