# ⚠️ Read It Before Use

Thanks for using Saladict! Here are a few notes before you start. Also see the complete manual and Q&A.

🚨 If you download Saladict from sites that are not in the offical recommended list, please verify the extension ID on browser Extensions Management page. Saladict extensions with ID other than cdonnmffkdaoajfknoeeecmchibpmkmg (Firefox: [email protected], Edge: idghocbbahafpfhjnfhpbfbmpegphmmp) could have potential risk of malware injection.

# Preset

  1. If you want to enable Saladict on local pages please enable "Allow access to file URLs" on browser Extensions Management page.
  2. Though it is recommmended to use any native PDF viewers you like with Saladict global shortkeys, PDF links can also be automatically opened with Saladict built-in PDF viewer. You can also add sites to PDF Black/White list.
  3. Keyboard shortcuts can be set on browser Extensions Management page.
  4. With other tools you can use Saladict to search text outside of browser.
  5. Page translators are disabled by default. Youdao and Google page translate are deprecated in favor of the official extensions.

# Limitations

  1. Due to browser policies, extensions cannot visit Chrome Web Store/Firefox AMO and other extension's internal pages. But you can bypass that with native search tools.
  2. If you set search mode to "Direct Search" with "Instant Capture", you should also set keyborad shortcuts to toggle Instant Capture.

# Chrome

  1. Chrome 76 contains bug which may cause random extension crashes. Please upgrade to Chrome 77 or newer.
  2. Saldict will not offer a Chrome APP verison as the platform is deprecated by Google.

# Edge

  1. Does not support immersive reader. But you can bypass that with native search tools.

# Firefox

  1. If the browser action panel overflows please drag the Saladict icon out of the drawers.
  2. Youdao page translate has been removed from Firefox as Add-on reviewer requested.

# Opera
