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?

I want to allow a website to know my location

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.

After a recent update to Firefox, I cannot access Hulu. It requests that I enable location sharing (which I do), but it still doesn't work. I've tweaked settings, disabled add on's and still nothing. I'm using Linux Mint 19.3, Firefox 73.0.1.

Although location is set to block, some sites still redirect to their localized versions

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!

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!
