    Giving Dictionary permanent permission to open
    « on: March 14, 2017, 11:33:48 AM »

    I'm on Sierra 10.12.3 (16D32).

    Whenever I hi-lite a word, right-click, and choose "Search Dictionary"
    I'm presented with a dialog box to allow or cancel this request:
    "Do you want to allow this page to open “Dictionary”?"

    Please see the attached screenshot.


    Why, if Dictionary is an Apple product embedded in the Sierra OS,
    why should I have to grant it permission to open everytime!?

    How to turn this off?

    How to permanently allow Dictionary to simply look up selected words?
