A slightly annoying bug with location in the browser : whenever I try to get my location in the browser, I usually get the location where I was a few hours or a few days before... Strangely enough, this location seems to be really random : it is not necessarily somewhere I used GPS.

it happens on most websites (at least on m.untappd.com and mobile.meteofrance.com), but not all (it seems m.here.com is not affected). Moreover when using another browser (Firefox for Android), it works like a charm.

I tried cleaning the browser cache and reboot, my location is still an old one, until without apparent reason, it updates itself.

edit: Bug is still here with last update (1.1.1.27)

edit 2: Still no fix as of today (1.1.7.25)

Happens on Facebook too. When I want to "check in" I see locations in a city I was in over a month ago... :/
