NOT REALLY A CONNECTION ERROR Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have found that the "connection error" goes away if I make sure I remove all trailing whitespace from the Original Text box. That is probably a minor bug in the extension that does not check for this and results in it falling through to an error handler that is normally invoked when there really is a connection error.
This is still the best translation extension I know.
Runs fine... at this time Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I've been using 'Fast Translation' for years, my preferred translation Firefox add-on, simple, fast, not bloated. Then problems started, the add-on was updated, problems again (connection to Google) which led me to remove, re-install, remove the add-on accordingly.
True love I guess when you always come back : I missed 'Fast Translation' after having removed it again for the same reasons mentioned here by other users, so I decided to give it a try again (same version 1.11.5) and right now all is fine, which makes me think it's only occasionally a connection problem to Google servers, for a reason I ignore ...
Anyway, happy to be able to use it again. Hope it lasts.

Again Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Too much, again and again, near every time that I open the translator window I receive a lil connection error message. Dear friend, if do not want receive negative reviews please just give us a better way for feedback, github would be great for the issues and feedback, but it's up to you.
I'm love with this addon for so much time, that I can't bear part with it, but it's hard to endure.

Nice, simple and efficient. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Nice addon, I was desperately searching for an addon as this wich add a very simple and fast translation function to my browsing. Minimalist and powerful. Good job!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.11.3).
good Rated 4 out of 5 stars
One of a few translators which use Babylon dictionaries, not that cutdown version of Google translate. The only thing I miss is the translation in the pop-up box.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.11.3).
The best out of a bad lot Rated 4 out of 5 stars
The sad fact is translators are a terrible lot. The whole category stinks. This is the best one if you stick with version 1.11- and even that is screwy. They have 2 versions listed on here and only one will download- typical Mozilla.
Stick with that version and swap Failfox for Palemoon- a vastly superior browser that maintains the spirit of what FF was years ago before Mozilla decided to run it into the ground.
I've uploaded new version - 1.11.3, it works in Pale Moon
Doesn't work anymore Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Toolbar button doesn't work anymore in Pale Moon (version 1.11.2).
Version 1.11 is working fine.
Version 1.11.3 is working fine. Thanks.
Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Generally a very useful and sleek add-on, when it works. But it occurs quite often that the context menu entry "Translate (auto - en)" after marking a word opens a Google Translator error page in the same tab that says "Sorry, this URL is invalid http://null/" which renders it completely useless.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.10.5).
Great add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thanks for creating this addon - it's one of the ones I use most. Just one thing - the CTRL+SHIFT+L shortcut doesn't work on OS X, although it works fine on Ubuntu (using Firefox 40.0.3 on both platforms). Do you know how to fix this?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (184.108.40.206-signed).
A very nice add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It is very helpful and extremely comfortable to use. Thanks!
To my mind only in one detail the add-on should be improved: As mentioned by other posters too, the font-size in the pop-up window is very small.
Text output is too tiny to me.. Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I like this plugin as it works in TWO clicks only (after selecting text). But the settings of it could have also an output text font-size adjustments, as for me is too tiny so it is hard to read. As an option, I'd suggest to output translated text only (the original text by default could be (toggle) hidden), so this will make interface more spacious, so bigger font-size will fit in there...This review is for a previous version of the add-on (220.127.116.11-signed).
