Selection Context Search

Postby stevepar » Wed Oct 03, 2018 4:20 am


I wonder if anyone else has encountered the issue I have and if so whether they have found a resolution.

My web browser of choice is Firefox which I have been using for years. I like to use a smaller 'search bar' within the 'tool bar' to facilitate convenient look-ups. I typically have various search engines listed. These can be fairly easily added by going to the website in question", say, and then selecting 'add "' which then adds the search engine as another option to search from the search bar without having to go to website to lookup a word I may encounter. So far so good.

Some years back I found it was easier still to highlight the text I wanted to search and then right-click and then, depending on my Firefox add-ons, select the search engine directly from the right-click menu (it saves having to copy and paste the text in question into the search bar). Then Firefox evolved to FireFox Quantum and all the older add-ons became obsolete. This has required me to find new add-ons to serve the same purpose as older add-ons that are now obsolete. To provide right-click search functionality now I have settled on All fine so far. The problem that I have is what the coding should be in the following

What I know is that it is possible to code the add-on so that it can look-up Thai words directly on, but the question is: what should the search terms be?

Any insights gratefully considered.
