Seopped working Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It worked very well, but stopped with Firefox 29 and still the same with version 30. When the Wikipedia or Wiktionary window should open only a small window shows a message "Looking up xxxxxxx on Wikipedia". I removed and reinstalled, but no way.

The developer does not offer any contact, but only a way to donate... strange. Not possible to give this add-on a 5 star, as it might deserve, because this seems to be permanent.

it doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I'm using ff 29.0 version, and it doesn't work
- failed to activate the function by pressing alt/shift button (yes it works using ctrl button)
- it is still faster looking up the definition in new tab instead of using this addons because its endless loading

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

While it's a wonderful and most useful addon, it doesn't work properly with FF version 29.0 and there is nowhere to report the problem.

Useful extension but few improvements will be great, like wiktionary in other languages and ability to use context-menu

Unfortunately, Wiktionary definitions don't show most of the the time.
Wikipedia lookup works well, but the "floating window" should be moveable, and there should be a "open in new tab" button to pop out the content onto a full page.
Links within the floating window also do not function, which is a big minus for functionality.

An interesting solution for a common problem. Definitely saves time

Opens in it's own type of window. Otherwise well made. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

First, to comment on some nice things in this add-on.
-Useful and functional add-on, while also providing a clean look
-I like the bar at the top. I also really like how when using the back and forward buttons, the page changes instantly. Faster than it does through the web browser. This might be because of the many add-ons I have installed and they are not enabled within your add-on.

I don't like how it opens in its own type of window.
-This is not preferable for me because I am reverted to the default smooth scrolling in Firefox, and I like using my SmoothWheel add-on.
-By opening Wikipedia in it's own type of window, it is not saved in the history of Firefox. So there could be options for the user in the settings to do this (for people who like choice), I think it would good for there to be an option to save the Wikipedia results by default, and not the dictionary results by default.

I'm saying "it's own window" because I don't know how else to describe it. But another add-on that I use called FoxLingo that functions similarly to QuickWiki and opens in a window that does not look like a Firefox window, does not have the problem that it does with the SmoothWheel add-on.
And personally, I prefer the FoxLingo add-on for wiktionary lookup because it provides me with other dictionary results as well, since I see others have commented on that. This is useful because FoxLingo puts a different dictionary result at the top when there is no dictionary entry for wiktionary, which is also when QuickWiki does not work.

Used to be great, but Wiktionary lookup is not reliable Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I (used to) love love love this add-on. More recently, however, the Wiktionary function frequently doesn't work. If not for that, I'd certainly give it a 5-star rating...

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Useful and for me indispensible. Somehow i have a feeling the previous versions were more reliable and quicker. Perhaps others would disagree. Firefox 26.0, Acer Aspire 2.3 GHz laptop.

Love, love, love this add-on! Great extension and it works just fine! However, I was wondering whether you could make one small arrangement so that you are able to put the window wherever you want. Right now the text field cannot be moved...Anyway- thank you for a fanstastic add-on!

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Love this add-on. Really simple and handy, but sometimes it can't parse wiktionary pages. For example, it shows blank page for "framework". Hope it might be fixed.

Good add-on! Why not a similar add-onfor translating? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very good & useful add-on!! I became "addict" of this, using it when reading pdf documents, but unfortunetely it works only on internet...
Idea : why not develop a similar add-on to directly translate words on WordReference? It would be very useful also!

Greek plz! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great addon! Could you please add greek to the
supported wikipedia languages?

Great app but doesn't recognize words in ALL CAPS Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a great application, but if a term is in ALL CAPS and I highlight it and use QW to find it in Wikipedia, the app says it's not there--even if it actually is. Could you fix it so it recognizes terms whether they're upper- or lowercase or any combination thereof?

Also, if we use QW to look up a term in Wikipedia and then click a link in the open window, it opens a new tab. However, if the page doesn't download, we can't close the open window by clicking outside it. Would be helpful if you could fix it so it closes whenever we click outside.

Please add a function: Hovering a link while surfing inside wikipedia shows a preview of the wikipedia page it points to.

I have preffered WikiLook over QuickWiki for many years now because it had that one function. Sadly, WikiLook is no longer being updated for the newer versions of FF, and the IT guys made me update my Firefox version.

A ton of thanks, and the fifth star await you the day you add this simple feature.

Är väldigt nöjd med den här! Vet inte vad jag gjorde utan den. :)

Fixed for FF v22! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Most impressed by the speedy update to functionality in FF v22, albeit via your own website. Well done and thank you for looking after this indispensable addon!
