gTranslate stopped working in 25.02 x86_64

Post by majest » 2014-11-09, 17:21

Hi - I just noticed that the gTranslate addon for firefox has stopped working after I upgraded to palemoon 25.02. I'm on linux amd64 / x86_64. Normally this addon lets you rightclick on a word to get the translation (e.g. from French into English).

Yes
http://forum.palemoon.org/search.php?ke ... gTranslate
but it would be an easy one to fix. Last version is of 2011, so I guess asking the dev makes not much sense. Sole reason is chrome.manifest containing Firefox GUID, replacing that one with Pale Moons fixes the issue.

Alternatively, you might want to have a look at
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... ranslator/
it's a little more "heavy" but pretty handy and it supports Pale Moon.

Ah I see.

Is there a way to "fix" the GUID in gTranslate on my own? I am looking at the Help -> Troubleshooting Information -> Profile Directory folder itching to copy and paste {8de7fcbb-c55c-4fbe-bfc5-fc555c87dbc4} somewhere! Just tell me where ;)

Moving this to the extension compatibility board.

Shoot, I'm going to have to go back to FF until this is working. Sorry guys - I'll check in frequently - go Palemoon!

Go with PM-specific Quick Translator: https://addons.palemoon.org/extensions/ ... ranslator/

Shag. The fix PM'd to me didn't work.. and Quick Translate is not a satisfactory replacement - it lacks the right click popup. :cry: Rock and hard place, fuck the FF crew for bringing this on us.

I have a fixed version which I've been using since PaleMoon 25 came out. You just need to take the basic GUID fixing steps with this add-on.

I posted a download link before on the forums but it was taken down. PM me if interested.
