This question was already posted and badly answered in 2016. Now things have changed a lot and Firefox DO try to translate everything which is quite annoying to anyone knowing more than a single language. No extensions related. I need to completely disable that. My firefox is up to date: 118.0.1 (64-bit).

Thank you Arturo

I would - additionally - like to get rid of that translation icon in the urlbar. I don't want to see that feature on my main interface at all.

If there's no setting for it, i would appreciate an userChrome.css setting.

I have just seen this popup for the very first time today (23/01/2024), and I absolutely hate it. I hope you will add a checkbox to completely disable this feature in the future.

But for the time being, I will just toggle the browser.translations.automaticallyPopup option like suggested

Along with the following: browser.translations.enable browser.translations.panelShown

To achieve the behavior that I/we want.

(TBH, I think unnecessary features like this should be downgraded to extensions instead)
