This happens at least with Facebook and today also happened with website (www.st1.fi) that requires location / positioning information.

When I open the browser and try to either share my location or allow web page to use my location, I seem to be somewhere else. That typically is the place where I have been maybe few days back, but might be few hundred kilometers off the actual location. Notably at least in current case phone does not even try to get GPS fix.

It's not a duplicate imo. I've had problems with the location not updating in the browser (Facebook also) well before it started to crash. Edit: Problem exists in both native browser and Android Firefox.

I don't think this is a duplicate. I didn't see browser crash but only that it thinks I am some old location.
