Firefox integration

Firefox doesn't allow use of the scanning mode (translation on the fly) directly.
It is due its multiplatform architecture (it also works on Windows and Linux): Firefox for Mac OS X is mostly written in Carbon, which is why it doesn't implement the API needed for capturing text under the mouse pointer. Even the Services available in all Cocoa applications are limited in Firefox.

To let Firefox users enjoy all capabilities of TranslateIt!, we developed a Firefox extension that allows looking up the meanings of selected words in a pop-up window invoked from the contextual menu.

This extension is compatible with TranslateIt! 9.9 (build 9904) and higher.

To install this extension:
  1. Launch Firefox.
  2. Open this page.
  3. Click the button bellow to install the XPI-extension.
    If, during the installation process, you see the following notification:
    You should allow the installation.
    Our extension doesn't contain any SpyWare, and it is absolutely harmless.

    If the installation fails, please, download the extension (right-click, and choose Save as...), and install it manually by opening it in Firefox.
  4. Restart Firefox to activate the extension.
  5. Open any web page.
  6. Now select a word on that page, press the right mouse button, and select Look Up in TranslateIt! from the contextual menu.
    If you don't see the translation at this time, Firefox will prompt you to choose an application to use for this command (see below), otherwise the extension setup process is successfully finished.
  7. We're almost done. There is only one little trick left: To communicate with TranslateIt!, the extension uses its own protocol called x-tidaemon, which is assigned to TranslateIt!. When first translating using Firefox, you should choose an application to handle this protocol:
    Check the box at the bottom that says: Remember my choice for x-tidaemon links, for Firefox to save your choice, and then click Choose...
    A standard open file dialog will open.

    You need choose the support program: Launch TranslateIt!, hold down the Command key (the Apple key on old keyboards), and click the TranslateIt! icon in the Dock. Finder will reveal the TranslateIt! application. Right-click TranslateIt!.app and choose Show Package Contents. Navigate to Contents/Resources/, and find the file called TIDaemon:
    Drag TIDaemon from the Finder window, and drop it onto the open dialog - the program will be automatically selected in this dialog.
    Confirm you choice by pressing OK in the Launch Application dialog.

    If everything was done correctly, you should see the translation of the selected word in a pop-up window.
    If something goes wrong, you can re-link the x-tidaemon protocol to TIDaemon in the Firefox preferences (Applications tab), or the Extensions tab in Tools > Add-ons.
