how do I find the definition of a word?

Posted

I used to be able to place the cursor over a word, press ALT and left click, and Ans.com would come up with the definition. I am no longer able to do that (except if I am using IE as my browser. However, I use Mozilla Firefox all the time. How can I get this feature to work in Firefox (like it used to)?

Do you see any disabled extensions in Tools > Add-ons > Extensions that might have added that feature previously?
