Just downloaded this to use for the "Translate this Link" option alone so that I don't have to open every incomprehensible link before translating to English.
Unfortunately however, it wouldn't even provide the "Translate this link" (or "Translate this selection") option to the right click menu unlike the screenshots provided. Couldn't even spot the options in either Menu Editor or Tab Mix Plus lists so it's definitely not disabled from my side!
I also couldn't find any options to enable the right click context menus in case they are disabled by default, but the only options available were that of a keyboard shortcut, the preferred language and whether to open the translated page in a separate tab or the same one.
Tried with Mandarin, Cantonese, Arabic, French - same old same old. :-(
The addon hasn't been updated in over a year, but seeing as the dev has recently replied back to a review just last month, I find the Fx 28 incompatibility(?) a tad weird as the addon is seemingly still in development. Or am I doing something wrong? Or is it actually clashing with some other addon that I have? Dunno.
I'm loathe to 1 star reviews, but as long as Bradley doesn't address and rectify whatever issues there might be, my hands are tied. I do apologize. If this works as advertized, it looks as though from the screenshots provided, that it would be a five stars worthy addon.
I'll definitely change my rating accordingly as and when applicable.
EDIT: - @ Bradley Rosenfeld - Thanks for the reply. Will pretend not to have noticed the caustic sarcasm. Will go over to Github to do the needful. Maybe a full list of enabled addons will help in case of compatibility issues.
Fantastic add-on. Have been using for a long time now. Currently using with version 27.0b2 on Windows 8.1 (x64). But hasn't been in development for almost two years. No response on Deviant Art either :-(
Hopefully, the development will continue post Australis as well :-)
EDIT: Thanks for the response muckSponge. Really delighted to know about the ongoing development. Too bad Australis is making your job so much tougher. I'm sure, the end result will be well worth the hard work.
Looking forward to trying out the new features that you wrote about as and when the new code lands. Congrats once again on a great idea brilliantly executed and good luck with the forthcoming version(s) as well. Cheers. :-)
Firstly, @ StarlightShine - By default, you'll get an icon on the addon bar and/or address bar. Also, a right click context menu entry. Just select "Capture Visible Part" or "Capture Full Page" and then edit the pic as you please from the screenshot. Click "Done" and choose to save as a jpg/png file.
Now, as for the review, this is a good screenshot tool that works as advertized for the most part. Does everything most other free tools do including basic annotations and editing options, offers cloud storage, gives resolution for cropped portion, lets you save as jpg etc.
On the negative side, it doesn't capture pages with infinite scroll, doesn't have more advanced annotations and editing features, doesn't capture embedded flash and java, doesn't copy pic to clipboard either before or after editing and most depressingly, doesn't have support for other file formats (including gif), and doesn't capture local pages (offline) including "about:xyz" pages.
I don't know any free tool that does all of the above, (more advanced editing, Flash and Java capture, offline page capture, animation capture) so I'm sticking with this. Fireshot Pro (probably) does some of the above, but can't argue against the price. I'm getting a heck of a lot more than what I'm paying for, so 4 stars definitely.
If the dev is reading this - Are there any plans of introducing some of the features that I wrote about? Which ones are Implementable and which ones would either be too complicated or technically unfeasible?
I've been using this theme with FF on my Win8 installation for a while now and I love it. Not too dark and grim, not too bright and cheery. Just perfect for me. Thank you 3rdkray :-)
@ Hilary - Too bad they're confusing you with the dead actress LOL but maybe that's because you've not updated this add-on like - forever!
Not that it's gonna help the disambiguation bit on Google though LOL!
But anyways, coming to the extension itself, nice job, but as many of my prior reviewers have requested already, please do consider updating this one to add the functionality of showing the tab count on the navigation toolbar instead of the space consuming status bar :(
Works flawlessly on 21 Beta. Nice options as well. Does exactly what it says. And it just works! Good one :-)

The "Greenbox" as you so eloquently put it, can be easily closed by clicking on the 'Close' text and 'X' icon on the bottom right corner of the 'box'.
As for the extension itself, it is a 5/5. Love the customizable options. Only wish the add-on bar control can be shifted to the top like ABP or something ;-)
[FF 12.0 Beta Build 3,4 (FF X86 on Win7 X64)]Great add-on thus far. The lightweight page translation is an absolute delight.
I'll still rate it 4 stars for the stellar service, but misses out on the 5th because the default Wiktionary settings are extremely annoying. Had to tweak the settings to get it to work exactly the way I want it to.
