Compatibility with older versions should be changed. Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen


hallo aus Berlin und vielen herlichen Dank für Ihre Antwort.

As I said in my earlier review, the only reason I updated from 2.0.2 to 2.0.3 in my older Firefox (3.6) was that the add-on says it's compatible. And as I've also said, this is true, sort of.

The spell check function apparently works; the AOM component obviously doesn't since there's no "Dictionaries" tab in 3.6.

As for the other part of my question, I'd still like to know, bitte: Is there any difference between 2.0.2 and 2.0.3 in terms of what's actually in the dictionary, or does the update merely reflect the new programming / AOM concept? Danke.

As for updating to a newer version, I still like the look and feel of 3.6 better than those of 18 and 19, both of which I have on other computers.

I know I'll have to update one of these days, but as Aragon said before the gates of Mordor, "It is not this day."
P.S. In regard to the review from "chruschow", 2.0.2 worked perfectly on my 64-bit version of the Nightly using, of course, 64-bit Win 7. The update to 2.0.3 on that machine also worked perfectly. I'm not sure what the problem with chruschow's installation is.

Having said this, I might add that my profile for the Win7 machine was a re-worked copy of the one from my 32-bit Win XP machine, on which 2.0.2 was already functioning properly, i.e. I never actually tried to install 2.0.2 on 64-bit Win 7 or the FF 64-bit Nightly.

Diese Bewertung wurde für eine vorherige Version des Add-ons (2.0.3) abgegeben. 

The dictionary itself in 2.0.3 is also updated compared to 2.0.2, to the most-current igerman98, as mentioned in the release notes.

(As a note, you really should update to Firefox 16 due to security issues with 3.6 - and there are ways to get almost exactly the same look-and-feel as with 3.6 even with newer versions, but the reviews of the German Dictionary add-on are not the right forum to discuss that.)
