In the (now closed) thread:

It recommends: "Go into the options and untick the double click to translate box" for "Google Dictionary and Translate 2.5 add-on"

... but does not explain how to get to the options. I am not sure, in fact, that this is the solution.

I have "Easy Google Translate (3.1)" ... but this is already disabled. I don't see any other Google Translate add-on installed at this time, per: "about:addons" ... I also searched "about:config" for "Translate" and didn't find Google Translate their either.

am I looking in the right place, or is there another solution?

Hope someone knows the answer...

Thanks in advance.

hello Enquire, yes about:addons is the right place to look for it. please note that it might also be another extension of yours that contains this kind of adware. please also try disabling all your other presently active extensions (a restart might be necessary after each of them) to find the culprit...
