a website asked I wanted to automatically tell them my geographic location. Firefox popped up a screen with the option. How do I get back to this option?.
A newspaper website asked if I wanted to tell them my location. Firfox popped up and asked if I wanted to automatically tell sites that ask my geographic location. I clicked and got more information. There was a section that gave instructions to permanently disable geographic location tracking. I followed the directions to disable, even though the default is no tracking. I had to type an two words with a : separating them into the address bar. This brought me to a long list of settings. I followed the directions but now it seems my location is being tracked by everyone.
How do I get back to this list of settings (which was not accessed through Options) to go back to the default?
You probably had to go to about:support. Please keep in mind that even with geolocation disabled websites can still see your general location from your IP address.Read this answer in context 👍 1
