I use my laptop overseas and most websites default to the local language, usually not English. I installed Geolocater, and made my geolocation in the USA, hoping it would make websites default to English. No luck though.

Sends data with all available Wi-Fi networks (even with MAC addresses) every few seconds to Google

Causes severe network issues - avoid! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This plugin causes network spikes/lag? on my wireless network, I'm not sure how it does it, but it clearly creates issues every 4-5 seconds as shown on any speed test or even copying files using SMB from a local network share. Basically the speed of the adapter drops to around 1/10th usual speed. Not affected on LAN. Disabling the plugin __immediately__ fixes the problem (after restart), re-enabling it will cause the issue again. You don't even have to be on a webpage for the issue to show! even in settings as the only tab causes the problem. Not sure why or if the application is now rogue but its a issue for sure. Tested using smb and speedtest in internet explorer.

Wireless 7260AC (intel), Win 8.1 x64 - Computer literacy (self diagnosed - Medium/High)
Time overall effort took to find root cause appx 24hours, 2 clonezilla backups later and a clean install. Installing one application at a time (thought it was a intel driver issue).

Don't work in FF 34 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

New locations are not saved. Search for a place are not working.

Exactly what I was looking for Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Works like a charm with FF 34.0. I wonder if it is possible to use longitude and lattitude when searching a geolocation.

NOT WORK Rated 1 out of 5 stars

NOT work at all..I have to re-install firefox 9, 22, 30, 32, and this simply does not work...change from about config also has no effect

Nice Add-on but confusing interface Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This Addon works in FF30.0

By default when you install this add-on you won't see any button in the toolbar. That makes most of the users think that this add-on doesn't work with their version of FF.

To work with this add-on, go to Menu->Add-ons. Click Extensions tab. From the list, find this Add-on and click on Options button.

A new tab with map gets opened. Create a new GeoLocation and move the marker pointer to whichever location you want (on the map) and click save. Give a appropriate name for this location so you can remember it and click Save.

I hope above explanation helps someone.

The author of this Add-on should give this How To Use guide in the description note.

No Functionality Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Currently does nothing (for me at least) under FF30.0

Fail ... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Add-on does not work. I installed it and ... nothing. Just a big map. Location searches ... nothing. You can click the search button for eternity with no results.

Browser: Firefox v30.0

Works on Firefox 29.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm changing my last review. I upgraded my Firefox 25 to 29 and the Geolocator extension worked again!

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Can't Save Geolocation? Here's a Easy Fix Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Like some of the more recent commentators, I was unable to save new geolocations. But I stumbled on a easy fix: When you've finished defining the new location, you'll find see a blank "Country" field at the bottom of the Geolocation Address panel. Click on the blank field; a drop-down list appears, also blank except for a "-" on the top line; click on the "-". You can now save the new geolocation.

It's that simple!

Geolocation Not Working Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I installed the add for FF22 and FF26, but in neither of the two the add work. :( !

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This worked great under 23.0.1 Ever since when a web page tries to access a destination, it just hangs up. I've recently upgraded to FF 26 and the problem still persists. Has anyone had any luck getting this to work with new versions of FF? Developers - what say you? When this works it's great, but not so great now.

ASCII Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works if you use ASCII characters in adresses. Or fix it in about:config > extensions.geolocater.localhost

Dear below reviewer,
Very helpful.
The block caps are also a nice touch.

Geolocator did not light up the "Save" icon, or allow my location to be saved until I clicked the "Toggle search mode" icon and entered my postal address. However, it is working fine now that is done.
