Buggy with Firefox 13.0.1 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

When using a WSIWYG message box on a social media forum, I get this error repeatedly:

TypeError: text.value is undefined

I got the error after installing Define Word. The error kept recurring until I disabled Define Word.

The error occurs when right-clicking on selected text.

I am using Firefox 13.0.1

If there is a more appropriate place to report a bug, let me know.

entries in defineword.js gets overwritten with update Rated 5 out of 5 stars

great tool, but with every update my customizations that get stored in:
defaults\preferences\defineword.js
get overwritten.

That's a bug

If your customizations get overwritten with future versions, that is a bug that I'll need to look into. Do note that the very latest version does ignore your old settings because of a Mozilla requirement to store them in a new location.

I miss it... we need this add-on to be updated for ff4

can you please add the feature:

Double click word to define, which shows in a pop up bubble, not a new tab?
That's all I need. Is there another add on that does that?
I am primarily a chrome user and there is an excellent extension in chrome that does that, simple define the word in a pop up bubble.

An excellent add-on for Firefox giving quick and easy access to word definitions from many sources. It also allows the user to add more dictionary sources manually, for example to use the Oxford Dictionaries Online site, simply add the following:

http://oxforddictionaries.com/search?searchType=dictionary&isWritersAndEditors=true&searchUri=All&q={search}&_searchBtn=Search&contentVersion=WORLD

under Add-ons > Define Word > Options > Add

Works a treat!

For those who use AutoContext, why do you need this add-on? You could just simply use Add to SearchBar to add any site you want in conjunction with AutoContext. This way it allows you to use your own dictionary sites and not pre-configured.

correction Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I don't know what went wrong here. This is my corrected review. After stumbling upon those bugs on first usage, I went again to the add-on's preferences and restored the default engines and pressed OK first to get sure it's in default state. Then re-opened it and did not try to delete all default engines as my first step. This time I first added my own engines. When I finished, I was able to safely delete the default engines then. However, no matter how often I try to replace the menu's label "Define {word}" with "Lookup {word}", that doesn't work. It would be nice if this could be fixed, because looking up a word in a dictionary is not looking up a definition. Also there are people who don't want English in the context menu, adjusting it to their localization of Firefox.

Fixed in 0.9.3

The bug you mention has been fixed in 0.9.3, which also adds ff 3.6 support. It was uploaded about a week ago and will probably soon come through the review process...

Define Word 0.9.0.2 & FF 3.5.1. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm running Define Word 0.9.0.2 with FF 3.5.1. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.1) Gecko/20090715 Firefox/3.5.1 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) - Build ID: 20090715094852.

How? I use Mr Tech Toolkit 6.0.3.4. MrTT alows you to disable version checking during install download.

Easy and clean. Have been using MrTT since FF1.5. My experience : 99.8% g version check can be bypassed and the extension/addon works just fine!

Please, please, PLEASE update this so it is available for Firefox 3.5. I loved it when I used it on 3.1, but I went to FF 3.5 last night and I already miss this add-on.

3.5 version ploaded

I uploaded a version for ff3.5 a couple of weeks ago, but it's taking a while to make its way through the approvals process.

Hopefully it won't be much longer now! :)

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

In my opinion this app is obsolete or better yet surpassed by Auto Context. Which utilizes a feature called Search With. Search With utilizes the search bar. So if you use say the add on "Add to Search Bar" then you can add any site you want that is related to defining words. My profile at this moment is setup like that.

I hope your add-on will be available for firefox-3.5 soon! Thank you for your extremely useful work.

Great add-on Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've been using it for quite some time now and it is just great. I can't imagine browsing now without your add-on.
It has just one minus, you cannot export the definitions list.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.0.2). 

Exporting

I have thought of that - it wouldn't be hard to do. However, what would you export to, and why?

I am keen to keep the extension to what is needed, without too much duplication of effort. Have you tried OPIE? It's able to export and import settings from all of your extensions, in one handy package!

Just what I wanted!

It's perfect for quickly defining a word you come across on a web page.

There's another add-on that is specific to reference.com, etc., but this one is much better because it does the search automatically with a whole bunch of search engine options.

If one search engine doesn't have a definition, or if you'd like another perspective, you can quickly search using another search engine.

More additions Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A wonderful add-on. Just what I've been looking for. Easy to use. Adding new references could be a little bit easier. How about an icon as visual aid?

@ S3NTYN3L:

Thanks for the Encarta.

Here is another dictionary: Merriam Webster

It also works for translation sites: LEO (German-English)

Good suggestions

Those are good suggestions; I am working on a new version that has a few more default items but also some other changes that should make it easier to change Define Word in the direction you suggest later.

Thanks
