I can't get location-aware browsing working

Размещено

Location-Aware browsing sounds like it would be really useful for me, but either I can't figure out how to get it activated, or there aren't any commonly used websites that make use of that feature. In the FAQ, the Firefox team mentions going into your Tools section to make some adjustments, but I can't find any such Tools section, and the Preference section, which I assume you must be referring to, doesn't offer any options like that.

Extensions installed:

Adblock Plus

One location-aware site that you can test with is http://maps.google.com/ It should detect that it can get location information from your browser. Another is http://m.flickr.com/ -- click on the "Photos Taken Nearby" link.

What do I have to click on at Google Maps? That's actually the first place I went. Not getting any sort of pop-up.

There's a small "Dot" button below the compass arrows, above the zoom indicator at the top-left of the Google Maps view. Tap that and it will ask if you want to share your location.

Here's how to set your location manually using the "geo.wifi.uri" preference: http://dougt.org/wordpress/2010/06/geolocation-setting-your-position-manually/

Note: You might want to upgrade to Mobile Firefox 1.1 first, because it has an improved about:config screen that makes it much easier to change these settings.

thanks for the info , but my browser returns this "Your location could not be determined" in Google maps. Is this feature doesn't work properly for Mozilla 3.5.7, even the Firefox add-on for setting location manually says it is not available for this 3.5.7 build

goutham, I could be wrong but I don't know of a way to set your location manually on desktop firefox. You could try upgrading to the latest version of Firefox (3.6.7) - it works for me.
