    For data backup, do you mean OneDrive or File History?

    For system backup, do you mean Windows Backup or another built-in tool?
    OneDrive - On Demand but most of the time I just do a full WIndows Backup but I was quite partial to Comodo Time Machine when it was an ongoing project. I'm open to free recommendations if anyone has one.

    P.S. Been using NoScript intermittently with Firefox lately.

    Doing a CIS fresh install later, just been playing around tweaking a load of CIS stuff and decided to revert back to default or CS settings. Still using FF though I miss the page translation of Chrome and the Firefox addon can be tedious as you have to select what to translate. Using laptop mainly for gaming and browsing.

    Lots of configuration options, CS settings works ok, comodofix and imaude's configurations are intriguing as well but staying with CS. Firefox is fine but feels slow and laggy at times. Might give Comodo Dragon another go though I'm not a fan of yahoo search but I can change that.

    Thanks! I find this one the best one PageTranslator – Get this Extension for Firefox (en-GB)
    The revised separate addon acts odd with hovering links and this one doesn't take up part of the page telling you it's being google translated. I'd just wish it saved the target language.
    I haven't use this one but it seems like for translating you need to click on extension icon. But the one I shared only show the translate icon beside the address bar when it detects a foreign language page and for me it works all the time.

    Thanks. I prefer ones from the addon store but I'll give this a go.

    EDIT: Found this one Translate Whole Page (to English) – Get this Extension for Firefox (en-US) you still have to click to translate on the initial page but it automatically seems to do the other pages.

    Anyway, this has been a great help towards me staying with Firefox. I think it my have been the Comodo online security addon that was slowing some of those pages.

    Updated 18/09/2019 - Now using CIS with Cruelsister settings with exception of Firewall auto-block. Stealthed ports and IPv6 Porle. t 546 DHCP. Also now with Internet Security Essentials installed and primarily using Comodo Dragon since it's been updated recently.

    Not a great deal different from previous, just HIPS enabled and firewall changes.

    Backup solution for Windows is very vague, if you are using Ondrive that's great as a cloud source, but I would also have a HD as a secondary form of backup using Macrium Reflect or similar program. Apart from that great config otherwise.

    Yes, sorry, still searching for a free dedicated backup other than OneDrive and the Windows Default. I'll have a look at Macrium Reflect and related software. Thanks :)
