I'm not 100% sure what you mean by this, but I can give you more information
regarding the problem.
Firefox's spellchecker is marking words such as 'color' as misspelled and
corrects them with the British spellings [i.e. 'colour'].  My local settings
are for US english as shown in the image I attached.  The output of "Help >
About Mozilla Firefox" yields:

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.8.1.11) Gecko/20071204
Ubuntu/7.10 (gutsy) Firefox/2.0.0.11

Additionally, the Add-On for the English (GB) Pack has been disabled and
Firefox was already restarted since then.  I have included a snapshot of the
Add-On box to exemplify this.  Despite all this evidence that the US
dictionary is active, 'color' is still marked wrong and 'colour' marked
correct.  I am verifying this as I type.
