Why is my Firefox set to France when I actually live in Seattle?
Every time I open a website I get the French version of it. All my settings are set to the US (language and geolocalization).
Additional System Details
- Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.15; rv:72.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/72.0
You can use websites like these to see how your location is reported.
I know but that is not what I am asking, though.... thanks anyway.
So, is your location reported correctly by both websites ?
Are you possibly using a VPN ?
There should be a reason if your location is that much off.
That's the thing: I am not using a VPN. Safari has my location set to where I am. It only happens when I am using Firefox.
So, the websites I posted above also report the wrong location ?
You can check the connection settings.
- Options/Preferences -> General -> Network: Connection -> Settings
If you do not need to use a proxy to connect to internet then try to select "No Proxy" if "Use the system proxy settings" or one of the others do not work properly.
