Starting with version 118 of the Mozilla Firefox web browser is coming with automatic translation of the webpages. As soon as you visit a website that is not in your local language, Firefox shows the translation options for that website. We can also make it automatically translate the sites into your local language. This Firefox feature supports many languages such as Bulgarian, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, and Spanish.
But some people do not like this language translation popup coming up every time we visit a new website. For those people, we present very simple instructions to disable the website translation. The process requires just two basic steps.
Here is how we can disable website translations in the Firefox web browser:
- Launch Mozilla Firefox web browser and ensure it is version 118 or above. You can download the latest Firefox web browser from getfirefox.com.
- In the address bar of the Firefox browser, type about:config and press Enter. This will open the advanced settings screen.
- In the search box, type browser.translations.enable to find the setting we want.
- Double-click on the setting browser.translations.enable and change its value to false.
- Close the advanced setting tab.
If at a later stage, you wish to make the website translations enable once again, then you can repeat the same steps once again. But this time, you have to change the value of the setting browser.translations.enable to true. The user interface in Firefox advanced setting also allows to reset this setting’s value to its default value. We can reset its value back to the default value which is “true”.
There are many benefits of getting the webpages translated in Firefox without depending on the other common online services such as Bing Translate. It also helps the Firefox users who have been missing the Google Translate feature that comes built in the popular Chrome web browser.
