Description Steve Block 2010-08-13 01:36:57 PDT
Currently, pages that use Geolocation are explicitly prevented from entering the page cache.

When a page enters the page cache, the Frame object is disconnected from the DOMWindow and other objects. In order for Geolocation to work with the page cache, we need to reconnect the Frame to the Geolocation object once the page is restored from the page cache. This will likely require refactoring of Geolocation.

Refactoring is currently blocked by the need to unify all platforms to use a single Geolocation implementation. See Bug 40373.
