Selection Context Search

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

Hi,

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 thai-language.com, and then selecting 'add "thai-language.com.....' which then adds the search engine as another option to search from the search bar without having to go to thai-language.com 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 https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/selection-context-search/. 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 thai-language.com, but the question is: what should the search terms be?

Any insights gratefully considered.
