Many Mac apps have some useful menu options in the right click menu of text windows: 

"Search in Google", 
"Search in "Spotlight", 
"Look Up in Dictionary"

Feature request: To have the same items included in Thunderbird's menu when you right click a selected text.

Reproducible: Always

"Look Up in Dictionary" can now be easily implemented, at least for OS X, since Bug 308471 is fixed. It already works on trunk if you mark a word and press Cmd-Ctrl-D. For other OS'es I don't know.
