I've just made a short video to show you that S3.translator causes some "FOUC", on this webpage for instance : (don't forget to clear the cache with Ctrl+ F5 to see the problem)

Here is the video :'ecran/F ... lator.webm (you can read this with VLC for instance).
Here is a report about that bug :

Please note that when S3.translator is disabled, there is no FOUC.
Do you think you can fix that?
Thank you (and sorry to warn you about that bug again :mrgreen: )

another example of website (a forum) with this "FOUC" issue and S3.Translator :
If S3.translator is enabled, there is a FOUC (if the webpage is not in cache memory).
If not, there is no problem.
Can you reproduce it dear pag77 ? :-k
Thanks :wink:

edit : another webpage with this bug : ... -security/

For over a week every time I try to translate I keep getting:

S3.Translator cannot connect to

in translation field.
What might be the problem? Other extensions or s3 privileges?
How can I check it except disabling all other extensions?

I am using your latest version of S3.Translator and Firefox version 52.0 (64-bit)

I love your app, and use it quite often, but I need to disable it permanently on a certain site (domain). Every time I go to Google Voice ( your addon converts all my friends names into numbers and removes the avatar for my friend... I disabled ALL other addons during testing, and nothing resolved this except Disabling your addon. I do NOT want to disable your addon, but I DO want to disable it on that particular website, since it makes the entire site useless to me.

I have read all 36 pages here, and tried about 20 different settings configs, but nothing short of disabling the addon fixed it.

Is there something I am missing? Most apps let us whitelist/blacklist certain domains.

Hi Hello !
I'm writing to you in hopes that you will read my suggestion as I don't want to poorly review the chrome extension just for the sake of a feature suggestion, or rather feature fix/touch-up.

I often highlight text which I simply want to google or inspect or etc. which is just a right-click away. The 3 buttons which pop-up RIGHT NEXT TO the mouse are rather frustrating..

Please give us an option to offset the buttons popping up by a few px (pixels) away from the mouse. This should give us room to perform the right click without 'accidentally' right clicking the buttons and thus causes the highlight to be removed and I have to re-highlight everything all over again- usually just for this to get in my way a 2nd, 3rd, and maybe 4th or more time.... Really really really frustrating!!!

As a hobbyist programmer myself I may even look into how hard this is to implement myself... But in that case, no one would be able to benefit from it besides me and I believe this feature must be incorporated as soon as possible as I cannot be the only user suffering this issue


I have written this elsewhere just for the sake of being properly heard:

I use your extension on Firefox. It's a very useful extension to me, specially in this moments because I have moved to Denmark from Spain and I don't know Danish,
I have a question: is there any way to disable the notification when I copy text? It's very annoying for me.

Anyone notice a web browser tab briefly being opened by S3 every now and then, and then closed? This is even when I'm not trying to actively translate anything

I'm using the extension on Vivaldi browser 1.15. Translation works well but... "Always translate once translated" has no effect. I've tried using it on,, and others. Each time I go back to the webpage it does not automatically translate. Can you fix it?

When I use the extension to try to translate a page that contains multiple languages, it just quits with no feedback. It would be great if I could choose one of the languages to translate, but at least an error message would be helpful. And if one of the languages is the target language (English in my case), then I think it should translate the non-English text.

This is in Firefox 52 ESR, S3.Translator 6.16.

This addon looks great, but I can't get it to translate selected text in Firefox - it always says:

Error connecting to server
Try again.

I've tried it on 2 different computers and they both have the same issue.

> Error connecting to server
That's because of latest changes in Google Translate service.
New level of obscurity, nobody can hack it!
Let's wait.

@MattHermann, are you using Firefox on both computers? Translation works properly for me in Vivaldi (based on Chromium).
