Did you have to change internet service providers? If not, maybe your IP number did not change yet?

No, did not change internet services. This only happens in Firefox, not in my safari

Thank you...was using that as last resort. Actually just fixed problem 10 mins ago. Realized it was Google not Firefox. Went into settings, location and problem fixed. Thank you for your support.
