Your molly is very preggo, id say she has a few more days to go. If you want to save the fry , add a lot of bushy plants in a corner or buy a breeders box/net and put her into it when she is birthing. The fry will eat crushed adult fish food.

Well is there a male in the tank with her? If she has been like that for awhile then she might be full of unfertilized eggs.

So there is a male in the tank? Whats the male to female ratio? If the male spends all the time with the female he might harass and stress her out, also sometimes moving the fish will stress her out and cause her to abort her pregnancy. She is pretty boxed though but if you say she has been like this for a long time I don't know. Did you just feed them?

Well the dark spots will usually appear around the anal fin. Its called a gravid spot, and sometimes you can see the eyes of each fry. Its awesome when you do see them.
