1. Open Firefox.

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

3. Press Enter on your keyboard.

4. When the This might void your warrenty! message appears, simply click the I’ll be careful, I promise! button.

5. Locate and then double-click geo.enabled.

6. The value will change from true to false.

7. Restart your browser.
