Forecastfox Weather

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

New version:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/forecastfox-fix-version/

History of Forecastfox:

This current add-on page you are reading is for "Forecastfox Weather", and it is actually the 2nd version, a fork of the original, which was simply called "Forecastfox", and it was abandoned many years ago.

Rather than contact the original author, Ensolis created Forecastfox Weather. Support was great for a while, but it too has become abandoned, several years ago now.

Rather than coordinate with Ensolis, the developer "Oleksandr" has taken and made yet another fork of this project and called it "Forecastfox (fix version)". Confusing, and annoying to have multiple forks, similarly named, 2 out of 3 defunct. I know. But Oleksandr has done an excellent job, and also has a version available for Chrome browsers.

The only problem now, is that Mozilla has gotten rid of the add-on bar, and gotten rid of XUL, so that the add-on bar can not ever be restored by add-ons in the future. Instead of a row of 9 icons showing me all weather conditions day and night for next 3 days, current weather, emergency alert and current radar, now I will only see one icon, stuck on the navigation bar, cluttering up my browsing, and located in a visually and hand straining area.
