I'd really like a pop-up definition when I right click (or double click) on a word.

Double-clicking on a word to get its definition stopped working

The first time I installed, the double-clicking feature worked nicely, but now, it simply stopped working. So, when I'm reading an article online, such as the New York Times, I can right-click on a word to get its defintion, but double-clicking on it will not work anymore. Plus, the "options" in the settings of the extension appears disabled, grayed out. Thanks in advance.

Was this extension recently updated?

Forgive me, I am trying to figure out a problem. My MW dictionary extension disappeared from chrome when I migrated, and I'm trying to find out if this is the same extension that I previously had.
The extension I had created a popup when you highlighted/double clicked a word, and would give you the MW definition without going to a new page. It seems like the behavior for your extension adds a context menu item when you right click. Is this a recent update? Did your app used to behave differently?
I am sorry to bother you! Thanks for any help you might have.

Unabridged Merriam-Webster

If possible could you add an option to look up unabridged merriam-webster instead of regular merriam webster?

The base url for unabridged merriam-webster search is:"search term"

Thank you

The voice prompt stopped working

I love the Merriam-Webster App; however, the voice prompt stopped working. I use it daily! Do you have any suggestions for restoring it?

Inline the definition

What I want is for me to highlight a single word and the definition pops up. Or I highlight and hit a hot key. If ya'll aren't going to do it, I am but I can't make it public with the 1000 hits / day restriction.
