Hi there,

I figured out that google has made map api to work in SSL sites, on https:// sites. Geolocation is working fine in other browsers for https:// sites, but it is not working in firefox. I'm trying google developer map page in firefox This is not working in firefox. it gives me the error saying 'Error: The Geolocation service failed.'.

please have a look in to this issue.

I tested in Firefox 48 on Windows 7 and it worked normally. Left side of screenshot is the permission prompt -- do you get the prompt? -- and right side is the detection several seconds later.
