Added localizations: Slovenian.

Version 70.3 KiB Works with Firefox 3.5 - 27.*

This is a temporary release which solves the problems of recent days. Unfortunately I had to reset the add-on to use GET method to request translation from Google, which means to you, that you can select-and-translate only 1100 characters instead of 38000... like old times :((

I am working on the problem, but I wanted to release an at least working version to you whatever it costed.

Every other features remained.

Other changes:
Based on a suggestion by the validator of the code, "Google Translator..." item has been removed from the Tools menu.

New functions:

Other changes:
- In Firefox 4 and upwards, you can no longer use the hide status-bar icon function, as in these versions, the toolbar icon is in use. If you don't want to see the icon, go to View > Toolbars > Customize... menu, and drag-and-drop the icon into the popped up window.
