The Geode Addon doesn't work.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. navigator.geolocation.lastPosition
2. undefined
Actual Results:  
navigator.geolocation.lastPosition = undefined

Expected Results:  
navigator.geolocation.lastPosition = a functional object to get the last position with.

Here's my JS:
print(navigator);
print(navigator.geolocation);
print(navigator.geolocation.lastPosition);

And here's the output:
[object Navigator]
[object Object]
undefined

All Geode examples seem to be failing me too so I'm not sure what I might be doing wrong. I suspect it might just be a bug with Geode itself.
http://azarask.in/local/ just displays:

Error getting your position. Mea Culpa!

All other examples simply fail to function at all.

I am seeing the same behaviour in MacOS X with 3.1 beta 2. This being the case is may not be a platform specific issue. If anyone with Linux gets the same problematic behaviour, we should change this to effecting all platforms.
This happens for me in Vista x64 as well:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.0.8) Gecko/2009032609 Firefox/3.0.8 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
OS: Windows XP → All
Hardware: x86 → All
This appears to be functional now, albeit with different API calls (the others listed above are incorrect or deprecated):
