Manually updated using linked file in other comment - PLEASE UPDATE OFFICIAL VERSION... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Shame TWC doesn't seem to want to update. One star to The Weather Channel, and/or the original author(s) for slacking. 5 stars to the add on itself, and to Silverhawk, for linking an updated file which installs correctly.
The modified .xpi file at the link below works fine. Probably just a quick re-package that modifies a single line of text which says "I can work with Firefox version 'x.123", haven't checked. Easier just to download, for now. Might get the time to experiment some day. It's a pretty easy edit of one text file, and then zipping the file, renaming to '.xpi' extension.
Thanks "Silverhawk" - so dumb that this add on hasn't been "officially" updated. Glad you took the initiative and posted a link.
Now, what would it take for this to simply be "official" so that others can seamlessly update??? If TWC is too lazy to modify ONE LINE OF TEXT, it's really just pathetic.
I used the file linked here, thanks to Silverhawk, and had no problem - http://www.megaupload.com/?d=TCUGTUXT
Simply dragged/dropped the .xpi file into Firefox, restarted, and set my settings. Worked just fine.
Thanks again, Silverhawk Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Those five stars ARE for you, because you have taken on a thankless task to keep alive an addon its creators have abandoned.This user has 3 previous reviews of this add-on.
Update Instructions & Thanks Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thanks for the update, Silverhawk.
I suggest adding "From the Firefox menu..." to the beginning of step 3 of your install instructions. For those of us accustomed to working with files from the windows file explorer, you can't just right click on the file and choose open - it doesn't work; nor does clicking on the downloaded file in the downloads list in Firefox.
Works fine, and thanks again.
thanks we owe you Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Current Forecast Not Updating Rated 4 out of 5 stars
One of my favorite add-ons. Thanks for keeping this alive. I have one issue that's popped up lately. The current conditions refuses to update for me. It's constantly showing me the conditions from about a week ago. I installed the latest version from your web page today and still have the problem. I'm on Firefox 8.0. Any help or insight would be appreciated.
this app needs some support Rated 1 out of 5 stars

You have GOT to update this tool! Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Yes, I know. There are multi-thousands of addons and tools out there. Maybe Firefox can't be responsible for alerting people when an addon will not be compatible with an update to FF.
WHY do so many people shy away from browser updates? THIS is a good place to start. Might Weather Channel bother to send out a notice of some sort? You alert me to storms here, although not always accurate. So, why can't you alert when the addon is about to go dead because Firefox is putting on a huge push to upgrade?
I happen to love this tool. It probably is my most-used Firefox tool. Until 3 days ago when I upgraded to FF 8, and all hell broke loose. Your weather tool is gone from the top main menu bar. And it has taken 3 days to even find this page, to find out what has gone on.
It is obvious that if you are going to CREATE a tool for a browser, that you would stay on top of upcoming browser changes... and UPDATE the thing so it doesn't make people crazy.
You never know when a "freebie customer" will become a "paying customer." Right now? I am SO unimpressed with TWC. Almost as much as with Firefox... with this lousy upgrade that literally rocked my world. If it weren't for the fact that so many sites, from PayPal to my bank all of a sudden informed me on main pages that my browser was out of date and probably a security risk, I would NOT have upgraded to FF8. It's a mess.
When will this tool be updated, TWC??
Leanne in AZ where weather changes by the nano-second.
ps. ONE star becsuse of no update. Otherwise, 5-star

Greatly disappointed Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Horrid. Doesn't work with 8.0. Switched to Accu-weather via Forecastfox. Too bad; I would have preferred to stay with the Weather.com add-on.
No worky or 8.0 Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This add-on does not work with Firefox 8.0 period!! and I am not going to trouble shoot it for you.

Problem with weather updates Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Thank you silverhawk for the Firefox >3.x fix!
One problem i'm having, though, the weather's not updating properly. On one of my computers, it only updates when i restart Firefox. And on another, it hasn't updated since i've installed the fix...
Doesn't work Rated 2 out of 5 stars
The add-on page says it works through FF8, but I get all sorts of error messages in FF7.0.1. Is something wrong with my setup?
