Random firefox thing

Im not sure how this happened, but when I hover over a word in firefox, a little box pops up with translations...


Im sure its not part of an add-on, I only have the SEO one, Google toolbar and one that changes the cursor based on the type of link you hover on (new window, PDF etc)


its useful and I want it on my home pc! so I need to figure out what it actually is any ideas?

In IE 7 there's an option for a translator... it makes sense that they stole it from Firefox. ;-)

You didn't mention which version of FF you're using... ? That would make a difference. But I'm sure, if you look through your options, you'll find a way to turn it off and on.

version 2.0.0.14

I think it was from an add-on because I haven't updated recently, and it only happened recently

thanks for the help though

HOLD PRESS!!!

I figured out what it is! (and I feel a bit silly now )

it's the Google toolbar's translate function... Imagine that



I clicked it and now the translate thing is highlighted, whereas before it wasn't, hence the sudden influx of translations

thanks for all the help in unravelling this mystery btw

Aha! That explains it... and I even went to the darned FF site, looking for the info-- LOL! Figures... I knew I saw it somewhere!

And, really, you figured it out all by yourself, didn't you? But I understand... that kind of junk drives me crazy, too.

Well... I have to get to work...

hehe thanks, makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing how it works


and to LinkPopularity: it depends on the word, some aren't translated, some are translated into 1 or 2 languages, the most I've seen is 4

I'm guessing its spanish, french, german and something else?
