Version 3.1.26 753.7 kB Works with Firefox 10.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.7 and later, Thunderbird 10.0 and later

This is a bug-fix release only.

In rare cases, FoxClocks can issue large numbers of automatic database update checks in rapid succession. This makes the foxclocks.org's hosting company, Site5, understandably very unhappy. Site5 have been remarkably patient while we've worked to address this bug - thanks guys.

Bug fixes

Version 3.1.25 763.9 kB Works with Firefox 10.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.7 and later, Thunderbird 10.0 and later

This version fixes FoxClocks failing to run in SeaMonkey - apologies!

We've taken this opportunity to add a few enhancements and fix a few bugs - including an unfortunate flag bug.

What's new
  • We've completely revised the Zone Picker, which should be much easier to navigate. This change is English-only right now - contact us if you'd like to help with translations
  • Start-up is now even faster - FoxClocks will never impact your browser's performance
  • FoxClocks now supports the world's newest country, South Sudan; and we've updated the flag of Libya

Bug fixes

  • Fixed some country flags incorrect

Version 3.0.6 753.7 kB Works with Firefox 10.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.7 and later, Thunderbird 10.0 and later

With a new-format time zone database, a new website, a few new features and a major internal (and hopefully invisible) re-org, FoxClocks reaches version 3.0. We hope you like it.

There's also a new new version for Google Chrome. Disclaimer - the Chrome version costs a couple of dollars.

What's new
  • There's a new-format time zone database, able to handle unusual situations such as Morocco having two periods of daylight saving this year.
  • We've launched a new website, foxclocks.org, to host FoxClocks help and the time zone database update server.
  • The FoxClocks time zone database has been updated to version 2012e, for those with automatic database updates disabled. See here for way too much information!
  • There's a new 'week number' custom format, available in ISO (European) and North American flavours. See here for more information about custom formats and the Options window. (Currently week number is only available in English, French, German and Spanish.)
  • Also in the Options window, custom format codes (e.g. <d-l> for long-form day of the week) are now easier to find.
  • The Location Properties window now shows current or future daylight saving periods, rather than just for the current year.
  • Internally FoxClocks now uses JavaScript 'modules' rather than 'components'. Hopefully this means it should use less of your browser's precious resources.
  • There's an enhanced Swedish translation, especially the Zone Picker - thanks to Mikael Hiort af Ornäs!
  • We've removed support for older versions of Firefox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey.

Bug fixes
  • Fixed repeated 'Thanks for installing/updating' message - apologies!
  • [Mac only] Fixed broken database alert breaking automatic database updates.
