Firefox is using a very old geolocation

Whenever any website asks to access my location, and I allow it, Firefox tells that website that I am in a faraway place that I last visited over a year ago. What's worse, this place happens to be a very niche medical facility, which is upsetting as I don't expect to be revealing my medical history just by allowing access to my location.

I am not using a VPN or proxy or anything of that sort. If I look up my IP address in GeoIP2 or iplocation.net, it shows the correct city that I am actually in. How can I force Firefox to update my location (or at least, get it to uncache this old location)?

I'm using Firefox 109.0.1 on Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS.

Could be because the Firefox version you use from the Ubuntu repositories doesn't have all the special keys (keyMozillaFound: FALSE).

It is possible that Firefox from the repositories behaves differently than Firefox from the Mozilla server. You can try Firefox from the Mozilla server to see if that makes a difference.
