If you’re a heavy user of Gmail and tabs in Firefox, you have certainly noticed that when you switch to the Gmail tab in your browser, Gmail shortcut keys do not work, unless you focus the page (via clicking on it, tabbing through it, etc.) Edward Lee has put together a very useful Greasemonkey script, which is a definite must-have. Go ahead and install it right now, and no more extra Tabs/clicks!
One of the projects that had kept me busy for the past few days was the translation of addons.mozilla.org into Persian. The work is nearly done now, and is available for testing. If you’re an Iranian user or can speak Persian, please take a look around, and let me know if you find any mistakes, or can suggest any imporvements. You can also view the progress of the translation here, and keep an eye on the fixes I make in the translation here.
Here is how the current translation looks like:
As you may notice, there are some problems in the layout of the site in right-to-left more as well. I’ve been reporting them as I notice them, and fixed a few of them myself as well. This will help the Hebrew and Arabic localizations as well.
Last, but not least, I would like to thank Alexandru Szasz for his wonderful work on Narro, which helped me in doing the translation. Narro is a very useful and easy-to-use tool, and Alexandru is quite willing and responsive in fixing any glitches in his code. In fact it’s so easy to use that you can start translating in your own language right now!
