Version 1.4 9.2 kB Works with Firefox 1.5 and later

Definitions are now displayed within a pop-up window. I've given up trying to fit them inside the tab - there have been too many breakages due to understandable changes being made by Google.

The new method seems to work quite nicely. A tip is to leave the definitions window open - next time you want a definition it will load faster as the existing window will be re-used.

Let me know what you think of this! I'm also considering adding a panel at the bottom of the tab, like the Split Pannel extension.

Version 1.3 11.3 kB Works with Firefox 1.5 and later

As many of you have noticed, the Google Dictionary website has been shut down. I've just submitted another version that uses the definitions tab on Google Search. It's not as nice and is likely to stop working pretty soon as Google makes further changes to their site..

If you'd like this extension to have a proper & reliable method of getting definitions from Google please "star" this feature request: https://code.google.com/p/google-ajax-apis/issues/detail?id=16.

Version 1.2 11.3 kB Works with Firefox 1.5 and later

Breakage fix: Switched to Google Dictionary

I've tried to put this together fairly quickly so there may be a few bugs.

Version 1.0 13.3 kB Works with Firefox 1.5 and later

Firefox 4 support. The June 13, 2009 version of this extension still works!! Even passes Mozilla's validation tests (except for proper non-English UI support).


You can now close the definitions window by right-clicking inside it

OK, I've finally managed to see the compatibility problem after doing a fresh install...Hopefully it will be fixed by this version bump - I'm not sure what the problem is yet..
