I need to modify the default settings on the permissions tab in firefox. when you go to tools>page info>permissions, I need the share location to default to allow rather than "always ask" and block. I need to be able to implement this modification in several installs of the browser.

The only way to Force it to Never Ask is to Turn geo.enabled OFF, or I imagine you could build your own Firefox build that would allow you to overwrite the privacy settings of the browser, however Mozilla has set this as part of it's commitment to Privacy to Always Ask.
Their Privacy policies are here, but it is open source.

That is exactly what I would like to do. I am asking how to modify the defaults on that screen to read as indicated. Is there a way to do this? Is always ask set in stone??

Gave the facts on the setting, but didnt really answer the question.

'I suppose you could do a custom build' Well that's what I want to do, but didnt receive any help to that end. Nevertheless, I am grateful for the assistance.

Sorry, Mr Wrong, I don't know how to Build or Code the Firefox program.  To actually build it, you should look through these pages for info,
https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Build_Documentation
Any current builds that are on the web are set to Always Ask, as noted above. It's a Privacy consideration that Mozilla feels is very important for the end user.

No worries, good sir. you answered the question, and helped me realize that I didnt need to do that anyway. You earned the points, and maybe saved me a lot of work.
