Does anyone know a plug in that replaces Peraperakun, which is incompatible with Firefox 4.

I had this problem too. Bummer eh?

At the moment I am using a plugin called Words-Chinese Pinyin Dictionary by Jason Huang.

It's downsides are that it only displays simplified characters (but it can read traditional) and also uses google translate (i think) to return it's results.

On the upside, it works in both directions and has a nice layout. You can highlight english text and it will return the Chinese. Another nice feature is that because you need to highlight text before it translates, you can use it on full sentences. 

Overall I still prefer peraperakun at the moment just for it's traditional support.

I also found Words-Chinese, so far the best choice. The translations are terrible, but at least it gives you the word by word in pinyin and english。
