For the last couple of years I have been using Google Translate via
my right-click context menu in Firefox
(mark a word > right-click > Search marked word in Google Translate > word translated into Danish) almost every day. It used to be so well working that I didn't bother to install any of my copies of WebWord or Babylon. Google Translate was fast & easy to use.
But that has changed!
403. That’s an error.
Your client does not have permission to get URL / from this server. (Client IP address: 2.1(xx.xxx.xx)6)
Why is (was!) Google Translate suddenly greeting me "Error 403 (Forbidden)" ?
That’s all we know.
of course that's not
"all we know"! But for the last couple of weeks it sure is all they have told me.
I don't understand it. I am not aware that anything relevant has changed in my Firefox 47. However, they list my proper IP address (without x
es), so maybe it has to do with me
as a person? I never log in to my Google account. Is that it? have Google upgraded the hard-playing ball?
If I arrive Google Translate any "normal" way, there is no problem.
