Define Word Firefox Extension v0.5.1

The Define Word plugin has been localized to Italian and Danish – thanks to Luana from the eXtenZilla.it team for doing most of the work!

At the same time, I added wiktionary.org as a default engine – to get it, download Define Word 0.5.1.

I have also submitted this version to the official download site, and it will probably appear in the next few weeks. Thanks for all your comments and feedback!

  1. I would have liked to try this, but it wants to directly install and that makes me not comfortable.

  2. I think the old version was more user friendly: the new one requires two steps to activate, the old one only one.

  3. Note: This extension does not work with the Auto Copy 0.5 extension enabled! Can’t have it all, apparently 🙁

  4. Wonderful extension, would love to have it in Thunderbird too. Thanks!

  5. Hi Allan,

    I was searching for a nice tool like yours.

    Just an idea, if I choose to open the search results in another window, why not change the size of this new window, to fixed size or fitted.

    Thanks a lot.

    Regards Frank

  6. This is a very useful plugin.

    I am wondering if the result can be shown in a tooltip so that we don’t need to switch between tabs/windows everytime we search for a definition.

    Besides, we can probably set up a shortcut key for each defined engine so that we can select a word and press the schortcut key combination to show the definition, instead of choosing it in a submenu.

  7. When I used French-English dictionary, I found that the alphabet with accent cannot be translated correctly, which means, I cannot search for words like étrangére, déjà, etc, in the following search engines:
    http://fr.wordreference.com/fr/en/translation.asp?fren={search}
    http://w3.oqlf.gouv.qc.ca/BDL/gabarit_bdl.asp?T1={search}

    However, it works correctly in some other search engines, for example:
    http://www.leconjugueur.com/php/newconjugue.php?lang=fr&oblige=N&verbe={search}
    http://fr.wiktionary.org/wiki/{search}

    Is there already a way to fix this problem?

  8. Great extension!
    However its disabled is Firefox 1.5 beta 2 – not compatible. Will you be updating it in the near-ish future for the later firefoxes ?
