- by L P, 6 months agoRated 2 out of 5I would be satisfied with Linguix if it weren't because it keeps on slowing down or jamming my system, to the extent I have to restart Firefox multiple times AND the fact I installed an add-on to see what sites and applications are tracking me, and Lingix is CONSTANTLY placing cookies in my computer, even when I am not writing and not actively using it. Since I installed this other add-on to block Linguix cookies, my browser is actually working faster and not jamming. I'm concerned because I allowed linguix even in private mode. And it's obviously constantly tracking me and placing cookies and I do not know where my info will end up. So, I'm uninstalling Linguix mainly due to privacy concerns, and the fact it slows down my system. Otherwise, it is a really nice application. A shame it has these problems. It also lets a few errors slip by uncorrected from time to time. It would be great if that were fixed, and it got Firefox badge of approval ("recommended")
Update: despite having UNINSTALLED Linguix, it keeps on planting cookies on my browser and tracking me from website to website!
- by Matt GD, a year agoRated 2 out of 5I have some issues with the dictionary, it highlights the selected word quickly then nothing happens, no dictionary pops up
Response to developer: I turned the "Look up dictionary" option on but whenever I hold Alt+ select a word or double click a word, the word gets yellow highlighted for a quick second then gets un-highlighted and no dictionary or definition of the word pops up. It happens on every websites that I visit such as Reddit, gsmarena, amazon etc.
Developer responseposted a year agoHi Matt, sorry to hear about that. We'd like to investigate the issue to fix it. Could you please submit a description of what exactly you are doing, on which websites, and how the app behaves at firstname.lastname@example.org? That would be super helpful.
