Mozilla maintains an open ecosystem for add-ons, which gives developers many choices in how they create, use, and deploy their work. This same openness also provides malicious actors more opportunities as well. While Mozilla can identify and block malicious add-ons discovered through tooling, reviews, or user reports, this is not always enough.

Firefox version 115 introduced Quarantined Domains to protect user privacy and security when we discover significant security issues presented by malicious actors. This feature allows us to prevent attacks by malicious actors targeting specific domains when we have reason to believe there may be malicious add-ons we have not yet discovered. Users can also control this behavior for each add-on in the Add-on Manager (about:addons) starting with Firefox version 116. We will be further improving the UI for users in future releases.

Mozilla Firefox 117 beta brings an automatic language translator for websites, and it works offline
Mozilla Firefox is bringing an automatic translator for websites. The feature is currently available in Firefox 117 beta.

This feature has existed in Chrome for ages, but unlike Google's browser, which sends the data to its servers, Firefox's automatic translation feature uses on-device translation. The latter is much better for your privacy, and works offline.
Firefox's offline translation feature supports the following languages: Bulgarian, Catalan, Czech, Dutch, English, Estonian, French, German, Hungarian, Icelandic, Italian, Norwegian Bokmål, Norwegian Nynorsk, Persian (Farsi), Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Ukrainian.

got it! Question on my win10, firefox does not remember its last size setting, always opens half-sized. Other browsers remember this :unsure:
No problem here on my Firefox, but I recall for same "issue" when I tried recently Mullvad Browser what is based on FF ESR...
My first reaction is always testing a new user profile of Firefox, most of time does work to fix such issues ;)

yes... about:config | privacy.resistfingerprinting = true

so if that's the reason, I'll live with it, THANKS :D
If that's not default, I guess I set that, I just don't remember doing that... :oops::ROFLMAO:
I understood you were having trouble getting FF to open maximized? I had the same issue recently, nothing else, just FF.
