    Hello

    I just don't know where to post this, but here goes.

    I used to use some very handy word reference search engines in Firefox, which would just allow me to tyupe a word into the Firefox search box after having selected the appropriate wordreference search engine (e.g. FR -> EN), which would take me direct to the corresponding page on wordreference.com.

    I can't seem to find any info on these on the site. Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    PS: to moderators, if you know of a better place for this, please move my post.

    OK, my bad, I have found what I was looking for.

    Anyone who is intereseted can find them here: mycroft.mozdev.org/search-engines.html?name=wordreference

    They are VERY handy.

    Why are these not listed on the wordreference homepage???!!!

    That's third-party software. We list something even better: using the search shortcut capability within your existing browser, no plug-in installation required. :)

    Links appear in both the dictionaries and on the WordReference homepage. Please see:

    Firefox users: search shortcuts for the fastest search of WordReference.
    Chrome users: see the Chrome shortcuts for your address bar for faster searches.

    Mac users will find some information here: Support for Safari
