I have figured what the problem is. I don't need any more input

Open Tools in Firefox, click on Options, toward the bottom of the page you will find System Defaults, click on Check Now.

What you're suggesting only makes my preferred browser Firefox, which I already did a long time ago.

I found out that the problem is that the WeatherBug app isn't functional with the newest release of Firefox. Because of this, the WeatherBug app chooses IE because that browser is compatible.

I'll have to wait until the app itself is updated and compatible with Firefox 4.0.1

Firefox has an extension for Weather Bug.

Weather Firefox Extension from WeatherBug.com

Like I said, that extension isn't compatible with the latest release of Firefox.

That link is for Firefox 4.0 which is listed as the most current version.

Enjoy la la land... :thumbup2:

Install this add-on: https://addons.mozil...kcompatibility/ (Disable Add-on Compatibility Checks)and try WeatherBug again.

It worked for other extensions, but not the WeatherBug :(

I'm sure it won't be long before another version of the bug is released

Are you using Firefox version 4.0.1? They just released, last week I think. That weather app doesn't work either.

I want my weather bug :(
