The symlinks /usr/lib/firefox/dictionaries and /usr/lib/firefox/hyphenation are broken. They point to /usr/share/hunspell and /usr/share/hyphen respectively. I do have the hunspell and hyphen packages installed but they do not contain those directories.

Unsure if any functionality is broken because of this. If not, perhaps we should just delete those two symlinks from the firefox package?
This task depends upon

You must not have any of the language packs for hunspell or hyphen installed.
