Firefox is using a very old geolocation

Whenever any website asks to access my location, and I allow it, Firefox tells that website that I am in a faraway place that I last visited over a year ago. What's worse, this place happens to be a very niche medical facility, which is upsetting as I don't expect to be revealing my medical history just by allowing access to my location.

I am not using a VPN or proxy or anything of that sort. If I look up my IP address in GeoIP2 or iplocation.net, it shows the correct city that I am actually in. How can I force Firefox to update my location (or at least, get it to uncache this old location)?

I'm using Firefox 109.0.1 on Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS.

I realize that the page I am using findbar to search from reloads and scrolls to the top using some Javascript so that when I return to the searched page from a popup, the last search item is no longer focused when I come back so (or press F3 or Ctrl G) e.g. if I found the 29th hit, then I have to click down 30 times to get to the next search hit.

I tried using add-in Luminous to disable the reload/scroll to top of the page that I am searching but failed. It is a complicated add-in.

Is there any way to jump say 10 hits down at once?

I have that issue also it shows up anytime I try PNC.com or my health care insurance. The workaround is using Firefox's private window. I removed my saved login and dumped my data, cookies, site data, and cache but that didn't help. That has been a pain restoring other sites I had saved, but that's another story.

  See image for error message.

When I go to a website my username is automaticaly typed in, but my password isn't. And every time I log in it asks me to save the password and i click on 'allow' but it never seems to save it. When I go to saved login data it says that 'no synchronized login data' even though everything is checked correctly in the settings and it works just fine on other devices with this firefox account logged on. How do I fix this?

I suddenly began seeing weird, random text rendering problems in the browser. It looked like tiny bites had been taken out of random letters.

At first I thought my external monitor developed bad pixels, but I discovered that the problem only occurred on Firefox (109.0.1): No other browser (Chrome, Edge, Brave, Opera) showed the issue. Also, the problem only showed on my external monitors: it disappeared when I moved the browser window to my laptop screen.

I first noticed it only on letter "t" in the google search bar: I tested every other letter and none showed the same problem. In a continuous line of repeating "t" letters, the corruption occurred in a repeating pattern, only corrupting letters in position 7, 9, 16, 18, 20. But then I noticed elsewhere on the page I a random letter "a' was sometimes affected.

My NVIDIA studio driver needed updating (to 528.24), so I did that and the problem seems to have resolved. Very strange.

I have tried watching videos through chrome and other browsers by searching something via duck duck go and watching that video on duck duck go, and it works on other browser so it must be specific to firefox.

Whenever I try to watch a video, in the drop down bar firefox select to mute audio for some reason. I then select 'allow audio and video' and refresh the page but the video is still muted for some reason. This also happens when I try to use other video sites. This has only started to happen recently in the past two days (and yes I am updated to the latest version of firefox).

I've been making my own Firefox theme using the Firefox Color extension. I uploaded an image but I can't figure out how to show the image on the new tab screen. Setting the new tab page color to transparent only makes everything white. I know the image is uploaded correctly because I can see some of it in the toolbar and tab list. Is it possible to show the image on the new tab page?

Good morning,

I have 3 devices connected to my Firefox account: a Windows 10 desktop, a Windows 11 laptop, and an iPhone 13. I have sync enabled on all 3 devices. My desktop shows 217 logins and paswords, but my iPhone and Windows 11 laptop (ASUS Zenbook) only show 47. No matter what I do, I cannot get all the passwords to sync from my desktop, to the other two devices. I've logged out and back in, disabled and enabled syncing, manually synced, but still nothing.

Is there something else that I'm missing or not doing that I should be?

Thanks in advance.

I received from Firefox that my AT&T email had been breached and a recommendation to change my password. I had trouble changing it on Firefox so I got assistance from AT&T technical support. They were able to help me change my password, however, I was directed to use the Microsoft Edge browser. Now I can access email thru Microsoft Edge, but now cannot get my email on Firefox. After several different attempts, the Technician told me that the problem was contained within the Firefox Browser, and that I would have to uninstall if and download the browser again. However, I would loose all of my bookmark favorites. I do not agree with the recommended solution, as I have the Firefox Browser set for auto updates, and the email was working just fine prior to my changing the password. Are there other options available thru Firefox in order for me to get my email? Also, the Technician first had me to go to settings and delete cookies, browsing history, cache, etc. PLEASE HELP!. I do not like Microsoft Edge and much prefer to use Firefox.

From some point on, my Firefox started behaving strangely. When I start up the browser, it opens new window under other opened windows instead of does it above ones. When I try to open new window in an already running browser, it does it properly. In my mind, it's really uncomfortable and unintuitive behavior so it will be good if I can fix this issue and make Firefox starts up normally (on top of other windows) like all other applications in my system. I'm currently running on 64-bit Ubuntu 22.04. Firefox (snap) version 109.0.1.

Thank in advance for any help or advice regarding my problem.
