Tested on Nightly builds with Geeksphone Peak with /system/b2g/defaults/pref/user.js defaults and Geeksphone suggested GPS response improvement https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=908151#c19 While approving GPS Share permissions (enabling also in System settings) and testing Geolocation in whatever app, it does not show up the GPS Share icon on System top status bar (icon like can see in http://firefoxadvices.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/EverNav-App.png) and does not return any GPS respond - http://html5demos.com/geo "checking..." will hang for forever.
I can confirm this. GPS used to work reasonably well (but still a bit slow) for me after implementing the fix mentioned in bug #908151 but since a week or so ago it no longer works at all. No matter how long I wait, even ten minutes, my Geeksphone Peak just doesn't get a fix. I was going to post a new topic about this on the Geeksphone forum, but Binyamin already beat me to it with this bug report. Glad to hear I'm not the only one affected. I'll post to the Geeksphone forum anyway to direct other victims towards this bugreport.
I posted a topic here: To provide more info at Geeksphone's request, I'm running Boot2Gecko 126.96.36.199-hd-GP. Before GPS stopped working I hadn't downloaded any updates which could have overwritten the settings in the user.js file. I just downloaded that file from my Peak again to verify it has the correct settings. It still has the same: pref("geo.gps.supl_server", "test.supl.svc.ovi.com"); pref("geo.gps.supl_port", 7276); Should any more info be necessary I'll gladly provide it.

This is what i suspect :( Nokia has closed this supl server (or at least the port). You can try with: supl.nokia.com:7275 supl.google.com:7275 test.supl.svc.ovi.com:7275

It does not work either. GPS not responding on Peak device, Firefox OS, Nightly images.
Please, dont test with nightly images, they may have bugs and can broke the tests.

Please could you take a log with logcat so we can see if there is any problem?

Thank you so much for your help Alex! I tried you solution just now and I can report it works for me to, my Peak gets a GPS fix within a second or two.
Alex, I tried your suggestion and it did not fix anything. Still the same infinite Waiting... status.

GPS failed also to others https://twitter.com/oxodesign/status/428092735523151872
The fix from Alex works for me on Geeksphone Peek with 1.3 (build-ID: 20140128101127). Only problem is that the GPS signal is very bad at my home so I only can test it if I am outside...
Of course you should be outdoors, because GPS doesn't work inside buildings or works incorrect (http://science.opposingviews.com/doesnt-gps-work-inside-building-18659.html) But, it is said that nokia supl server (supl.nokia.com) provides a way to get your coordinates indoors (http://developer.nokia.com/community/discussion/showthread.php/172039-Location-Api-without-GPS). But i didn't try it and i'm not sure that it works on Geeksphone.
You'll also need to create a cert for the google SUPL server : http://blog.cryptomilk.org/2012/07/24/how-to-create-a-suplrootcert-for-supl-google-com/
Alex, I think you might need : QUIPC_ENABLED = 1 in the /etc/gps.conf in order for indoor positioning to work? I could be wrong. Having said that I'm not sure that will work because you also need to configure the QUIPC if it's capable... quipc.conf
With yesterdays Nightly image update, GPS/Geolocation seems now working. The GPS connection still is very slow (waiting for about 5 minutes), accuracy of 500 - 50 meters, but it at least has some respond.
May have had to do with : https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=955906 Binyamin, also see : https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=965191#c6 In any cases, can we close this now, Binyamin, since it's working for you?

Closing this bug. Still we have to improve the response time and GPS accuracy.
GPS still does not work on any Geeksphone device, Keon, Peak or Revolution.
Its working on peak with nightly, not working on 1.3.
