This extension adds a context menu item for selected text that provides more information (from the Unicode database) about the characters selected.
Fixed hexidecimal display.
Converted to a Web Extension for compatibility with new versions of Firefox. Also updated to Unicode 9.0.0.
Updates Unicode database to 8.0, and supports child process (e10s).
Add support for Firefox 4, and drop support for versions less than 3.
Fix a CID conflict with about:accessibilityenabled, discovered in bug 575744.
This version makes the dialog resizable on Windows and updates to Unicode 5.1.0 (from 5.0.0).
This version adds support for Thunderbird (identifying characters in the contents of email messages), although I couldn't get the context menu item placement the way I wanted. It also adds an icon.
This initial version shows the character, the Unicode codepoint, and the character description. Descriptions are available for characters whose names are in the Unicode database, for Hangul syllables, and for CJK characters, although the descriptions of CJK characters are an unconfigurable combination of a few pieces of data.
