Seems it has stalled on Tuesday, at least for me.(it's now Thursday as of this posting).

There seems to be many others experiencing this. Seems to be the same across different browsers and operating system. Most likely as a result of changes at accuweather.

 

Anybody have any thoughts on how to fix this...??

 

Thanks.

It's not available for recent versions of Firefox.

Thanks, but

a) I already knew that,

b ) it was working fine anyway until just the other day, and finally

c) even older versions of FF display the same issue.

I have followed the discussions at the official forum and at the mozilla addons site here https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/forecastfox-weather/?src=search and I'm going to abandon this addon.  The author isn't supporting it and the weather channel seems to have no interest in taking over.

 

Try AniWeather

Well, this is weird. I installed aniweather, couldn't get it to reside in the top toolbar, like forecastfox, so I disabled it.

 

Re-enabled forecastfox, and now it seems to be working...

 

Curioser and curioser...

Update: I was able to get ani working in the menu bar, where I wanted it. Seems it only goes there when I choose menu bar-far right. Dunno why. At any rate, I was able to manually move it to center... and I'm happy again.

Nice!

 

Ani wasn't working very well for me.  The popup showed up at strange times but not when I wanted it.
