This is an update for closed thread that jscher2000 had a good solution for: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1113353

   " The form calls a script in the background which uses a URL in this form: http://dle.rae.es/srv/search?w=dicho&m=30 The exata is m=30 So try this: http://dle.rae.es/?w=%s&m=30 "

However, it doesn't work 100% of the time... You can see in my image, 30% of them time it just shows blank space (with the correct URL) but if I Refresh here it works! (calls up the dictionary entry correctly)

Any ideas on getting the bookmark to work first-time every-time?

Firefox 56.0.2 Windows

Have you noticed any pattern between new words and words you have looked up before? Just wondering whether there is a problem with incomplete cached pages for words you have looked up before.

Thank you .... good idea... I'm not sure but I'll start taking note of that.

Note that the developer toolbox has a setting to disable the HTTP cache while the toolbox is open.
