According to http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/geolocation/, in order to revoke geolocation permission, you currently have to navigate to the site that you gave permission to, then go to Page Info->Permissions. This is counterintuitive, and makes it hard to undo permissions given when you don't remember the exact URL that requested it.

All geolocation permissions should also be accessible in Preferences->Privacy, like cookies.

Reproducible: Always
Totally agree that this is a problem, but we would like to solve a few other UI problems simultaneously as well.  Boriss is now working on the UI for this, and here is a previous proposal that I had worked on: http://people.mozilla.com/~faaborg/files/firefox4Mockups/prefPaneWebSites-i2.png
Severity: normal → S3
