I use Firefox with DuckDuckGo. I cannot turn off location-aware browsing permanently. I have to do it manually. How do I disable the location permanently?

Hello,

I use the most recent version of Firefox with Windows 8.1. I browse using DuckDuckGo. I am unable to follow the procedure to PERMANENTLY disable this setting, which specifies: "in the URL bar, type about: config". Obviously, this won't work in the DuckDuckGo URL bar. I have to disable the location-based browsing manually each time.

How do I proceed to permanently disable this feature?

Thanks,

harkkana
