Noticed geo.provider.network.url setting in about:config no longer works in firefox 102.0 ubuntu. I use it consistently so it was easy to notice that it no longer had any effect after updating.

tested both on https://maps.google.com and https://browserleaks.com/geo

Is it possible to revert to an older version without losing my data?

You can try Firefox from the official Mozilla server if you currently use a version from the repositories of your Linux distribution to see if it behaves differently.

Thanks for the suggestion. I downloaded firefox-101.0.1 and it works fine there, even after restoring copying over data from the main firefox (http://mzl.la/1xKrzkF) and syncing my firefox account.

I think this may be an issue with firefox-102? Would have to redownload a fresh copy to confirm.

It's either there a bug in 102 or the update process broke something. I've always been wary of updating.

I think i'll just delete the 102 version and continue using 101.

Thanks for your help.

I just downloaded a fresh copy of firefox 102 and i had the same problem. So I think this means there is a bug in 102, or the process for changing location was changed?

Steps: 1. Download 102: https://download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net/pub/firefox/releases/102.0.1/linux-x86_64/en-GB/firefox-102.0.1.tar.bz2

2. Extract to folder

3. Click on firefox

4. Open https://browserleaks.com/geo, and grant permission. It should show the location provided by isp

5. open about:config and edit "geo.provider.network.url" to: data:,{"location":{"lat":84.552145,"lng":8.259976},"accuracy":1000}

6. Go back to https://browserleaks.com/geo and reload multiple times using ctrl+shift+r after granting location access, it still shows location seen previously in step 4, even after restarting browser.

7. The process works as expected in firefox 101
