The new translate addon is really cool. I would like to see a feature for translating a highlighted word or phrase.

Flow: highlight word/phrase > right click > select "Translate '<word/phrase>'"

I think the simplest way to do this would be to copy the highlighted text into the popup window of the extension.

Hi @Jeppie , I'm glad to know it worked for you. The two buttons have different purposes: the one labeled as "Firefox Translations" aims to open the translation interface bar in the page. The one labeled as "Text Translations" is used to open the free-form translation popup.

You can see a demo of how to use it here:

Unfortunately I don't have an answer for your other questions at this moment.
