Guess it's time to let go...
This was a great add-on, before rtf invaded the editors. Now, it doesn't even switch language when the button is clicked.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This desperately needs an update for some (I guess) never kind of textfields. For example the youtube (g+) comments.
Switching simply isn't performed. The last used dictionary - in a textfield where this addon works - will be the one used.

It do work with Thunderbird, this is how to enable it:

extensions.dictionary-switcher.autodetect

When switching to another tab, and then switching back, the selected language is again the wrong one. The "automatic detection" also seems to trigger at random intervals.

I have to correct this extension's decisions every time the conventional way, at least every time I switch back from another tab. This is frustrating and just creates more work.

Excelente, indispensable

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Good add-on, however I've no idea how to turn on automatic switching of languages in Thunderbird. It it working?

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Quite smart, and it usually works great. I cannot make it work on Thunderbird though (or FossaMail which I now use). It's a 5-star with TB working.

A suggestion: add a "priority switch" for the English language. Some users might usually or always prefer en-GB instead of en-US (or en-AU etc.)

Indispensable language tool, will definitely change your browsing life. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This makes my life debating on forums typing email and writing reviews so much more seamless. It's so good to have this running in the background checking which language you're typing in and deciding within 10 words to switch to the appropriate language. Even though I have french, spanish and italian which are all rather similar (and english to french).

I wish it was integrated into the OS. Ubuntu would benefit a lot from this type of feature, I wouldn't need it on FF any more and all my personal dictionaries would be centralized. In 5 years maybe...

Anyway, amazing job, simple task yet so powerful...

PS: for some reason, in this text box, I had to change languages twice in order to get it detecting mistakes. Has hardly happened before but ironically it did here.

An interesting example of dictionaries.

Can work in TB 27+ Rated 3 out of 5 stars

As the previous review says, only one line needs to be changed to make this addon work in recent TB versions :)

But what he suggests is for making it work in Firefox. To make it work in Thunderbird, change the same line, but in file mail.js (inside dictionary-switcher.jar!/chrome/content).

Manual fix for version 1.3.2:
Changing line 49 of content/browser.js (dictionary-switcher.jar) to
var spellchecker = Components.classes[spellclass].getService(Components.interfaces.mozISpellCheckingEngine);
seems to fix the problem.

Would be nice to see an official version 1.3.3 soon :-)

The dictionary listing bug has just been "fixed"! :-D Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The code in the documentation was wrong and it has been replaced. Apparently that code fixed the problem... I can't wait to see the fix coded in the extension! It will work then... For those who used the workaround, it will have to be reversed...

I love it !!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Before, it didn't work so well, but NOW it does !
I'm switching language every five minutes between French and English, and this simply does the trick !
Most of the time the dictionary switch is automatic, and if not, it's only a click away.
A real time saver this is !!!
Thanks !

simply does not work... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

... anymore in TB 24.01, whereas version 1.15 did perfectly.

And I am neither able nor eager to make the (at least two) complicated modifications suggested by the author.

Therefore I disabled this add-on, and will remove it if no functioning version appears soon.
Sorry, because it was really useful and deserved 5 stars.

Though it was great in the past it keeps freezing FF for several minutes on specific sites (e.g. facebook)

Repeated script crashes Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Ditto Mortaest comment. Very annoying all the constant script crashes.

Dao Gottwald (MrWarper), could you please explain further how to do your recommended fix (see below)?

<< Edit the install.rdf file inside any dictionaries folders or .xpi archives (check under both your profile and application folders just in case) and delete / comment out the line "<em:type>64</em:type>" >>

Very good idea, I always need to switch between several languages...

But scripts crashes and so does firefox (new 25 version doesn't correct that)
