Spell check not working on latest Canary 101.0.1198.0

Steel Contributor

Hi there,

with the latest Edge Canary (101.0.1198.0) the spell check for languages other than the ones installed in the Windows OS doesn't work anymore. 
edge://settings/languages tells me "Spell check dictionary download failed" for all these additional languages. Anyone else having the same problems?
The dictionary files from Hunspell like "en-US-9-0.bdic" are still in "C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Edge SxS\Application\Dictionaries", it just seems Canary won't use them anymore. 

I also have Stable and Dev installed on the same machine, they both work fine with spell checking. 

In addition I noticed that Google Chrome Canary uses newer dictionary files, e.g. "en-US-10-1.bdic", could it be that Edge Canary struggles with their new 2-digit version number?


Best regards

Same ""Spell check dictionary download failed" error on Ubuntu, updated to 101.0.1210.2 no change. .config/microsoft-edge-dev/Dictionaries/ still contains "en-US-9-0.bdic"
