Doesn't seem to work here Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Been trying to use it on the version of Firefox that my employer bundled it into, but it does not seem to work from or to Japanese. I gave it more than the minimum star because the bottom option is a shortcut to the place where the language can be changed, but the suggested donation seems ridiculous, even if it did work properly.

Thank you Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Version 1.7.8.5 is the best one, multilingual search technique.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Used to like it, but the sneaky new adware added by the new developer is disconcerting.

Don't install the newer version! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It's a pitty for Firefox security, I had to confirm this extension contains now a bloatware! Somebody to fork so as to retrieve the past version ???

Oh, boy... Rated 2 out of 5 stars

First, note that other user has taken recently the ownership of this add-on, as the original developer, Captain Caveman, left the support and development for all his add-ons a few months ago. He offered his work to those interested.

And now we see the first related news. As Dillanski mentioned, be aware: the recent updates (since 1.7.8.5... but it's still harmless; 1.7.8.6+ are ugly) only adds a new option, *enabled by default*, for to integrate a "price comparison (WizeShoppy)". First time that I hear about it, but only by the source code added for its integration, I see that it works in a very intrusive way over all your web navigation, and, in general, I recommend stay away of things as this.

1.7.8.6 is still in a "waiting aproval by some AMO reviewer" state, so users (yet) didn't received this update.

Independently of the choices of the new developers for to monetize this add-on, not having a single mention of it in the release notes, is a fishy behaviour (EDIT 20/3: Now it's mentioned). And it seems that with other add-ons she(?) is doing the same.

Beware - it's sneaky AdWare!!!! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

If I could give Quick Locale Switcher ZERO stars I would. If you don't believe me that this add-on installs nasty ADWARE on to your computer just read their Privacy Policy. Click the link right beside the install button. They disclose the adware in the privacy policy. It's called WizeShoppy and it's nasty stuff. You've been warned.

As of 8/25/12, the developer announced he is looking for someone to adopt his add-ons, and will not be doing any upkeep. I found the announcement on the support site.

Resolved - Problem of continuous re-rendering Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent once again!

This rather strange problem was resolved by the simple expedient of setting QLS preference
"Reload the current ..... after switching" to No.
My thanks to author Martijn (Captain Caveman) for a prompt response.
I leave a partial record of the problem for archive:

vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv
Has been excellent.
However, a warning for those moving to FF 15.0 : I have experienced some truly bizarre behaviour, where pages (like gmail.com & yandex.ru & even the AMO) keep cyclically re-rendering & re-rendering, sometimes blank, sometimes without CSS, and won't be stopped.
== SOLUTION: if the AMO (Add-ons Mozilla) page quiets down enough,
== change the QLS preference "Reload the current ..... after switching" to No.

All of which seemed to be related to QLS, so I removed it, which left all the main FF interfaces speaking Russian at me.
== The change to Русский язык remains mystery, but may well not be related to QLS.
== The solution is to go FFox Edit> Prefs > Content > Languages > Choose >
== highlight your preferred lingo & [Move up] to top language.

I love this addon. I downloaded ff in my own language, but found it hard to google for something in the menu (didnt know the labels in english). Also great for testing sites.
One little feature request tho, can u make it autoupdate the installed language packs after a ff update? even if only for security/minor updates, would be cool if i didnt have to install them manually
