Immersion (dictionary hints & translation box)

It seems that dictionary hints sometimes work when I hover over the word and sometimes they don't, or if they work it is a bit sluggish.

Also if I accidentally click anywhere on the sentence I'm working on the translation box closes.

Would it be better if we could open the translation box by clicking the sentence and only close it by clicking the x or hitting Esc ?

Yes, please fix this!

I'm beginning to wonder if the thing with the Dictionary Hits not working after awhile is intentional- maybe it's thought that if we've been logged in and working on translations/lessons that we don't need the extra help?

I don't think that this is the case here but that's what I've been wondering since I've been having the same thing happen to me as well- anyway, I hope that they make it so that we'll always have the hints, they're good to have & so helpful!
