New in Firefox 118

Automatic language translation

Although many modern web browsers already have this feature, Firefox is incorporating it just now. Now, Firefox has a built-in translator that will translate web pages from one language into another natively.

It will automatically detect your default language and check if a web page is in the same language or not. If it isn’t, it will pop up a translation window like the one in the image below. From there, simply confirm the languages and click Translate.

Once you click the Translate button, the web page will reload into your preferred language.

Other features and improvements

Some other improvements and inclusions have also been made to Firefox 118:

  • Web Audio in Firefox now uses the FDLIBM math library on all systems to improve anonymity with Fingerprint Protection.
  • The visibility of fonts to websites has been restricted to system fonts and language pack fonts to mitigate font fingerprinting in Private Browsing windows.
  • Video Effects and background blur are now available to Firefox users on Google Meet.
  • Firefox Suggest users (US-only at this time) will now be able to see browser add-on suggestions right in the address bar based on their keywords.
