Firefox: “I see where you are!”, Me: “No, ya don’t!” [Turning off Geolocation Tracking in Firefox]

Geolocation Tracking/Tagging, ever heard of it? No? Check out the link!

Short version: It’s the identification of your geological location. Can be good, can be bad. I don’t like being stalked though! Firefox, by standard, has geolocation tracking enabled. If you don’t want it, turn it off with a few simple steps:

  1. Type in “about:config” in your url bar
  2. Type in “geo” in the filter bar
  3. Look for “geo.enabled” and turn its value to “false”
  4. For an extra icing on the cake: look for “geo.wifi.uri” and change its content to “WHATEVERYOUDESIRE”

This is how it looks after the change:

Enjoy your stalking-free Firefox!
