Bugs

  • IE9 appears to have some issues in correctly determining longitude/latitude.

  • iOS6 has problems with returning high accuracy data.

  • Safari 5 & 6 seem to not provide geolocation data when using a wired connection.

  • Firefox 52 and below had a permission dialog with an additional "not now" option. This option postponed the permission decision until later and therefore deliberately did not call any callbacks, see bug
