Good morning. I have no problem with Firefox on my desktop accurately showing my location. If I pop onto a store site it automatically shows the right zip code. However I am NY and whenever I use my phone to access somewhere that requires location it defaults to usually somewhere in New Jersey. My Android on Firefox is up to date, my phone (Samsung Galaxy A10E) says all it's software is up to date and I am allowing access to location for Firefox correctly, I believe. But it is frustrating that every time I am out I have to manually change the zip and sometimes go through the step of making a store 'my store' just to get an idea of inventory in my area. Thanks for any help you can provide in advance.

I, too, have this same issue. I'm on an Essential PH-1 phone and in order for me to be able to use any location aware service on any site, I have to switch over to Chrome rather than stay within Firefox. I don't use a VPN, I haven't changed my DNS, my location is on and allowed for every app I use, and most of the time I'm on Wifi but it hasn't worked via WiFi or Mobile data since I received this phone and on my last phone (a UMX U693CL). Is there a flag I should change in Firefox or possibly an app that would correct this problem - any suggestions would be more than welcomed.
