No. Same with me. I cannot go into the dictionary function of French and Japanese dictionaries, and maybe of some other languages (I did not try all of them).
I made however a small sample Japanese-English dictionary (first 50000 entries or so of Jim Breen's Edict) using the pattern of the Kobo English dictionary and so on, rather than the pattern of the Kobo Japanese Dictionary. After installing it in the disguise of the German dictionary it works as expected and I can access the dictionary function too. In order to type Hiragana/Katakana one has however to change the user language to Japanese.
If you would like to search the French dictionary, just rename it to dicthtml-de.zip or another dictionary language that you do not use (and that allows searching).
