The stories I didn't write

Why does Firefox think that the capital of Cambodia is a misspelled word?

If you use Firefox or Google Chrome to browse the internet, then the capital of Malaysia , Kuala Lumpur, and the capital of Cambodia , Phnom Penh , are underlined with a red squiggly line as if they’re misspelled. It appears that they’re not included in the dictionary that Firefox and Google Chrome use in their spell checks. Phnom Penh and Kuala Lumpur are not easy words to spell – so their absence from the online spell check is unfortunate. (Internet Explorer seems to have a better grasp of geography.) I would like to speak to tourism officials in Cambodia and Malaysia and find out if anyone is upset about this – and also get a comment from Firefox and Google.
