How do I stop the annoying "Allow Location Access" pop-up??

Posted

Literally every site comes with this annoying pop-up on firefox

"Will you allow [enter site here] to access your location?"


The thing is I delete cookies/clear browser often. A lot of sites (paypal, bank of america, etc) have problems and the easiest way to fix it is literally to clear your cookies and try it again.

There is only ONE site that I want to allow location access (a news site that finds local news). I don't care for the feature on other sites. Nor do I want to be asked on literally half the sites I visit.

Is there a way to allow location access on only one website and not others? Like how you can save passwords for logins on sites, is there a way to save the location access on one site? Or is there a way to disable firefox from even asking me and by default have it set to "DENY ACCESS" and if I want to allow access is there a way to make a few clicks to allow access for the site I'm on.
