The writing tools from the pop-up menu when right-clicking a work are not working. Nothing happens when selecting any of the look-ups or searches.

They work fine for me...

Perhaps something has happened to your default browser settings in the OS?

This happened to me many betas ago. I closed Scriv then re-opened it and, suddenly they were working again. Was never able to duplicate it, so I was unable to provide a valid bug report.
FWIW, my writing tools all work now and since that initial glitch.

After reopening Scrivener this morning, all the writing tools work again--just as suggested. Now, that's strange!

Yep, no rhyme or reason. They just check out for a time and then check back in. I wish I could figure it out but haven't been able to force the issue. :(
