Google, Bing... is not sure

Used to work decently; now I'm running the latest version of Firefox and clicking the Translate Now icon in my toolbar does nothing. No menus or pages with choices come up, nor can I see anything to do with it when I right/ctrl-click on a page. I've reported it as non-functional to Mozilla. Please pay attention to/fix your add-on.
