I have a problem with S3.Translator from the beginning. (I use Firefox Nightly on Windows)

1. Always shows this error:
"Error connecting to server
Try again."

2. There is a problem moving the «Translate text» flying window and it shakes sharply and I can only move it a little.

in a new and clean profile, there is only problem number 1.

Hardware acceleration is disabled but in the default profile, I have changed some settings for example fingerprinting is limited and WebRTC is disabled. Please guide me. Thanks.

My original Firefox version is: 85.0a1 (2020-11-30) (64-bit)
(i use Chameleon extension)

Wow, thank you! I did not realise that it had returned to – very glad to see positivity in the vast majority of reviews.

Now without an option to collect statistics (the 'Other' tab).

Would like to ask if there's a romanization setting?
If I remember correctly, there used to have romanization last time.
I tried searching through the settings, but to no avail. Might have miss out some settings though. Or has it been removed?

Ever since the last update a few weeks ago I'm having bad luck translating pdf files via the google translate web site.

Example: ... 1131-4.pdf

I used to click the S3 Toolbar icon (which I have set to "translate the page") and it would translate the page via the google translate web site. Now I get a "Can't translate this page" from Google.

If I download the pdf and upload it to google translate web site it translates it without error.

I've tried things like turning off other extensions that might be causing conflict and accepting cookies from to no avail.

I'm using the newly released Waterfox 3G on Mac OS Mojave. Maybe that's the update that broke it?

> Do you want to translate this secure HTTPS-page?

The wording could be more user-friendly.

Encourage awareness of reasons to not have HTTPS content, which might be private/confidential, translated by Google.

i hope this addon ( have an option/checkboxes to allow the user to translate the HTTPS page to prevent that popup appears. I think that will be nice.

Hi. The addon doesn't respect the "Never translate this site" option. Whenever I get back to the page, I get always the same prompt.

Confirmed, this does seem to be a bug.

Whilst the translation toolbar menu option is non-effective: you can use the S3.Translator button to cease automatic translation, for example:

When translating the full page, it opens the translated page in new window. And all i can do is read it. For instance, if there is a form in other language, and i translate it. the form will be translated but i can't enter any data in it. Is there any solution to it?
