Not working with Firefox 28 on Windows 8.1 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

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.

I appreciate your 7 paragraph bug report. Just so you are aware, July 24th was not over a year ago. I myself am currently using this addon in Firefox 28 with no issues, as you provided no other information I'm not quite sure how to help you.

If you could provide additional information via the Github issues page (, that would be great.

Doesn't work at all! Thumbs down for it.

I'd appreciate feedback

How does it not work? Feel free to submit a bug report on the Github repo.

I like very much this addon and I am using it everyday, Because When I want to translate one word or a paragraph from a website, I can "right click" the word I want, and I select "Translate This! - selection". Immediately it takes me to Google translate. Very convenient to me! Thank you. I highly recommend this one :-)

Useful tool, but...
1. The add-on bar icon always re-adds itself and re-activates the add-on bar. This is intrusive and unnecessary.
2. The icon does not work when added to a toolbar folder in the Firefox menu via Personal Menu.

Unfortunately, for these reasons, I will be uninstalling. If they were to be fixed, this would be an excellent add-on.

Works as described, but I don't usually need the whole page to be translated, and the "select - right-click - click" thing is way too long-winded.
I really loved to have sth like that Opera-Plugin; select the word, click on the translate symbol/hit shortcut and the translation-bubble appears in the edge...

Worked great and without any ergonomic issues.

I installed this for the first time today. I have a (removable) icon on the Add-on Bar, and the configurable hotkey works fine. But I don't have any entry in the context menu if I select text or mouse-over a link. Help please. These features (particularly select text) are critical for me. FF28.0b2

if i use keyboard short cut i get only: "invalid url entered. the page to be translated can not be a local file or https"i think is because https everywhere, would be nice to add https function

Shortcut Rated 1 out of 5 stars

For choosing a shortcut key you KNEW was so close Ctrl+t, Shift+T, Alt+T you are a cold hearted bastard and I hope you choke.

My keyboard is busted and it took me 10 min to type this. I hope for months you get a message without an X over your bank transactions, you Control key stealing b*stard.

You can change the keyboard shortcut if you feel that Ctrl+Alt+T doesn't cut it.

Great because there is option to open in new tab Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Unlike some other Google translation addons this one has a setting to "Open translations in new tab". I do not like covering up the page I am trying to translate.

The "About this Add-on" info needs to be updated to indicate that "no restart" is only for initiating translation via the context menu. To get the translation button to work one has to restart Firefox. Then the translation button works.

After removing the icon from addons panel, after restart it appears again. Fix it, please. I dont need an icon.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a nice slim translation add-on that gets the job done. However, there are a few minor issues i that I hope will be addressed:

1)When you move the button from its default location, it will cease to function until you reset firefox or disable/re-enable it.
2) Upon browser load, the button ignores spaces and seperators placed to its right. It will jump to the right of those spaces until its next to another button.
3)The popup notifications appear in a static spot above the add-on bar even when the button is moved to the navigation toolbar. Would be nice if the pop-up notification were displayed relative to the button's location.

is good, no restart, light,..but misses hotkey for translating selection only not the whole page. please developers provide this as well. thank you. also I have to point out like others did already the annoyance of opening a new tab and not a small popup

Meh... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Does what it says and nothing more...

Buy why does it - like (nearly) any other Google translation add-on - open a whole new tab or overriding the current, if I just want to translate a small paragraph, sentence or even a single word? That's annoying!

It should open a small pop-up and behave like QGTranslate.

Unfortunately the app button doesn't do a thing. You can LMB or RMB click it and absolutely nothing happens.I would love to see the option to choose where this addon appear. I only need the button for translating pages. I don't want to see entries in menu. I got it cluttered enough already.
Better yet, you could create light version with just a button redirecting to translated page. I would love to see that :)
For the "on-the-site" translation i use www.Translate which uses 3 different engines to translate input sentences. Or you could try HyperTranslate.

EDIT: it works now. Maby it was some error, or browser needed a restart.

Is a new version 3.0 and works ok on FF 22

v2.0.2 works with FF22 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I discovered that there is a new version 2.0.2 which works with FF22 but it's not easy to get. You have to get it from the versions list at It's tricky because the option to download or add it to FF is hidden until you hover the mouse pointer over a particular spot on the screen (near the top/middle of that box).

Opera has translation options built in. It's my favourite browser, so whenever I add functionality to Firefox, it's to make it work as well as Opera does.

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I give it 5 stars, I just highlight click, page opens & sicut magicae (Latin for "just like magic") it's translated for me. Thank you for finding a way to bring Google Translate to the tip of our fingertips with just a simple mouse click or two.
