Very simple: how can I block GEOLOCATION in Firefox 29.0.1? Am using Snow Leopard 10.6. Mozilla Support :

                                       "In the URL bar, type about:config
                                                                 Type geo.enabled"

DOES NOT WORK; I tried several ways using above advice: 1) typed both on 2 lines. 2) typed both on one line Both 1) & 2) close and separately. WASTED MUCH TIME..

People can not spy on you. Firefox only requests a location when a website makes a request, and only shares your location when you has approved the request. Firefox does not track or remember your location as you browse.

It is an opt-in service, to turn disable it do the following:

*   Type about:config into the location bar and press enter
  • Accept the warning message that appears, you will be taken to a list of preferences
 *  Locate the preference geo.enabled, double-click on it to change its value to false 

For more details on it see http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/geolocation/


Some website like Google is using your IP Address to determine where you are located, when the GeoLocation pref is turned off. GeoLocation uses wi-fi statistical information to determine your location (doesn't work for a wired connection PC), whereas your IP Address is matched thru service provider information about a particular IP Address or a narrow range of IP Addresses. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IP_Address

To keep websites from knowing your IP Address (and thus your approximate location - the location of an IP addresses typically isn't as accurate as GeoLocation) you would need to use a Proxy to serve as a "middle-man" connection. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proxy_server

Note that Firefox will always ask for confirmation via a notification bar to use Geolocation.
