How to Disable Location-Aware Browsing [Firefox 3.5]

If you are concerned about your privacy and don’t wish for Firefox’s new Location-Aware Browsing feature, you have probably noticed that there is no setting to turn it off in the Preferences screen. You can disable this feature though, you just have to use about:config.

1. Open Firefox.

2. Go to the Address bar and input about:config.

3. If you see a warning appear, click the I’ll be careful, I promise button.

4. Go to geo.enabled and double-click it.

5. The value for geo.enabled will change to false. You have just disabled Location-Aware Browsing.
