- von Rsge, vor 3 JahrenBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenJust a few minutes ago I found out about the many (semi-new ?) configuration options available like the gestures and the micro panel option for the context menu - these are awesome and work really well : )
Still, I have one very small suggestion:
Could you make it so when you click the taskbar icon it automatically puts the cursor into the Translation text field, so you can start typing instantly and not have to click in the field first?
Otherwise, as I said, very good work : )
Edit: Thanks for the reply : )
Well, then you really can't do anything about it : )
I didn't know if you'd also understand German, so I wrote this in English to be safe - also, more people can understand what I wrote this way : )
Antwort des Entwicklersgeschrieben am vor 3 JahrenThanks. The text field should focus automatically, but it doesn't due to a bug in Firefox. It seems they are working on it, but it's not ready yet:
The bug has been fixed in the nightly build of Firefox. So it's going to be available with Firefox 60.
- von Firefox-Benutzer 13621193, vor 3 JahrenBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenDas AddOn ist sehr praktisch und benutzerfreundlich, besonders wenn man bei den AddOn-Einstellungen einstellt, dass neue Ergebnisse im MicroPanal geöffnet werden: Man markiert den zu übersetzenden Text, drückt rechte und linke Maustaste, und in einem kleinen Panel erscheint die Übersetzung.
- von Ghamdia, vor 4 JahrenBewertet mit 1 von 5 SternenLimited LangsIf you're not satisfied with the amount of languages dict.cc (the website) offers, then this add-on clearly is not for you.
All languages available on the website can also be used in the add-on. No reason to give the add-on a bad rating.
Dict.cc is indeed limited, as the first language has to be english or german. But there are a lot more to choose from for the second language: https://browse.dict.cc/
Of course this does not come close to the quantity of languages google offers, but it does yield better results in my opinion.
I hope this helps.
- von Firefox-Benutzer 13101032, vor 4 JahrenBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenHi Lusito!
Working with your great Add-on for Years, but with Firefox 57.0.1 the Micropanel in Version 5.2 doesn't work at all. Also the Micropanel in Beta Version 5.3a unfortunately doesn't work. Is it just me or is it a general Problem? Many Thanks in advance for your help!
Many Greetings from Thailand!
sorry about the delay.. for some reason, I did not get any notification about this post.
The micropanel works fine for me. Is it a specific website on which it doesn't work? (addons.mozilla.org is not allowed for example)
Have you tried using a different method to show the micropanel? Like rocker gestures, quick click or context menu?
What OS are you using?
If everything fails, would you be willing to try some things to find the source of the problem? like test the add-on with a fresh browser profile, to see if it might be some setting or another extension conflicting with this extension.
- von Firefox-Benutzer 13486275, vor 4 JahrenBewertet mit 4 von 5 SternenNeed to improve the speed of translation. If possible, please add more dictionary source instead of only Google Translate!Thanks for your review. The speed of translation depends mostly on the website of dict.cc. Not much I can do about that. If dict.cc would provide a real API, It might be possible to speed it up, but that probably won't happen anytime soon.
This is not using google translate.. it's using dict.cc. I've thought about adding more sources, but that would require a lot of changes, and thus a lot of work. Also those sources would have to agree to this (for example I wanted to add urban dictionary, but at the time, they denied my request).
- von Firefox-Benutzer 13350502, vor 4 JahrenBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenI will have to deactivate this plugin until this is fixed.
The '@' char is required everywhere, now i can't even enter my e-mail adress because this dict quick search toolbar pops up when pressing ALT+Q.
@Follow Up answer
Sorry, i meant Alt Gr + Q. It happened on a Windows 7 Prof System while trying to comment to a Youtube comment.
To test it again, i reactivated the plugin and i think i now narrowed the problem down.
It seems to be, that my keyboard layout was accidently set to the English layout (EN) during that session (i have that windows language keyboard layout icon in the lower right corner) and i didn't noticed that.
When the layout is set to English on the software side in Win 7 pressing Alt Gr + Q will result in this pop-up of the dict search bar.
If i set it back to DE layout in the lower right corner, everything works fine again.
So probably my fault.
I don't know if its possible to make the plugin ignore the key combination of Alt Gr + Q if the layout is accidentally set to English layout but it would be a good thing in my opinion.
I will give the plugin now 5 stars.
Thanks for your answer.Thanks for the report, but that has never been the case for me.
On Windows and Linux, Alt Gr + Q is used for @. Not Alt + Q. Alternatively, Ctrl + Alt + Q can be used, which also does not trigger the add-on.
I've researched Mac, but they seem to use a completely different combination for the @.
Could you give some insight into what system uses this shortcut for the @? (It's not the keyboard layout, as I'm using the german keyboard layout as well)
Sadly, there is no way to change this from firefox. chrome would allow to edit those shortcuts. But I could make this different per OS.
The only other way would be to use a different shortcut or to not have a shortcut. Let me know if you have suggestions.
- von Firefox-Benutzer 10231516, vor 4 JahrenBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenI read your rant ;) Though I do not agree because I think Quantum and Photon are a huge improvements I certainly see that this (repeated) rewrite must have a lot(!) of work. I feel your pain...
As a Nightly user I am very happen with your add-on. Thank you. Especially the Ctrl+Alt click shortcuts are really good (once I found out about it ;).
Previously I always manually went to dict.cc. Now this is a great time saver.
- von Firefox-Benutzer 13179961, vor 4 JahrenBewertet mit 3 von 5 SternenThe first option "translate phrases" isn't available, even not after reinstalling it more than one time.
Lusito, is there no direct translation between English and German possible anymore? There usually was one and on one picture about the add-on it is seen.The only difference between word and phrase translation is what you choose to translate. Just select the phrase you want translated and use one of the available translation methods.
- von Jasso, vor 4 JahrenBewertet mit 2 von 5 SternenOtherwise okay, but on a Mac it's still only the second best option.
This is because of the interface forces an extra step upon the user: They have to pick which languages to translate with every single word.
This might make sense if the user wants to regularly translate from several languages. But this is really stupid in cases where the user has specified in the preferences only one language setting, like "DE to EN". Ignoring this the add-on still asks the user to click on "Translate to DE-EN" every time. If the uses specifies only one language pair, it would make sense for the add-on to provide instant translations without extra clicks.
On a Mac (I have no idea about PCs) the user can use the build in Dictionary function. With this the user can simply perform a single gesture, for example a three-finger-click (this can be customised to suit ones preferences), to bring up a translation for any word. Nothing extra is required. So at the moment that's the fastest and most user-friendly way to translate words on any web page.
I'm a big fan of using dict.cc, so I would love to see this add-on get better. But until this add-on achieves a similar ease of use to what OS X offers as a default, it simply isn't worth using if you're on a Mac.Thanks for your input.
First of all: You only need to pick the language if you use the context-menu.
You can instead use the "quick click" feature to translate with the top entry in your language list.
You can configure it to be activated using a key-combo + click.
Alternatively you can use a rocker gesture (tho I guess since macs only have one mouse-button, this is no option for you).
I don't think I have a way to check for gestures like 3 finger click.
Hope this helps.
- von Andreas Berger, vor 4 JahrenBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenThank you so much to taking the effort and bring this excellent add-on back to Firefox! I was beginning to miss it badly...
(Hopefully you'll get the pocket panel working as well... ;-)
- von frankiebluej, vor 4 JahrenBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenThis is an extremely helpful tool. I can look up a word quickly and efficiently and still be assured of accuracy since it comes from dict.cc.
I like this updated version quite a bit. (Even though the others worked well, too.)
