Using Firefox 72.0.2 and Ubuntu 16.04. Location sharing was working, up until today. Google maps and Hulu says that my location could not be determined. Would appear that something broke with Firefox.

That appears to be a problem with Firefox from the repositories that doesn't seem to include the Mozilla Location Service Key and doesn't offer an alternative. You can check that on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page.

You will have to use Firefox from the Mozilla server. Note that current is Firefox 73.0.1.

I have filed a bug report with Ubuntu. While your post does not solve the immediate problem, it does point to possible solutions. Thank-you.
