Hi!

My system:

MacBook
Sierra 10.12.6
FireFox 56.0b9 (64-bit)

Problem:

When I need to define a word on a webpage I right-click to select the word
and then try to left-click on the "Define..."option.

But "Loading..." appears and . . . nothing. No definition of the selected
word appears.

How to make "Define..." work?

Thanks!

PS: I do not want to upgrade either my OS to either "High Sierra" or "Mojave"
nor do I want to upgrade FireFox to the latest version becauseI like having
all my applications and extensions & addon's working, thank you!

simple: why do you ask then if you are not willing to use current and more bugfree builds, either firefox or osc?
you wont easy find people using your combination. good luck.

PS in special i maybe dont no "Define" in firefox, you speak about the dictionary and users additional words?
if it got stuck - use safe-mode or try a new profile.

Yet you are using the ninth Beta build (note the b9) of Firefox 56.0 (there were twelve Beta builds for 56.0) and not the 56.0.2 Release. If you were to do a internal update right now you would get the 63.0b13 Beta build due to being Beta channel.

Addons is a general term that groups together the seperate Extensions, Themes (image and complete), Plugins, search engines, dictionaries, language packs.
