This usually happens when I have Wikipedia search enabled because there is more text but not always.
Scroll bars do not show. When I resize the window the scroll bars will sometimes show but I cannot scroll DOWN. Whatever type existed in the window at the original search remains and will not let me see the remaining text. Clicking on "A"/"a" changes font size but does not load the remaining type.

when I search for "W. C. Fields" I have much more content to view but cannot.

How can I get Dictionary to display working scroll bars?
Is there a dictionary update available? What is the last version compatible with 10.5?

This is what I have:
*Dictionary Version 2.0.2 (51.4)*
*© Copyright 2005-2007 Apple Inc., All rights reserved.*
Mac OS X (10.5.7)
