Thanks for the link :) .

----------------------------------------

What does "ancillary" mean in Spanish? With this add-on you only have to mark it with the mouse and click on a small icon. What do we have to do now to do this? Is it the same for a paragraph or a web page?

I sometimes see that banners of any site show products that I have visited. It might be annoying but we're grown-up people. We have free access to a lot of free content that for sure isn't free in costs and salaries. I hope "ancilliary" means something really serious, otherwise this is a cacicada :( .

You are so right!
I'm also missing such an add-on so badly.

Sadly this isn't the case with Thunderbird...

S3.Translator from Chrome Web Store – for Mozilla Firefox, Waterfox Classic and Waterfox Current

If your version of Firefox can use non-signed extensions, then your Firefox can use S3.Translator 6.25 from Chrome Web Store.

Recipe: https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/s3-tran ... ahamperrin

With Thunderbird

As far as I can tell, converted version 6.25 can do no more than open https://translate.google.com/ in a new tab.

I tried converting a legacy version. As expected, conversion did not succeed.

As I say, there isn't a problem with Firefox for me as there are many alternatives to S3. What I need is a working extension for Thunderbird as there are NO translation extensions for Thunderbird 68+ at all.

There's the yellow alert (warning) for extensions that are not recommended (not monitored) by Mozilla.

Sometimes when the most recent version of an extension is removed, AMO will continue to serve an inferior (lower) version. This seemed to happen, recently, for a Mozilla-recommended extension. This can happen without warning, maybe when Mozilla is reaching out to the developer.

And so on.

… they check all the time which addons we use.


They don't. The vast majority of extensions are not monitored.

Bizarrely, for a Mozilla-oriented forum, this forum refuses to seek the word Thunderbird :x so I can't easily tell what responses you gained in the past.

From search.php?author_id=16540&sr=posts I guess that essentially, you'd like something to translate selected text.

If not something that pops up in the current tab, then would you be happy with something that uses a separate tab (or window) for translation?

The way that S3 used to work, opening a panel at the bottom of the email window with the translation, was nice (I have emails open in separate windows, not in a pane in the main TB window). But I'd be happy with a translation of selected text to open in another tab. An option to translate the entire email too would be nice, but not absolutely necessary. Basically anything would be good as compared with the current nothing at all.

SO BAD!!!

THIS HAS BEEN THE BEST Translator Plugin hands down in terms of ease of use and responsiveness and reliability for work that I don't need much other visits to dictionary websites.

Thanks. Enquiries have begun.

Please subscribe to Tunderbird translator - Thunderbird / Add-ons - Mozilla Discourse – if a solution is found, I'll post there.

The block of this particular extension is inconvenient, but installation of version 6.25 is not too difficult. Please see above, I added a five-minute silent video tutrial.

Hello!
A lot of time passed...
Someone posted on network "S3.Translator-Clone", and the moderators threw both (the clone and the original) into the blocklist.
Image

In order to avoid using the name “S3.Translator” for fraudulent purposes and distributing all kinds of malware under its guise, it will be like this:
I will sign all new versions in Mozilla and post updates through my website https://www.s3blog.org/s3gt.html
It will be automatically updated versions.
This means that once installing the extension from my site, it will automatically be updated when new versions are released.

So:
Original version for Firefox: This is a signed extension that will be automatically updated.
1. Download it: https://s3blog.org/download/s3gt/s3translator_firefox.xpi
2. Install s3translator_firefox.xpi


PS:
To transfer settings from the old version(blocklist) to the new one(s3translator_firefox.xpi), you can do this:
type in address bar: about: config
search: extensions.blocklist.enabled
set: false

after that, a blocked version of the extension will be available in your browser.

save the settings to a file: S3.Translator - Settings - Save Settings

enable blocklist again: extensions.blocklist.enabled = true

load the settings into the new S3.Translator: Settings - Load Settings

well, obviously that one was. i got the notification while firefox was open, and it was running for more than 5 days at that time.
