In Chrome, if you type a word followed by "def" or "definition" or "meaning" it shows you the full definition right in the search bar, without having to press "enter" to complete the search. Can we get the same thing in Firefox? It would be very convenient.

Strollin' around

I used to use this feature too.

For a workaround, while you're waiting for possible implementation in Firefox, I found I get pretty good results from saving my favorite dictionary site as a search engine on Firefox, and setting its shortcut to @def or @define.

This article talks about how to add search engines to Firefox. 

Making moves

I use this in Chrome too - please add to Firefox
