Stop browser asking for your location

If you're concerned about it or all you do most of the time is blocking the access, it can be disabled by default so you don't get annoyed anymore.  

As a consequence, websites won't be available to access your location but most of them provide alternative input fields to manually enter the address/postcode(if not, they should) so you're not going to lose much functionality by blocking the access by default.
