- by zensir, 2 months agoRated 5 out of 5I works fantastically in my Big Sur macbook. What you have to do is to allow firefox to always run the MacOS Dictionary by typing "dict://test". in the address field of your FF browser and click "always..." and now it will always work.

This extension adds a "Lookup in dictionary" option when you right click a selected word on a page. What this does is open the as "dict://". You can try the same thing from the browser bar. E.g. type "dict://test". I noticed that I first had to use the "dict://" URI from the browser bar manually and associate it with the OSX Dictionary application before the plugin would actually do something for me.

Uses the in-built MacOS Dictionary.app rather than leaking your dictionary requests to online services. Works as advertised.
