your refer link is about websites. you ask that the geo-location is not working in your browser.

First see in your browser options: Options

As per the refer link and attached screenshot the location functionality is not working in the Mozilla browser and I already check all the browser options for geo-locations but do not work.

Did you allow the website to access your location ?

The screenshot shows the geo-sharing-icon that looks like a cross next to the padlock icon on the location bar. If you click this icon then you can select whether Geo Location is enabled for this website.

  • chrome URI of this icon: chrome://browser/skin/notification-icons/geo.svg

What do you see if you paste navigator.geolocation in the Web Console (best to do this is on a page with a secure https:// connection).

I already enabled the Geo Location in the browser and in the console after running the navigator.geolocation it gives undefined.

Here is the navigator geolocation function result in both chrome and mozilla browser console.

hi, it's probably the same issue as in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1610306 - geolocation is working in firefox builds that are directly provided by mozilla (like snap packages or directly from their homepage), not the ones that are coming from ubuntu....

This works for me in Firefox. I need to confirm to access the location via the geo location icon doorhanger to get the output.

Are you getting the confirmation dialog?

See also "Tools -> Page Info -> Permissions".


navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(function(loc){
  console.log('Your current position is:');
  console.log(`Latitude : ${loc.coords.latitude}`);
  console.log(`Longitude: ${loc.coords.longitude}`);
  console.log(`More or less ${loc.coords.accuracy} meters.`);
});

I had missed that you aren't using Firefox from the Mozilla server.

I assume that API keys aren't included in your Ubuntu Firefox version, see about:support (Help -> Troubleshooting Information).
