Abstract: We construct a Tychonoff first countable space X and an autohomeomorphism f with no fixed points (either a translation or a reflection) such that $ \beta f$ does have a fixed point answering a question of Krawczyk and Steprāns. We do this by replacing each point of Mrowka's construction of a first countable space whose growth has size one with a copy of the integers which can be translated.
