The add-on is very good and useful.

I am rating it 5 stars but notice that it still doesn't work with the CardBook add-on.

Until it works, I have it disabled.

This add-on hasn't been maintained for several years.

The official one is now mine: "British English Dictionary (Marco Pinto)".

Please notice that Mozilla updated all Firefox spellers to WebExtensions, but they only work with Firefox 62+ due to a bug in Firefox 60ESR.

Thunderbird still uses Legacy Extensions, so you can download the version here in ATN.

People keep complaining about this add-on "updated" by Lucas.

I too tried to contact Lucas a couple of years ago or so but I never got any reply, so I "forked" the dictionary.

If you see that things don't change, always keep in mind that there are other persons working on the subject.

Lucas, I know you will receive an e-mail regarding this post. Could you at least now-and-then increase the version number of the add-on?


Kind regards,
