- by Firefox user 14953919, duela 2 egunRated 3 out of 5The extension is not working. It does not show the definitions of even the most simple words of English dictionary. How is that even reasonable!
There is definitely some bug in it which is required to be fixed as soon as possible.
- by pancakess, duela 24 egunRated 5 out of 5i like how simple this is. i mainly use this when im reading novels. some issues is that sometimes when i use it as im reading it just doest feel complete i guess (sometimes). adding search function in the toolbar would be great and maybe options change the colour of the bubble and adjust its size. i dont know it just doesnt feel like a full and complete experience compared to chr0mes. ah also supports for other languages like chinese and korean would be nice. other than that solid 5/5*
im looking forward to future updates!
- by Kai, duela 25 egunRated 4 out of 5i like the simplicity of the graphics, the in-page pop-up, the short defintions and the google-generated content is better than competitors (mirriam webster, for example), HOWEVER, after a few hours of using, it started giving me "sorry, no definition found" for whatever i click on. this has not resolved even after uninstalling and reinstalling the add on, so very sad about this as it is otherwise exactly what i'm looking for.
if the developers see this i can't tell you what triggered the add in to stop working. i made sure dom.webcomponents.shadowdom.enabled was enabled (when it stopped working). I do read a lot of stuff on pocket and reader view so maybe it started after some interaction there? maybe there's a clue in the fact that functionality was not restored even after deleting and reinstalling?
EDIT (after response from developer): YES, you were right about it being a VPN issue. As soon as i switch it off the add-on starts to work again. I have changed my rating to 4/5. i tend to have my vpn on most of the time so using this add on will not be particularly useful to me after all, however, i am aware this will only affect a minority of users.
Developer responseposted duela 25 egunI am really sorry you had bad experience with the extension. I would need some logs to exactly find the problem. Were you using any VPN? There might be case that due to excessive usage of addon, google returned captcha and that is why extension was not able to parse word meaning. Whenever you see this issue again, could you try to find meaning of very simple word that surely has meaning and if that returned no definition found, check that you can search on google, I feel this is due to captcha or vpn, somehow google stopped returning results.
