GeoFlag is a port of Flagfox for Pale Moon. This extension was originally written by David Garrett.
GeoFlag displays a flag icon indicating the current webserver's physical location. Knowing where you're connected to adds an extra layer of awareness to your browsing and can be useful to indicate the native languages and legal jurisdictions that may apply. Additional information can be obtained via a multitude of external lookups and users can add their own custom actions. All actions can be added to the flag icon's context menu and set to icon click or keyboard shortcuts for quick access.
Clicking the flag icon opens a detailed map showing the city the server is in and other useful information such as its local time. Many other actions are available for a wide range of uses such as:
• Site safety and malware checks
• Finding similar sites and reviews
• Automatic translation to your language
• SEO and web development research
• Diagnostics like pings and traceroutes
• Whois and DNS information
• Page code validation
• Quick URL shortening
• Copying a server's IP address or other info
• or you can create your own custom actions!
GeoFlag is simple, unobtrusive, and uses relatively little resources. In order to protect your privacy, country lookups are done locally rather than asking an external server about every page you browse to. It works by accessing an internal IP address location database, basically a rough map of the physical layout of the Internet, based on data provided by Maxmind. This gives a flag for the nationality of the actual location of the server you're connected to, rather than just the nationality of the domain name which may be different.
GeoFlag includes a couple additional improvements to the original Flagfox extension, including secure automatic database updates, and the use of the Unicode/Emoji flag set instead of images, cutting the extension's file size in half.
GeoFlag is free for use or modification without limitation. It is released under the Flagfox License with no warranty or guarantee of any kind. That being said, you can still ask any questions in the Comments section below, or contact me directly for assistance.

 Would you consider the option to display the flag in the status bar instead of address bar?

 Added a toolbar entry feature. Update to v5.4 and a flag item will be added to the Customize Toolbar dialog. Just customize your toolbars, find the flag in the list, and drag it to whichever bar you want it. The URL bar flag will automatically be hidden when you finish customizing.

 Will you also consider adding support for Basilisk? Edited the install.rdf file to add the relevant em:targetApplication entry for the browser, and after some brief tests I haven't seen anything errorful.
Thanks in advance!
