Hi,

Each time i start firefox on my laptop and syncing firefox, it shows a different location than my actual place that i am logging in(different country) . I was at the location roughly ten months ago.

I do not use a VPN and there is no proxy set up for the browser or system wide. I have checked the websites you've mentioned and it shows my current correct locations and information looks correct regarding the ISP. How does the functionality of presenting the location in the connected devices works? is it something related to IP or can it be affected via OS configurations and/or third party software? I'm using linux and for being able to gather geo related information in the aforementioned links by you I needed to uncheck "Block new requests asking to access your location" inside the location permissions inside firefox setting. The problem still persists and I get a different location while i sync my laptop.

Thanks in advance.

Turn off this blocker. Any difference?

It is unchecked (turned off) otherwise i couldn't verify the geolocations that you provided for me to check up upon in your first reply. The problem still exists.
