yeah I tried that but I dont like it, it's too bloated. I was looking for simple addon which would just send selection or page to google translate.

Code for bookmarklet (any language to English) :

javascript:var%20t=((window.getSelection&&window.getSelection())||(document.getSelection&&document.getSelection())||(document.selection&&document.selection.createRange&&document.selection.createRange().text));var%20e=(document.charset||document.characterSet);if(t!=''){location.href='http://translate.google.com/?text='+t+' ... b=1&ie='+e;};

or maybe Translate button from here :

https://codefisher.org/toolbar_button/t ... ton_maker/

I don't know if Translate button is working with Pale Moon 27.

Oh if you just want to send text directly to Google Translate, there's a very simple way to do that. It's actually what I've been doing before I started using S3 Google Translator.

1. Add Google Translate to the list of Pale Moon search engines if you haven't already.
Simply go to the Google Translate site, and then expand the Pale Moon search engine drop-down menu and select "Add Google Translate".

2. Install the Easy DragToGo++ add-on:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... plus-plus/

3. Configure the Easy DragToGo options so that text will be sent to Google Translate.
Example: With my previous settings, dragging selected text a bit downwards would've sent the selection to Google Translate:

That's it!

Strange that an ISP would block Mediafire. I've attached the latest .xpi so give it a try.

Thanks for the tip, HaleSun. I'd given up on a replacement for it in 27.0.0b* series.

Just saw this and it works great. One of the positives about v27 is that I had to look for and discovered newer variations of some add-ons that had been discontinued. Many thanks.

Another option is Google Translator for Firefox. It's very straightforward (selection, full page) and works fine with PM 27.

Thanks for the tip, I added the search engine and then just used Context Search X to put it in context menu.

Although it seems that theres a limit to the amount of text to send. It cuts off if its too long selection.


So I am still looking

Do you know of a way to put that bookmarklet into context menu?

I see you're also a user of Context Search X. Have you tried changing the max selection length?

In Context Search X options, go to "Other Options" > "Edit Max Selection Length..."

Although if your selection is really that long it might be better to just translate the whole page. As suggested by coffeebreak, the addon "Google Translator for Firefox" will add a "translate page" option to the context menu.

I prefer FlashGot, but that doesn't work either. Give Video Downloader Professional a try: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... rofession/
I don't have any complaints so far except the icon won't stay in the statusbar I've had to move it next to the search box.

I've had good luck with 1-Click YouTube Video Downloader although I think it only works on YouTube.

Try this one too:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... downloade/

or install DevTools:

https://addons.palemoon.org/extensions/devtools/

intercept video URLs in its "net" tab and paste them into a real download manager that has multiple connections.

Magic Actions seems to have stopped working a while ago for Pale Moon, only I didn't notice because the part that broke was the ability to change the settings. I ditched it and went to PM 27 now that RES works, but man I miss being able to change youtube volume by scrolling with the cursor over the video.

I highly recommend the userscript "YouTube+": https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/9932-youtube
By far my favorite YT enhancer.

There is the option to change volume by scrollwheel (disabled by default).

Thank you so much! This is nicer than Magic Actions in a lot of ways anyways. These big PM updates are always rough at first, but they really get you to reevaluate your browswer, which can be nice.
