On my home page in the Yahoo weather app I try to set my location and I get the error message "Browser denied permission to get your current location"

How do I fix that?

Chosen solution

You can inspect and manage the permissions for the domain in the currently selected tab via these steps:

  • Click the "Site Identity Button" (globe/padlock) on the location bar
  • Click "More Information" to open "Tools > Page Info" with the Security tab selected
  • Go to the Permissions tab (Tools > Page Info > Permissions) to check the permissions for the domain in the currently selected tab

You can inspect and manage the permissions for all domains on the about:permissions page.

Delete the permissions.sqlite file to reset all permissions.
