Another (pesky) suggestion for the new viewer: lookup

Well, I am sorry! But I really dislike the working of the new lookup.
While I can see its logic in full screen mode, in my case (desktop with large monitor, viewer taking less than 1/3 screen size) an option to 'open in default browser' as did the previous versions (from 0.9 to 3...., if my memory answers) would be very welcome.
Among other things, I like to put side by side the book with, i.e., 'quotation to identify' and the search results...

The instructions aren't even accurate. It says "double click", but just selecting the text invokes the search.

Further, repeating ctrl-l (the shortcut to toggle the lookup display) returns the text to a different position, about -0.5 each time.

The panel is dockable which means you can float it and put it side by side with your window all you want.

Thanks! Floating it DOES make a difference.
