Opera dictionary

  • I'm a bit weary from typing words about Opera bugs/screw-ups over the years, and also I'm kind of stupid about how all this stuff works, so I hope I don't irritate anyone with this question, but...

    Is the Opera dictionary down? I'm talking about the function in which a user highlights a word on a web page then clicks "Dictionary" in the right-click menu.

    I'm not even sure what I mean by "is it down," because now that I think about it, I don't even know exactly how the whole "Dictionary" thing even worked. I just know that for many years, I've been able to successfully right-click words and land upon their definitions, and now I'm getting a "Connection closed by remote server" message when I do it.

  • To avoid irritating people, don't assume that Opera is to blame for your problems.

    Maybe you “screwed-up?” Merriam websters opens fine for me from Opera 11.64 and 12.16.

    :idea: If you put your OS and other details in your forum signature, it saves us asking, and saves you repeating yourself.

  • I've just teste here and it opened Wikitionary.

  • I get Merriam-Webster dictionary just fine with my Opera 12.14.

  • I got bing translator here :insane: :no:
