Tremendously useful -- webextension version? Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Hi FFJon, Rikaichan is an indispensable tool for quite a few users; may I ask, will you be writing a webextensions version for FF57+, or is that just too much work?? It would be sorely missed if that's the case, so I hope you are able to find some time to write a webextensions version! Thank you regardless for this tremendous tool, a boon for the multilingual inclined amongst us.This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Thank You Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thanks, very good program! It is very helpful for me in e-mail communication with Japanese.
I prefer the Mozilla Thunderbird only because it allows to use Rikaichan. But new versions of this mail agent not support Rikaichan, it was a problem for me. I had to search and install old version...
I think, updating would be good idea )
And expansion in Opera and Google Chrome too... Many users in Russia not very like browser Mozilla. But Rikaikun in Opera and Chrome don't have Russian dictionaries. I'm suffering from it.
!!! But popup window really almost always hides the text being read, it is misery and irritating, pleeeease, fix it (シ_ _)シ
Too sticky Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Good program and mostly does what it should do. The only downside is that you can't leave sticky mode since the last update which is pretty annoying.
Updated Rikaichan Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I still have proplem with the placement of the popup. The popup is hovering over, the text is hidden so it's a bit unconfortable for reading. Please advise me if there is a way to fix this, I really need Rikaichan on my PC back to normal.

No longer able to read .txt files Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Rikaichan is great, but recently something has changed. I have a set of UTF-8 txt files which can be read normally on version 2.09.1 and the lookup pop-up works fine, but now after upgrading to 3.02, the pop-up is not working at all. It's the same set of files each time, and web pages are working fine, just txt files are a problem.
Placement issue fixed in latest version (3.02) Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I had the same problem as the 3.00 reviews below, but it's now been fixed and back to being great.
3.0 window placement Rated 1 out of 5 stars
The window simply doesn't appear anymore on OS X.
Broken by February 2017 update (Rikaichan 3.00) Rated 2 out of 5 stars
The hover now hides the text being read, so it is not usable anymore.
I hope the bug can be fixed, thanks! :-)
I loved Rikaichan, but Rated 1 out of 5 stars
....the new placement of the text makes it unusable. Not uncomfortable, unusable. Plus I spent 15 minutes figuring out why the Send button went gray...This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.00).
Love it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It's a very convenient add-on, especially when you need help with reading kanji and don't know certain grammatical structures yet.
Great for casually practising Japanese on the go, without having to copy and paste every single word into an online dictionary.
I miss the old icon..it was so cute :(
Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Really useful add-on! It is too tedious to look up each word in the dictionary. A powerful learning tool when combined with Anki.
For those of you having problems with this add-on on Firefox 51.0: install the 3.00 version, not the 2.x
Does not work on Firefox 51.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I love RIkaichan and it has been a huuuge help to learn Japanese while reading stuff online. Thank you so much !
BUUUUT it doesn't work anymore on FIrefox 51.0...so I'm just putting the 1 star rating to alert the dev team !
UPDATE: The latest Rikaichan beta (3.00rc2) version works well so far, I update my rating to 5 stars :)
Firefox 51.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thank you Rikaichan team for the really useful tool you´ve developed. Unfortunately, the add on does not work with the newest version of Firefox (51.0). I´ve had to reinstall the older version to make Rikaichan work again, but it would be great if it worked with the newest version too.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.09.1-signed).
Problems with latest Windows 10? Rated 4 out of 5 stars
been using this for over 8 years.
Ever since a few weeks ago it stopped working on Windows 10. Maybe I need to donate to get it to work.

Bug report: Corrupt add-on Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Giving 4 stars. It works perfectly, but there's a glitch (It says that the add-on is corruypt) that prevents me from installing it on my Firefox. I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 as my OS.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.09.1-signed).
Really useful for japanese learners! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This extension does a really complete job at translating japanese! Even katakana words can be translated which helps alot since many katakana words are japanese-made english which I normally cannot understand. And its really useful to activate and apply to certain keywords that I don't understand on japanese news websites.
A possible improvement or addition would be to able to translate entire paragraphs or sentences using this functionality you already have for words - that would help alot in understand difficult text of japanese.
Good, Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Awesomeness Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thank you very much for such an AWESOME & USEFUL addon.
Looks like toggle shortcuts doesn't work on Mac. Using the latest version 2.09.1. Tried different settings / different combination, but with the same result - it just won't toggle rikaichan.
