I stopped developing this extension because Mozilla changed the API for Firefox completely. Since the developers at Leo.org forked my code some years ago for providing the exactly same extension as mine - without contacting me for community work - it makes no sense for me porting my code to the new API. Maybe I will fork their code some day to add my keyboard shortcut feature but I don't know actually. I am not interested in co-working with them anymore and am not using Leo.org as translation service anymore. My extension had about 10.000 users and I got about 20$ since 2005 for many hours of learning the Mozilla API and writing the code... :(
Searches for marked words in the database at dict.leo.org and opens the result in a new tab. The fastest way to search at leo.org. It supports English, French, Spanish, Chinese, Italian Russian, Polish and Portuguese to German translation.
Since I am using leo.org very much every day and I really needed a very simple way to search the database at leo.org, I decided to write my own - context menu based - addon for Firefox. It simply searches for selected words and opens the result in a new tab or window.
Please download this extension at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/leo-search/.
