It's a great thing to have when it works like it's supposed to. Unfortunately it has a habit of spontaneously, inexplicably switching the target language to Estonian, despite my repeated attempts to set it to English.
This addon is one of the things that makes Firefox worthwhile. It might even help prevent eye trouble in the long run, if you spend a lot of time reading online. The simple activation/deactivation works great. Just a couple suggestions for future improvement: as someone else noted, a lot of non-text symbols don't show up with the addon activated, which makes it a little inconvenient at times. Also, it would be nice to change the colors on one tab while leaving a different tab unchanged. But all things considered it's a great addon that does what it's supposed to do.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.7).
I installed this because of the option to use Bing Translator, which pops up with a translation right by the text, as opposed to Google and others that open a whole new tab to view a translation. This is much more convenient if you only need to translate a word here and there. The highlighting and other stuff is an added bonus, and it's been working fine (I had no trouble using the backspace key with selected text).
One minor suggestion: sometimes the popup menu gets in the way of the text that I just selected which is a little annoying; it you could somehow configure it to appear completely above the text that would make it even better. But otherwise I'm completely happy with it.
