This is so very simple and so the fact that it seems impossible to get a straight answer makes me instantly suspicious. Here is the question: What is my location? Simple! In other words, I have Mozilla Firefox installed on a physical device, which HAPPENS to be a desktop computer, not a mobile phone, etc. In other words, it stays here. So why do alllllll the sites act as though I am literally 930 miles...from my actual, physical location! I have NO VPN running...none. Unfortunately, Firefox is using Google location services, WHICH IS THE PROBLEM. I just installed Firefox, instead of Chrome, to solve that problem. I guess THAT was a stupid move, Firefox is worse!

There needs to be a manner in which the USER can INPUT THEIR LOCATION. I'm not trying to "trick" anyone...I'm actually trying to give people ACCURATE INFORMATION which apparently is beyond the capabilities of the internet, to provide.

When attempting to play some videos with Firefox browser, mainly from X (Twitter) I receive "This video can't be played." However, I can't play them with Safari either. But it will play on Safari on another computer. I don't know what is wrong. Could it be some settings on my computer? I'm not a computer ace but know some things. Thank You for any help/ advice.

Hi there,

Our website, Stjathenaeum.org, goes to a page saying the certification does not match, and says you can continue at your own risk (basically). Is there anywhere to fix this issue?

Hi Windows 11. Every time I open a new tab and make a search I get a field under the bookmarks for my google account. I do not want this. On the web it says I should go to account settings and scroll down to the Linked Accounts section. I cannot find that section. Elsewhere I read that I have to do something in my google account as well. How do I get rid of the field for my google account when searching in firefox, please?

I do not want my searches to be reflected in the address bar. I believe in prior versions of Firefox there was a checkbox to delete that provision. I'm using Firefox 123.0 64-bit with Windows 10 and have been through the setting and more tools areas but found no way to remove that function. I did try the about:config suggestions but still have no joy.

I have been signing in to a certain secure website for years on Firefox. In the last 24 hours, it won't let me sign in and all I see is:

"Bad Request

Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit."

I have tried 20 times. There is nothing wrong on the website; my wife can access the same on her Mac computer.

Any advice? Thank you
