One of the best add-ons I've ever used with FF. This is something I can't do without since I can't spell to save my life. To bad it's not compatible with the new release FF (and TB) keeps bugging me to download (win7). Hopefully it will be soon.

Working now with Mac FF8 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been using DictionarySearch for years and rely on so much that if it had remained incompatible in FF8, I would've stayed with the insecure FF 7.0.1. Unfortunately, even after incrementing the maxVersion from 7.* to 8.* in its install.rdf, Mac FF8 still would not declare DictionarySearch compatible. Thanks to Steven's suggestion on 11/14/11 (below), I added Mozilla's Add-on Compatibility Reporter extension, followed its procedure for testing and deeming extensions compatible, and DictionarySearch is now functional once again. Whew!

I found that it will work with FF 8.0 if you use the Add On Compatibility Reporter.

Firefox 8.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The extension works fine here (with no errors in the error console) if I manually bump the maxVersion from 7.* to 8.* in the install.rdf file.

Goes beyond a dictionary Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is cool I use it as a Google/Wiki/Dictionary search context menu and it speeds my work up a lot.

FF 7.x Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For me it works fine with the install.rdf trick. (Win7)
Thanks for the explanation!

"install.rdf trick doesn't seem to work in this case."

Really? I modified the value '6.*' to '7.*' in the 'install.rdf', pushed the modified 'install.rdf' back into the latest 'Dictionary Search' .xpi, Installed the modified .xpi via the 'AddOns Manager|Extensions|Install AddOns from File...' and it worked for FF 7.0 installed on both my Desktop and my Netbook. (Anyone unsure of what I'm typing about here should do a Search for: "modifying .xpi" with their favorite search engine.)

Keep on!

One great step forward, one back ?

VERY good add-on, worthy to get and support author. Sorely needs to be usable with Thunderbird 6, and even with browser Firefox 6 and above.

Favorite Add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the first add-on I install when dealing with new installations of Firefox. A must have! Still wish there were room for more dictionaries (8? 10?) :)

Mike Parker - Thanks so much for the update there! Was waiting so impatiently for an FF4 update, this is seriously one of the most useful addons I got when I'm writing, can barely survive without it!!

DictionarySearch will work with Firefox 4 if you unzip the .XPI file and change the "maxVersion" field in the INSTALL.RDF file to something like 4.5.

Or you can download a copy that I updated myself. This .XPI file can be installed directly into FF4:

Great plugin! The only bad thing is the title as it is a bit misleading; you can use this to search anything obviously in the simplest way.

One suggestions: make it open a tab next on the list instead to the end.

It used to open a new window with the definition of the word that I highlighted but now, with this latest version, it simply opens a new tab to see the definition. What happened to the opening of a new window with the definition?

Moreover, when I highlight a word (say conspicuous), I right-click on it and it says "Search Dictionary for "conspicuous" " and not "Dictionary Search for "conspicuous" " as your picture shows!

Great addon + a suggestion Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on really, thanks.

An option in preferences about "Open Dictionary tab in foreground/background" would be appreciated.
