I use English and Hebrew and it does not work for me.
Also after I went to about:config and changed - extensions.dictionary-switcher.autodetect to true.

Indispensible - BUT YOU NEED TO TURN IT ON!!! Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

I have been using this add-on for years in Thunderbird, and I was happy with it. I have found it indispensable, for multi-lingual users, and there are many of us out there. I have no idea when it stopped working, and thought that there is probably a bug which will be fixed. It was not. So I tried other add-ons, and used a different one for a while, than that one disappeared, tried this one again... It was not until now, when I have found in a review by tunayx (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/dictionary-switcher/reviews/667322/) that you need to get into the config and turn the automatic recognition on manually:

Options>Advanced>Config Editor set this as 'true'
extensions.dictionary-switcher.autodetect

I could not imagine that this need to be done manually - please warn users, as you will loose them otherwise. It would, of course, be better if it could be turned on from add-on options.

I also have a compatibility issue with my favourite add-on 'Thunderbird Conversations' - it would be great, if the autoswitching would work in the quick reply.

But it is a fantastic and very important add-on, once the user figures out how to turn it on. Keep up the good work!

It causes the content process to crash Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

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

Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

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+ Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

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 Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

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 !!! Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

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... Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

... 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.

Repeated script crashes Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

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)
