Automatic Website Translation

more options

Now that Microsoft has moved to a Chrome based browser with the newest release of Edge, automatic, and fully functional website translations are now standard in both Edge and Chrome. I am a US Citizen, living in Mexico, that is not yet fully fluent in Spanish. This has severely limited my ability to use Firefox, which honestly, is a pretty big deal for me. I prefer Firefox for multiple reasons, but privacy is my major concern. Is Firefox working on a solution to this massive hole in Mozilla's browser product offering? Two major competitors are now offering automatic translation. What gives?

Both Edge and Chrome have integrated translation technology into their respective browsers. Regardless of the platform I use (app via Apple iOS or Windows on my Dell PC) both Chrome and Edge automatically translate every Spanish website I visit into English. This is not accomplished via an add-on. It's an integrated part of the browser experience. The only options I have with Firefox require a new page be opened (and even then, the majority of the links will not work) or I must highlight and select the text I want translated and right click, etc. I haven't found an add-on that integrates the experience and requires no action on my part.

So I'm guessing this is a no go at this point.
