Version 0.6.2b1 67.6 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 - 4.0b6

Bug fixes.
Made the dialogue that appears after clicking "Add Phrase" optional.

Version 0.6.1 67.6 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 - 4.0b6

Changes made since version 0.55:
-Notifications that don't require user interaction are now less-obtrusive, if your operating system supports it (Windows does, Mac OS X requires installing Growl, and haven't checked about Linux).
-Now when you left click the status bar icon to temporarily disable translations, all the modifications ming-a-ling made to the page will quickly be reverted - no refresh required. The opposite happens if you click the status bar icon again to re-enable translations. If you use the "Translate more/less frequently" option, or you change the source or target language, you'll see similar behavior. These improvements were made because Mozilla's statistics page for ming-a-ling shows a surprisingly large number of users have disabled ming-a-ling through firefox's built-in extension-disabling feature.

Version 0.6b3 67.6 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 - 4.0b6

Fixed bug that made translations not refresh correctly after changing the source or target languages.
