When at a website that needs my location such as Toyota. It was going to take me to dealerships in my area. It thought I was in South Carolina. It should know my location. I don't know if this is a Mozilla problem. I need to know how to fix it.

What does this webpage say about your location? http://whatismyipaddress.com/

It sees me as being in South Carolina (the zip code they think I'm at in order to find dealerships for me - Toyota) while my zip is in Alabama. I don't need to change my ip address. It is correct.

Your ip address is provided by your ISP. Only they can change it.

I'm aware of how my ISP works. What I want to know is why I have been to several websites now that think I am located in South Carolina. This does not make sense to me.

It found me where I should be. I don't know yet if this worked. Thank you. I'm hopeful.
