Are you a regular user of our Chinese and/or Japanese plugins? Do you wish to see them continue to be updated into the future?
We get daily emails and messages from people requesting improvements and bug fixes. This is great and we are happy that many people still value our plugins. Unfortunately, we can’t continue development work without your support.
Without boring you with the details, we have hired freelancers for the last couple of updates. One way or another, development comes at a cost.

Podcasts can be a fantastic way of rapidly expanding your familiarity with a language. For Japanese, there is a multitude of resources available. In this post, I am going to list up the best Japanese podcasts that I have come across.

The more I study and reflect on my language studies, I have semi-regular realizations about myself and how things work. The most recent is a simple one: A lot of this language learning stuff is as much about what not to do, as what you actually do.

We have released an update of Perapera Chinese for Firefox 44.
- Color schemes are back
- The plugin now automatically starts in each tab when “Always enable at startup” option is selected
You can download the latest version of the Chinese plugin below:
Learn in Your Car is a cool series that I’ve been meaning to do a review of for a while. There’s no time for that tonight (I just finished work and it’s almost 3am). However, the other day I noticed that the complete Learn in Your Car audio courses for both Chinese and Japanese are currently available for free with a 30 day Audible trial.
Over 10 hours of quality audio for nothing. That’s a pretty good deal if I ever saw one.
You can download the Learn in Your Car programs from below:
Learn in Your Car Japanese
Learn in Your Car Chinese
And yes, we are still working on the next plugin updates…watch this space!
We have released the “signed” updates for Firefox 43.
You can download them from the links below:
P.S We know there are still bugs that need to be resolved. We are now working on another release for the coming weeks. Please let us know about any new bugs that you encounter.
Yes, it’s that time of year again. And I’m not talking about Christmas. Firefox just brought out yet another update which means that the plugins aren’t working again.
We are going to address the issue with Mozilla, but here is a quick fix for now (Thanks Andy!).
“If you feel that you trust all your FF extensions, then you can try the following (AT YOUR OWN RISK) in order to force Perapera to be enabled again.
Go to about:config and enter this in search:
Double-click the value to toggle it to false.
Restart the browser.”
This should get things working again while we get the plugin signed and fix some other problems.
Thanks as always for your support!
It’s been a long wait for approval by Mozilla, but we got there in the end. The Chinese and Japanese plugins are finally available for Firefox 41!
Download them now from the links below:
We have already fixed the previous issues with the latest Firefox update, but Mozilla still hasn’t verified them for Mozilla 40. It’s frustrating, but there’s not much we can do.
In the meantime, you can download the (unverified) updates at the following links:
We are aware of a problem with our plugins in Firefox 40. Currently working on a fix for this. Please bear with us!
We hope to resolve this problem in the near future. In the meantime, you can either downgrade to Firefox 39 or use our Perapera Chinese Chrome add-on. Thank you for your support as always.
