I think it should be possible to manually set the location exposed by the geolocation api in the settings menu, instead of having to do it in about:config.

Of course manually setting it might be necessary in cases the geolocation isn't working properly - in my case it was 160 km off, rendering the feature useless for most websites - or is just not wanted.

Strollin' around

I specifically came here to suggest this feature myself, as it's a significant issue for a desktop PC. My geolocation is automatically detected as being roughly 400km away (probably some kind of network point belonging to my ISP), so all the websites that use the geolocation to set a local store get it completely wrong. For my desktop PC, I'd like to be able to set the geolocation to be some generic point in my local suburb, either by clicking on a map or just entering some coordinates.
