It causes the content process to crash Rated 1 out of 5 stars

When I type in a text field it causes the content process to crash when I type in textfields when electrolysis is enabled.
So I guess it's incompatible with e10s and needs an update otherwise it causes constant crashes.
It also fails to switch dictionaries on ever more pages.

Guess it's time to let go...
This was a great add-on, before rtf invaded the editors. Now, it doesn't even switch language when the button is clicked.

When switching to another tab, and then switching back, the selected language is again the wrong one. The "automatic detection" also seems to trigger at random intervals.

I have to correct this extension's decisions every time the conventional way, at least every time I switch back from another tab. This is frustrating and just creates more work.

Stopped working? I cannot switch on gmail.com

Excelente, indispensable

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Quite smart, and it usually works great. I cannot make it work on Thunderbird though (or FossaMail which I now use). It's a 5-star with TB working.

A suggestion: add a "priority switch" for the English language. Some users might usually or always prefer en-GB instead of en-US (or en-AU etc.)

An interesting example of dictionaries.

Can work in TB 27+ Rated 3 out of 5 stars

As the previous review says, only one line needs to be changed to make this addon work in recent TB versions :)

But what he suggests is for making it work in Firefox. To make it work in Thunderbird, change the same line, but in file mail.js (inside dictionary-switcher.jar!/chrome/content).

Manual fix for version 1.3.2:
Changing line 49 of content/browser.js (dictionary-switcher.jar) to
var spellchecker = Components.classes[spellclass].getService(Components.interfaces.mozISpellCheckingEngine);
seems to fix the problem.

Would be nice to see an official version 1.3.3 soon :-)

The dictionary listing bug has just been "fixed"! :-D Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The code in the documentation was wrong and it has been replaced. Apparently that code fixed the problem... I can't wait to see the fix coded in the extension! It will work then... For those who used the workaround, it will have to be reversed...

I love it !!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Before, it didn't work so well, but NOW it does !
I'm switching language every five minutes between French and English, and this simply does the trick !
Most of the time the dictionary switch is automatic, and if not, it's only a click away.
A real time saver this is !!!
Thanks !

simply does not work... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

... anymore in TB 24.01, whereas version 1.15 did perfectly.

And I am neither able nor eager to make the (at least two) complicated modifications suggested by the author.

Therefore I disabled this add-on, and will remove it if no functioning version appears soon.
Sorry, because it was really useful and deserved 5 stars.

Though it was great in the past it keeps freezing FF for several minutes on specific sites (e.g. facebook)

Repeated script crashes Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Ditto Mortaest comment. Very annoying all the constant script crashes.

Dao Gottwald (MrWarper), could you please explain further how to do your recommended fix (see below)?

<< Edit the install.rdf file inside any dictionaries folders or .xpi archives (check under both your profile and application folders just in case) and delete / comment out the line "<em:type>64</em:type>" >>

Very good idea, I always need to switch between several languages...

But scripts crashes and so does firefox (new 25 version doesn't correct that)

Just installed, my dictionaries are showing fine without any tweak needed. But the option to detect "as I type" it's not working at all.
