Details

Current state
If a user whose default FIrefox and/or system language is English (For example), but that user translates a page to Spanish, the next time the user lands on a translatable website, English will be the default destination language.

Enhancement
If a user whose default Firefox and/or system language is English (for example), but that user translates a page to Spanish, the next time the user lands on a translatable website, Spanish will be the default destination language offered by the translation feature.

Notes:

  • Remembering the last destination language will persist across sessions until the user chooses a different destination language.
  • Remembering the last destination language will be persistent across full page and selection translation features (selection translation currently in pre-development).

Remembering the user's last destination language will improve the UX of the feature, since the user is likely to use the same destination language across multiple pages, and this language may be different than their system or Firefox default.
