[Lazarus] Object Inspector

There is currently a spelling discrepancy which probably needs to be 
rectified in that the OI Favorites page is spelt in the US way, as is 
the popup context menu text that refers to it. Whereas the dialog 
caption and interior label of the "Add to favourite properties" dialog 
(and associated source code) all use the British spelling of favourite.

I also wonder if the default setting whereby the OI statusbar is always 
shown is the best option. I have never found the OI statusbar gives 
essential information, but perhaps I have simply not paid attention to 
it at the right moment, or perhaps there are plans to expand its 
usefulness. It would be more helpful to beginners, I think, if the OI 
InfoBox were shown by default in preference to the statusbar. Although a 
statusbar provides a useful sizing grip, the OI can also be resized 
without it, and turning it off allows one more property to be displayed 
in the grid without the need to scroll.
