Firefox can't find my location

Posted

Firefox recently updated itself to the newest version. I don't know which version that was because I already uninstalled it and installed an older version, which does not have the problem the new version has. And that problem is that Firefox no longer can determine my location. A weather site and a hotel that wanted to obtain my location were not able to with the new version of FF.

These sites work on IE and they work with my now-installed older version. There used to be a small popup that would ask if it was ok if Firefox shared my location, but this popup no longer appears. Believe me I tried a great many things to fix it, all of which did not work. But installing an older version works just great. Anybody else having this problem? Any fixes?
