Firefox can install dictionaries as user space plugins. Is there a way to install the dictionaries systemwide with dnf?

You can install hunspell and the language you want to use for instance, in my case use hunspell-en-US and hunspell-es to have dictionaries in English and Spanish.

Excellent. Do you know how to uninstall language variants? I now have like 30 variants of english and 10 of spanish, cluttering the Spell check menu in Firefox.
