Firefox 3.5 How to Disable Geolocation Tracking Feature ...
« on: November 03, 2009, 11:46:28 PM »

Firefox 3.5.x ships with Geo Location enabled by default. This allows websites through google to track your location. To disable this privacy intrusive feature simply type in the url bar about:config then type geo.enabled and toggle it to false.

Now that explains something which has puzzled me, when I'm in Spain any ads I happen to see are in Spanish, and revert back to English when I come home. 

Now that is naughty, thanks for the tip
