I've searched for how to edit both the Gmail and Firefox dictionaries, but neither seem to work for me. I don't even know which dictionary the misspelling is now in: Gmail, Firefox, or both? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

^: just to add more information.

Words that are marked as misspelled that you add to the dictionary are stored in a file named persdict.dat in the Firefox profile folder.

You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.
