I use Windows 10 and live in UK but every website based on my geolocation settings(hope I'm using right terminology, basically websites that check my IP address) treat me as I am based in Germany. I.E YouTube displays me German content, other website that don't need subscription, displays me German content and all website is in German. I checked and in Firefox, and Firefox only, my IP is shown as IP originated from Hamburg. Can I change this? And how? I said that only Firefox do that as I've checked in Edge and Chrome and they both display my IP correct. I also called my ISP about that and they checked and there's everything ok at their end. I already deleted all the cookies from Firefox, but it didn't worked. IP is still German. How can I fix that?

What does this webpage say about your location? http://whatismyipaddress.com/ Under the map, look for Location not accurate?

When I opened the page, it says that my location is Deutschland and my ISP is: Leaseweb Deutschland GmbH, which is obviously not true. When I tried to click on update my IP location pop-up from Firefox come up asking if I want to share my location with this website. When I clicked to share, next pop-up come up, this time at the middle of the page saying "An error has occured,please refresh the page", when I did refreshed the page, there is the same string of events. Firs pop-up from Firefox on the top left side of the screen asking if I want to share my location, when I click on share, pop-up at the middle of the screen come up informing me there is an error.
