Please update to make the add-on compatible with Firefox 57/Quantum!
Great definitions, small pop-up window, and it couldn't be easier to use. I upgraded to Firefox Quantum and now I'm wanting to downgrade so I can get my Dictionary.com back. That's how important this add is to me. Please get it to work with Firefox Quantum or I might actually have to give up on Firefox Quantum, because for me, Dictionary.com is not just a nice addon...it is ESSENTIAL!
Can you update it to work with FireFox Quantum (ff 57) please?
Unfortunately the pronunciation is still not working for me.
A very pop-up. Using for quite a long time.
Now click on sound icon not triggering my Java 8 ver 144
Would be better if you could increase text size, for us older people.
The only downside to this is if you are selecting a word for copying, the definition dialogue pops up. But for the overwhelming convenience of having word definitions at your fingertips like that, it's a minor problem.
Really useful but its now working now needs to be update...
Doesn't work with e10s. Needs update.

Overall I like the add-on because it is sort of like the dictionary extension I had in Chrome that I liked so much, but Mozilla Firefox's isn't quite as good. There are no options, as claimed in the description of the add-on. Sometimes one highlights a word for other purposes than to get the definition, for example, so the pop-up is actually in the way. Ought to differentiate the reason for highlighting by either single or double-clicking or whatever so one can right-click the option they need. Another matter is that the pop-up stays on the screen and is in the way after one is done with it and one has to go to the mouse to hover over the little "x" to close the pop-up which slows one's productivity at the keyboard. But, for lack of any better such program in this browser, I'd rather have it than nothing. Thanks.
It doesn't work on reader mode
I got this extension mostly for use while reading epub books in my browser and ran into words I didn't know. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work on anything on firefox that isn't specifically a website.
I will keep using it, as it at least allows me the option to right click and search the word on dictionary.com but I will be looking for another extension that does what I need.
I read that the same thing has already been raised on here. I wonder if it was solved. Everytime I restart Mozilla Firefox, the add-on disappears from my toolbar. I have to toggle 'disable' and 'enable' for it to work again. Such a hassle since I use Dictionary.com everyday for work.
could you modify it to use ctrl+click to start the work?
Good and brief. But I certainly like to be able to disable the pop-up, it really bothers when I don't need it. There's no customization available (for Mozilla v43). Partially disappointed..
It works very well on Mac.
I’m sure non-American’s want American bias in their dictionary: it's here in Dictionary.com - all oriented to US spelling, place names, and history.
Three definitions of ‘legion’, one of them was “American Legion”. Being British I couldn’t give tuppence for this particular definition.
This worked very well with Pale Moon but just stopped when Pale Moon v27 dropped Jetpack support. I hope the developer will consider making the add-on compatible again. Difficult to rate this because the developers never committed to supporting Pale Moon.
I use the extension on both Windows and Mac, but I can only access options (through Tools -> Dictionary.com -> Manage dictionary options) on Windows. When I click, nothing happens. Anyone's got a solution?
just highlight any word and the plugin show both definition + audio
thanks for the wonderful plugins guys!
Great add-on in itself, unfortunately it doesnt support electrolysis yet. Hopefully there will be an update soon for it.
Can't hear the pronunciation of the word in the pop-up window.
Why there's no options in the about:addons , I do not know. Instead the options are hidden in the dragable icon located in the "customize" section. You have to place the dictionary icon on your toolbar in order to get to the options. Overall a really useful and convenient add-on. I highly recommend it.
I've been on some websites where a click on the speaker icon produced no pronunciation audio.
