Translation is far away from perfect
We are trying our best to make it perfect, and you can help us by contributing.

No upgrading option
We strongly recommend you to use a fresh build of Mantra Lexicon and not to upgrade Firefox base from previous versions. Many of the extensions available today are not compatible with latest versions of Firefox. Apart from that, using them as it is will result in a very cluttered menus since they make their entries into toolbar, context menus and status bar. We have applied some minor changes to those extensions to fix these issues. Upgrading those extensions automatically might break some functionality so we strongly recommend you to keep automatic updates turned off.
