I want to build a progressive web app. This app requires the user's GPS coordinates. In order to test this functionality cross-browser, I use w3schooll geolocation implementation. Link: https://www.w3schools.com/html/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml5_geolocation

Compared to Chrome, Firefox sometimes returns the wrong coordinates. For example yesterday (13/03/2020) the coordinates were wrong all day. Today (14/03/2020) the coordinates are right. The coordinates are crucial for the success of the app. I use Firefox 74.0

Recently moved and transferred cable internet service to new address, keeping same equipment. But when using Firefox, my home geo-location still shows as being in my former region when using online maps, shopping, etc, sites. I'm sure it's not a DNS/server issue as other web browsers show my correct geolocation, and those "what is my IP" sites also show correct region. ISP customer service also confirms my profile is updated.

For the record: - Firefox version: 71.0 - Verified sites have location request permissions - Tried launching in Firefox safe mode - Tried Firefox Refresh

Any suggestions greatly appreciate -

Allow Location Access completely freezes up Firefox 65.0.2

Firefox completely freezes up whenever I visit a page that uses geolocation services and I Allow Location Access. An example URL is:

https://www.guitarcenter.com/Used/Fender/Vintage-Reissue-1959-Bassman-LTD-4x10-Tube-Guitar-Combo-Amp.gc

Another example is FedEx.com.

I've tried troubleshooting this by running Firefox in Safe Mode but that does not help. The only way I can get those pages to work again without freezing up Firefox is to clear out or disallow location permissions.

I noticed that version 65.0.2 supposedly fixed a bug related to geolocation services affecting Windows users. Well, for me at least, this bug fix has introduced a bug that I didn't have before.

How can I get this looked into and fixed?

Literally every site comes with this annoying pop-up on firefox

"Will you allow [enter site here] to access your location?"


The thing is I delete cookies/clear browser often. A lot of sites (paypal, bank of america, etc) have problems and the easiest way to fix it is literally to clear your cookies and try it again.

There is only ONE site that I want to allow location access (a news site that finds local news). I don't care for the feature on other sites. Nor do I want to be asked on literally half the sites I visit.

Is there a way to allow location access on only one website and not others? Like how you can save passwords for logins on sites, is there a way to save the location access on one site? Or is there a way to disable firefox from even asking me and by default have it set to "DENY ACCESS" and if I want to allow access is there a way to make a few clicks to allow access for the site I'm on.
