Browser should have a setting to turn off geolocation. And/or have possibility to allow/disallow geolocation for each site.

Now sites that ask for geolocation permission does that on every page load. For example http://dawn.fi/.

Workaround: I was able to disable disable geolocation with user.js file as adviced in this comment. Setting was set using this line

user_pref("geo.enabled", false);

This was doable with the TinyEdit-editor from the Store.

Using about:config from the browser let me to this problem: browser-accessing-the-aboutconfig-stucks-at-the-warranty-void-page. And apparently about:config isn't editable anyways.
