Directly Translate Web Pages in Firefox

Firefox is a popular open-source web browser developed by Mozilla and its community of contributors. Known for its commitment to user privacy, customization options, and security features, Firefox has earned a reputation as a reliable and versatile browser. With a focus on transparency and community collaboration, it offers users a high level of customization through extensions and themes.

Besides many other useful features, there is also the Translate feature in Firefox to directly translate web pages without any third-party tools. This is a Beta feature but works well.

Here is how to use it:
