Master Password Timeout

May have affected my options Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I'm not sure if it's related after installing Master Password Timeout, Tools>Options>Contents temporarily would not display settings or allow adjustments to any of the Contents parameters like Popup-blocking, Java, or JS.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.7). 

DictionarySearch (Official Version)

My favorite Plugin Not yet rated

I like reading uninterrupted, with no loss of continuity, while this little beauty quickly and quietly does its work in another tab -- perfect for someone who writes in several foreign languages. Also great for using legal, medical, or any other dictionary (a longer dictionary list would be nice). Kudos and many thanks to author Jaap Haitsma for leveraging Firefox abilities with this wonderful, utile application.

To "Ander," on How To Add a "Dictionary:"

Using Wired.com as an example: Do a search on Wired. When it's finished, copy the part of the Wired URL in address bar that's before the word you chose to search, i.e.,

http://www.wired.com/search?query=

into your clipboard. Assuming you've installed Dictionary Search, go to Tools > Addons.
Select DS. Click Options to open its dialog box. Copy-paste clipboard contents into
DIctionary #1's URL field, adding a "$" to the end. In Dictionary #1's Text field, enter

Wired for "$"

with double quotes around the dollar sign. Click OK.

This last part may answer Part 2 of "Adrigon"'s question -- enter text of your preference in the Text field.
You can enter "My Words" before the "$," and "My word 'CONTENT' " will appear in your search's dropdown.

FF facilitates address bar keyword searches of any website with search functions, using much the same process.
