How do I turn on location services?

On my home page in the Yahoo weather app I try to set my location and I get the error message "Browser denied permission to get your current location"

How do I fix that?

Re: How do I turn on location services?

You can inspect and manage the permissions for the domain in the currently selected tab via these steps:

  • Click the "Site Identity Button" (globe/padlock) on the location bar
  • Click "More Information" to open "Tools > Page Info" with the Security tab selected
  • Go to the Permissions tab (Tools > Page Info > Permissions) to check the permissions for the domain in the currently selected tab

You can inspect and manage the permissions for all domains on the aboutSmiley Tongueermissions page.

Delete the permissions.sqlite file to reset all permissions.
