Details

Description: Location services don't work.

Additional info:
* Firefox 72.0.2
* https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1610306

Steps to reproduce:

Go to Google Maps, Yandex Maps, OpenStreetMap etc. and try to detect your exact location. OpenStreetMap throws "Geolocation error: Unknown error acquiring position" error.

According to bug report, there is no problem on Mozilla's builds. So maybe our packager can fix it on our own build.

Also affects Chromium. Tested using https://browserleaks.com/geo

Our quota has been exceeded.

The network panel in Firefox's browser toolbox shows a failed geolocation request:

{
"error": {
"code": 429,
"message": "Quota exceeded for quota group 'default' and limit 'Requests per day' of service 'geolocation.googleapis.com' for consumer 'project_number:413772536636'.",
"errors": [

"domain": "global",
"reason": "rateLimitExceeded"
}
],
"status": "RESOURCE_EXHAUSTED"
}
}

A workaround for Firefox is to switch to the Mozilla Location Service. I added this information to the wiki:

Mozilla Location Service is not accurate unfortunately. It can't detect exact location, error margin is too high.
