Does not work in new FF versions Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Firefow 20. Creating a new location, Save Edition, and... nothing happens. Edition/location is gone like never been created.
Good idea.
Would be even better if it will work at all.

Useless against Google Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Don't bother if trying to defeat autolocation in Google Maps, etc. Google searches will still happily use the location listed for your IP address.

It worked perfectly for 2 months. All of a sudden it stopped working few days ago. I tried re-installation multiple times, nothing seemed to work. Whether it's the error on new FF version's or developer's side, I hope it'll get sorted soon. All in all - it's great app when working properly.

Works great for me! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Running XP Pro SP3 and FF 16.02 ( till they get the shortcut icon bug in 17.+ worked out ).

This addon does exactly what it claims and I am now able to download from sites where previous attempts failed with messages like "our service is not available in your country".

Extremely simple to use --just click on the "create new location icon", then type in the name of where you want to be.

Next, zoom in via the white plus sign till you see the "save location" icon not grey, click on the icon, and you're done.

The following helpful tips are repeated from a previous review by someone :

1. Go to "Firefox -> Geolocater -> Manage" (or if your menu bar is turned on: Tools -> Geolocater -> Manage)
2. Hit the "Create Geolocation" button and drag the marker to pin to your desired location on the map.
3. Yes there's more to it than just that! No click the "Switch from Select to Search geolocation" button.
4. Check the address details if you so wish, then hit the "Save edition button".
5. Go to Firefox/Tools -> Geolocator and ensure your new location is slected and not "Google service".

The UI takes a bit of getting used to but the important thing is it works well Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm developing a web app that uses geo-location... but for an area that is many thousands of miles from me. This add-on worked *perfectly* throughout development. It took me a bit to get my head around the UI but once I did it is actually quick and easy to use. Being able to simulate movement is phenomenally cool and helpful. I dropped by today just to see if the developer had a donate option.

Works great *IF* you know how to use it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

From ready most negative reviews it appears most people aren't using the plugin properly! Here's how to set your location correctly:

1. Go to "Firefox -> Geolocater -> Manage" (or if your menu bar is turned on: Tools -> Geolocater -> Manage)
2. Hit the "Create Geolocation" button and drag the marker to pin to your desired location on the map.
3. Yes there's more to it than just that! No click the "Switch from Select to Search geolocation" button.
4. Check the address details if you so wish, then hit the "Save edition button".
5. Go to Firefox/Tools -> Geolocator and ensure your new location is slected and not "Google service".

If you do all that, it'll work perfectly!

Clearer instructions on the main add-on page would reduce the amount of disappointed users and bad reviews though!

Does not work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Tried, and tried again, restarted browser, restarted computer, but no luck. Shows under tools, but that's it. Manage does not work, clicking Google service makes no difference. Pity. I use Firefox 15.0.1 and Win7 professional.
