Can someone help me how to activate GPS- tracking?

I don't know how to enabel it ( turn it ON).

At the same while I don't know if this has to do if I use Privacy mode ( because I've read that normaly Friefox disabels it), but it must be some type of rules/ exceptions ( permanent). But at the same while does it matter what type of surfing mode I'm using? ( as I've already mentioned that I newer uses normal mode).

Do I have to give permission ( go to Settings->Activate GPS- tracking), or can I just give local permission into Firefox ( have this permanently OFF?)

But hower I myself is newbie,and could't find any specific instructions how to activate it. So where can I find this?

Can it also be so that it has to do with specific devices?

This does not sound like an issue with Firefox for Android, but I hope that i can help.

if you open the Android Settings app, select Security & Location then scroll down the list, you should see the setting to turn on Location.

I hope that this helps.
