Hi,

Geolocation doesn't seem to work on Firefox for me. I can't use Google Maps or other location-based services even after giving permissions.

I found this post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1282004#answer-1297537

I got the following results:

https://browserleaks.com/geo - I get "POSITION_UNAVAILABLE" https://bestvpn.org/html5demos/geo/ - "failed" https://www.iplocation.net/find-ip-address - correctly gives New York, New York, the location of my VPN's proxy

I also copied the following from 'about:config':

Application Basics


Name: Firefox Version: 78.0.1 Build ID: 20200701193652 Distribution ID: archlinux User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0 OS: Linux 5.7.7-arch1-1 Multiprocess Windows: 1/1 Enabled by default Remote Processes: 8 Enterprise Policies: Inactive Google Location Service Key: Found Google Safebrowsing Key: Found Mozilla Location Service Key: Found Safe Mode: false

Thanks in advance for your help!

It says in Mozilla documentation: "By default, Firefox uses Google Location Services to determine your location by sending: your computer’s IP address" https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/does-firefox-share-my-location-websites

I do not want Google to know where I am and collect a dossier on my browsing history. I'm not talking about doing this on a smartphone where location is important; this is on a PC.

I did not see it in Preferences, but can it be disabled by entering about:config and changing one of the listed preferences?

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.

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?

I know most people are trying to stop location services permissions, but I like letting sites like Yelp, etc, know where I am so they can use "current location." I have tried to use the privacy settings to add websites that I allow location permission, but that part of the site doesn't work for me. I can't add any websites in the box. I'm very smart, but I can't figure this out. I need a super intensely simplified step-by-step lesson to figure it out. I've been trying for 2 weeks on my own and am ready to dump firefox for chrome, where I can allow location permissions very easily. Please help me. Thanks.

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 -

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

I am living in Spain, and browse in English. Often when I do a search with Google, although the result is linking to a page in English, the final page is in the one for the Spanish market (es_Es).

A good example is the Seagate website. Even direct links from other forums are redirected to their Spanish version. Also, after cleaning cache for Seagate sites, restarting, AND trying it in a Private Window.

My config: macOs 10.15.4 set to UK English. Firefox Dev Edition 76.0b3, (language same as OS) with: - Privacy & Security: Enhanced Tracking Protection > Standard - Privacy & Security: Locations > "Block new requests asking to access your location" checked - about:config > geo.enabled set to false. Google Search Region Settings are set to "United States". –

Thank you!

Very weird problem. I moved from Pennsylvania to New York 2 months ago. Randomly, via Firefox desktop on Windows 10, it gives off my OLD address. Random sites that ask for location that is. I'm baffled because:

Clean Firefox Install (v75 64 bit) Clean Windows 10 Install

I used Firefox account password reset, even that email gave the correct info:

Firefox on Windows 10 My Town, NY, United States (estimated)

But:

https://browserleaks.com/geo (shows my old Pennsylvania town) https://whatismyipaddress.com/ (shows correct NY current location) Google = shows correct NY current location Home Depot = shows old PA town Maxmind = shows correct NY current location IP2location = shows correct NY current location

Firefox Options / Privacy & Security / Saved Addresses = EMPTY

The baffling thing is Windows 10 weather app and maps app does the same thing, shows old PA town. Others complain of the same bug in Window 10 too.
