lightweight addon @10kb

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Sorry for posting my code suggestions on the review section.
I found how to restore to original tab when closing the newly created tab. It is done simply by adding the parameter "relatedToCurrent" to the addTab function.
This way, the previous code I posted will be reduced to the following simple line:

domWindow = gBrowser.selectedTab = gBrowser.addTab(url, {relatedToCurrent: true});

Happy coding

Almost fixed. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you so much for fixing the recent problems. FYI, I'm now seeing a weird bit of behavior. After the definiitions window renders, it jumps up to the top of the browser window, with the top edge of the definition window hidden behind the browser tab bar. I have to drag the definition window down a bit to get access to the full page & close buttons.

Thank you for the update! I've been lost without it. Can't believe how dependent upon it I've become.

Very good add-on. Simple, useful & always works! One suggestion though -- Make the list of dictionaries customizable!!

Awesome work Thank You so much for this. Could you possibly make it a little prettier, remove that perforated box line? Make it similar to Chrome's Google Dictionary! That would be great! Thanks for this, Sincerely' (using on Firefox 4.0.4)

Review and request Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on.

There is a similar extension for Chrome, which is really great, called "Google Dictionary (by Google)" https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/mgijmajocgfcbeboacabfgobmjgjcoja

I wanted to do some formatting change to make it look similar like the google one, but it's kinda hard to do, most of the css styling is done via inline styling, which can't be overridden by css-stylesheet styles.

Dear coder, if you plan to do some further development, please consider moving the inline styles from the code to an external stylesheet in order to provide easier theming.

Thanks for a great addon.Inline Dictionary >>> Opening in another tab.I am using the latest FF and it is working beautifully.A little more neat UI and this one will be the best "quick lookup" for a word.Heads up to the coder.

It works great, I'd like it better if it were more like the inline definitions in Google Chrome.

Not working in FF3.6 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is one of my favourite add-ons of all time. I use it all the time, especially when reading American slang-or-acronym-riddled blog pages, so imagine my disappointment when I discovered that it's not compatible with FF 3.6!

It works for about a day then disables itself.

Will there be a fix for this? Huh? Please? Eugene? Purrrrlllleeeeeeeeaaaaaase?

IGD does not work with FF 3.6 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Hello, Inline Google Definitions 1.0 does not work with
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2) Gecko/20100115 Firefox/3.6 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) - Build ID: 20100115144158

Failure is true even when MaxVersion= "3.6a1pre" is changeed to 3.6 OR using Mr Tech Toolkit feature "Make Compatible". The other inline definition addon, WikiLook, does work with FF 3.6.

A way to change language? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nicely working (FF on Ubuntu 9.10).

But useless to me since I need definitions in English and it only gives me definitions in French, probably because I use FF in French.

Suggestion: it would nice to be able to choose the language(s) of the search. There are millions of users on Internet whose mother tongue -and OS are not English, but would need to search in English.

I know there lots of extensions about translation, but, at my level of knowledge of English, translation is insufficient.

Anyways, your extension works very well. Keep on going.

Good app. The definitions are very complete. One bug I found was that if I lookup a word in an email I'm replying to (in gmail) and send the email with the definition window still open, the definition window gets embedded into the body of the email! Just a little FYI.

Very nice. :D Helps me with research.

Two suggestions for future update:
1.) able to leave the inline definitions by just clicking out of the box instead of just that "close" button
2.) keep a history of researched words. so i can keep a vocabulary list.

but still, brilliant tool. thanks for providing it!

Very handy ext, have been using it since the early releases ..
Did you think to make a similar one but for slang definitions, it will be great to have a similar tool to do so.. maybe by searching UrbanDictionary

Very practical. Lets you even find definitions of words inside the definitions. However, this leads to the problem that eventually you are not sure what is defined in the window you see. A change in the window title can solve the problem.

Thanks
