Hi,
Thanks for this wonderful addon, I greatly appreciate your work.
I'm using nightly, I was wondering when web-extension version is going to be released, or if there is any testing/beta branch?

I'm already doing an addon for WebExtensions
I think that in 2-3 weeks the first release will be made

Update proposal:

"Hide <<google-panel>> from translated page"

Should be in the toolbar icon, preferably "above" "Options",
& be called: Hide <<google-panel>>

To avoid having a larger toolbar icon pannel..

In case some websites have their menu "hidden" by the "google translate bar",
so people don't have to go to options & modify it for one site, apply & then return to options again..

Cause the google bar is still needed to modify languages on the fly.

It should affect the active page's domain only, & a list in options could be created for some sites that need the toolbar hidden..
& a new string is created per sites:

When i click on: ✓ Hide <<google-panel>>
One more time, it will forget the hiding for the active domain..


Ps: This is unneeded:

"Forget the translation of this site"

in the toolbar button panel.. because, clicking on the checked:
✓ Automatically translate blahblah
Forgets the auto translation for the active domain, already..

Hi,

How the progress with FF57 compatible version is going? I am using the addon a lot at work and I wonder whether 'new' version will be available before the release of Firefox 57? This would let me to consider sticking with FF 52 Extended Support Release for a while, before stable add-on revision will be released for new extension engine.

I've tried to browse around if you released any early version for testing, but failed to find it. Is there any? :)

Thank you so much, I was using another translator add-on on Firefox 57 pending this being released. Yours is by far the best

Hi love the addon. Thank you for updating to WebExtensions. Wondering if you can look into why you have to long press the middle click for the flying window to show. Doing a normal middle click does nothing. Only pressing for about 1 second, does the window show. Not a big deal, just a minor inconvenience.

Thanks,

Before all, thank you very much for excellent addon, appreciate your work.

Few questions/suggestions:
- Is it possible to make automatically closing flying windows when redirected to another tab (for example, going to Google Translate page from translation (flying) window)? I think that this would be very useful.
- It it possible to make permanent setting for source language, i.e. not using "detect language" every time? Tried this from flying window, but addon does not remember setting.
- Would be very thankful if you can please add option to automatically open flying window on text/word selection and translate the content (I think that this is a minor effort, but can be useful to many users except me).

Anyway, great work, thank you very, very much.

would be nice to have the drawing tool for kanjis and other characters and It would be great although i dont know if possible to be able to press a button that enables to use the keyboard to type characters in other languages without needing to change the configuration of your operative system.
