    I recently installed Firebird, and am enjoying its use. I had been
    using Mozilla 1.4 for about two weeks. There is one particular
    feature, that had worked with Mozilla, I can not get to work at all on
    Firebird. It is a dictionary lookup button from Merriam-Webster. To
    install this button you simply drag the link onto the links toolbar. I
    have done so but it is non-operational on Firebird. Other javascript
    examples work, for instance, scrolling banners and mouse sensitive
    buttons. Does anybody know what the trouble could be?

    P.S. Below is the script that activates the dictionary funtion.


    javascript:Qr=document.selection.createRange().text;if(!Qr){void(Qr=prompt('Enter
    word to find in Merriam-Webster
    Dictionary:',''))}if(Qr)location.href='http://www.m-w.com/cgi-bin/dictionary?'+escape(Qr)+'

    So on and so forth.

    Suffering from a brain freeze, I had used the wrong link (one for I.E.).
    All is well now.
