Very weird problem. I moved from Pennsylvania to New York 2 months ago. Randomly, via Firefox desktop on Windows 10, it gives off my OLD address. Random sites that ask for location that is. I'm baffled because:
Clean Firefox Install (v75 64 bit) Clean Windows 10 Install
I used Firefox account password reset, even that email gave the correct info:
Firefox on Windows 10 My Town, NY, United States (estimated)
https://browserleaks.com/geo (shows my old Pennsylvania town) https://whatismyipaddress.com/ (shows correct NY current location) Google = shows correct NY current location Home Depot = shows old PA town Maxmind = shows correct NY current location IP2location = shows correct NY current location
Firefox Options / Privacy & Security / Saved Addresses = EMPTY
The baffling thing is Windows 10 weather app and maps app does the same thing, shows old PA town. Others complain of the same bug in Window 10 too.

I'm not behind a VPN either.
Same Internet Service Provider now as when you were in PA? If so, is the I.P.Address the same as you had in PA?
Different ISP Different IP address Clean Firefox Install + Profile Clean Windows 10 Install
Works fine in Safari iPhone on the same WiFi network/IP address too.
Sorry, that's all I have for ideas.
Replicated on LTE also, in Firefox, Edge, Windows 10 apps.
