Want "Do not allow" for websites requesting location.

A prompt appears on every website I visit that asks if I will allow www.sampleswebsite.com to access my location. My answer is always NO and tired of the prompt appearing. I thought I had checked everything I could to keep my location from being accessed, but apparently not. I dug a little deeper and I did find instructions to stop these permanently, theoretically. The first step is to type "about: config" in the URL bar. OK. When I did that I got a scary message that this action might void my warranty and compromise my stability, security, and performance, followed by a waiver button saying "I accept the risk!" Huh? What warranty? Is this for real or just spam? Why would I have to accept a risk for what is supposed to be an 'opt-in' feature? Shame on whoever authored and/or authorized this blatant scare tactic! Call me old-fashioned but I don't feel like everyone in the world needs to know what I am doing, where I am doing it, and at what time. My own mother doesn't ask for that. Pretty sure she knows less about me than Google. Defending my privacy should not be an endurance test. How do I say NO, once and for all, until I change my mind? Why must I get caught in an endless loop of wrong answers when I just want to say MYOB. I am well aware that I may have missed some information, but why not just have a clear and obvious opt-in button that you select if you want it, and do nothing if you don't? So the default would be the LEAST intrusive option.

firefox is slow as hell

today a closed my firefox (53.0.2 - 32bit) and tried opening it again. This is a known issue with Windows (10), that if you close and try to open again a program in a quick sequence, the stupid OS can't handle the information and won't open the program. Usually you get a stupid message on "the process is still running" and after shutting the process everything goes back to normal. Well, not this time. Firefox just stopped altogether and won't start even after restarting the OS. Uninstalled Firefox and re-installed it - same fucking problem. Uninstalled, cleared registry entries - not working. Uninstalled, reinstalled, eliminated everything remotely related to Firefox. Nothing will make it work properly. waited 10 min. for it to open, when it finally did, clicked the "refresh" option - offered by firefox, after detecting my many uninstall-reinstall actions. Crashed, It simply looks like I'm trying to run firefox on my old xt-90. Btw, in safe-mode windows it works fine, so I guess it has to do with "working along" some other processes/apps in windows 10. But no, I'm not reinstalling my OS for a browser problem, since even Edge is now better than firefox (OMFG!) and does not crash nor feels like an old lady trying to walk around with her walking stick. Does anyone here has/had this kind of problem? Why the hell can't firefox recover itself from a simply crash? Why won't it fix itself in windows safe mode? Why the fucking hell does it create so much stupid information inside my OS that even after uninstalling, it keeps making the same stupid associations, which keeps it from working?
