Got the update through FireFox. :)
Now if only it would keep a copy of the .XPI and install it. Lol.

I found a slight problem Paul.
Your Translate extension uses the default drop down icon of the respective theme. Which is cool but.
I'm using a theme right now that doesn't utilize that dropdown arrow icon. And so it's not working appropriately since the arrow is missing. It's a theme choice but I think you can make your own arrow to avoid that kind of issue naturally.

Which theme are you using?

Is there any reason why it's in french? In the screenshot it's clearly in english, but when I downloaded I got french.

Um...Your extension will not change languages from french in 1.0PR.
