* Your IP address.

* Words you look up (of course).
* And so on.
And they share everything with other parties.
work as charm! It would be great to have more synonyms or even better - Thesaurus!
doesn't work :/
THeir privacy polices indicate they collect your site url and what word you search and with all the other info they have as of computer ip address and browser info, it is possible to identify you. Super creepy.
I was going to give a 3-star for the lack of basic customization, such as a trigger command (ex: holding ctrl+double click). Turns out that the option actually exists, but you have to dig for it. One way is to "customize" the addon by dragging it onto your add-ons bar where the option button will show up. Then you can pull it right off. Idk why they didn't just put the options button on the add-on page
Pronounce function doesn't work. Confirmed Quicktime plugin is installed and activated.
i like it
Love it - works great. I just figured out the problem as described below by say2alok , though: "It's good but pronunciation is not working for me due to some plugin needed & while clicking the Install Plugin & pressing the Next button it results in Plugin Not Available."
The missing plugin is QuickTime... you can get it from the Apple website...download it, close Firefox, install Quicktime, enable the plugin and it works (on most pages, but not Yahoo)
Ace! An absolute must-have add-on for Firefox/TenFourFox. Please make it available for Thunderbird/TenFourBird
The best; Firefox needed something like this.
So far, haven't encountered any negatives. I'm happy with it, for now.
Edit: Have experienced some hiccups with certain pages. (YouTube, for example)
Overall, it's been very useful.
I took 1 star off because access to the extensions is not described anywhere on this page or in the Add-on description via add-on manager. For those its in the Tools via Menu Bar.
2nd star removed due to canvas issue.
For Jack Bayer you can add the CTRL, SHIFT or ALT to avoid the dbl click issue.
This add-on makes canvas pages to display incorrectly or not at all (blank), Ex.:
Making this extension unfit and unusable for most if not all internet users.
Please fix it.
The bug has also been reported to your site, and to Firefox Bugzilla even it is not their fault nor can they do anything about it:
It's good but pronunciation is not working for me due to some plugin needed & while clicking the Install Plugin & pressing the Next button it results in Plugin Not Available.
Any suggestions guys ?
Very good dictionary but we double click on words very often (not only because we want to know their meaning) and it bothers me, so if there is an option to change this shortcut it would be great. For instance double click on a word + hold Ctrl and then the pop-up come on the screen.
to: RookBytes -- thanks so much for simple installation "instructions" .. have had this add-on for so long -- GREAT-WONDERFUL- cannot do without it.. but I had to do the "fix" for FF -- that deletes add-ons .. couldn't figure out how where / how to get icon back on the current version format -- as I said, have used it so long -- was just different install way back when ....one of my 4 essential add-ons.....
This perfect gem works fantastic. You can bypass all the negative comments by simply adjusting the settings for this addon in its control panel. To open the control panel, Go to an area at the top of your browser window and right click. Now click on Customize. Drag the addon's icon onto your browser in the spot you want it, were it will fit...you will know it because the button will stick, like beside the buttons for reload or home or favorites. tada you are done. choose show more than one definition to get all the meanings of a word or phrase. you will get synonyms too at the bottom of the definition. Hellagood job on this addon!!! too bad the naysayers didn't "get it"! Ha!!
This is a great extension, a tiny little app no need to download a big software. I use it in windows, but now i see that its no more working in Lubuntu 14.04 LTS.
Would you please update it for linux people?
How can I change the add-on preference?
I tried several addons and I had problems with all of them but this one. By far this is the best dictionary addon available for Firefox.
I was fan of chrome's google's dictionary caption toolkit and was looking something similar for firefox and i found this addon astounding and much better than google's.
I wish they integrate this in newer versions, "Life without a captioned dictionary is hard".
Just what the doctor ordered
At first, I had a problem. It didn't work. It showed as installed but no button or anything to click on. Then I went to Privacy settings and changed it to Remember History and it worked fine.
As someone who considers English his second language, this extension is awesome! It works flawlessly on my end and makes learning new words a breeze. I really love the fact that I can click on a word and get a definition right away.
Many thanks to the developers!
