In preferences, spell check, there is a button at the bottom that says, "Open user dictionary location." As noted the dictionaries are hunspell/myspell and most dictionaries from Open Office will work with it.

I'll look into the Danish issue. @Toxaris is it possible for you to provide me with a sample ePub (just a few correctly spelled words that are mismarked) and the dictionary files you're using? Also, what OS are you using? When I tested with accented characters for German and Spanish on OS X I didn't run into this issue.

I'll look into a work around for this.

It's a down arrow because search and replace is not dockable. It's a permanent widget that takes up that are. I can change it to an X for consistency though. It's only a down arrow because I was lazy and a down arrow is a standard button but an X is not.

Interesting. Are you having any other issues with Firefox? That error is very much a Firefox error.

This was missed when going through and making the menus and menu items constant. The idea is to get rid of "Tools" because it doesn't tell you anything about what is there. Renaming to Quick Settings is the easiest fix so far.

None should disable it. At least to the point that you dont' see any red underlined words. I'll take care of it saving the None choice after restarting.

This is a limitation of hunspell. Most dictionaries only include the ascii quote version. I could introduce a work around where fancy punctuation is converted to ascii (internally) before sending to hunspell for checking. That should fix this issue.
