Recovery method for version 6.19 for Firefox (“Error connecting to server https://translate.google.com Try again.“)


  • Step 1.
    if you already have version 6.19 installed - skip this step
    for others:
    Download and install the latest official signed version:
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/6cyd67ixup4y7s4/s3translator-6.19-fx_signed.xpi

  • Step 2.
    Download the latest (now it is 6.24) unsigned version:
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/8e45m9jhu5usruz/s3translator_6.24.xpi

  • Step 3.
    in the address bar of Firefox: about:debugging#addons
    Click on the button "Load temporary Add-on ..."
    choose the previously downloaded s3translator_6.24.xpi

  • Step 4.
    do any translation to make sure that it works

  • Step 5.
    restart firefox
    the temporary extension s3translator_6.24.xpi will automatically be removed from the browser and the previously installed s3translator-6.19-fx_signed.xpi will be restored

    BUT!!
    The new key for the google-translation API will be saved and you will be able to use version 6.19!
    in about a month, the key will become expired and you will need to repeat from step 3
