Public bug reported:

Official build of Firefox 49 in 16.04 is not working with Google
Geolocation API while Mozilla builds are able to fetch location
information. Changing geo.wifi.uri from default
https://www.googleapis.com/geolocation/v1/geolocate?key=%GOOGLE_API_KEY%
to
https://location.services.mozilla.com/v1/geolocate?key=%MOZILLA_API_KEY%
will fix this problem.

I believe problem is with %GOOGLE_API_KEY%
