I Miss 1-click Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Bad news. Even Silverhawk's tweak doesn't work with Firefox 18. No point in downloading it unless he or somebody is able to do a fix. I miss 1-click. Not sure why Comcast-NBC-Weather Channel decided to abandon it except they now have an ad-ware app they want to push everyone towards. ForecastFox is not as good. Please bring one click back.

It's Back Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thanks to SilverHawk and his tweaks a working version of this add-on is available again. Thumbs down to The Weather Channel for not keeping this add-on up to date. Don't download from this site (the add-on won't work). Following is the link and download instructions to get the working version (note: you'll have to wait 45 seconds to start the download).

To install it:
1) Download the archive from the link above.
2) Remove the existing addon from Firefox and restart Firefox.
3) Click on File->Open and browse to where you downloaded it to.
4) Select the archive and let it install.

They say it works with FF5 Beta. It does not. Weather info will not display. And they still haven't fixed the java problem already mentioned.

Silverhawk's fix works great. If you don't trust the download sites to which links were posted, you can easily do the fix yourself. Only question is, why hasn't Weather Channel done the fix? ....

To fix this extension is very easy if you know what you're doing and not afraid to tinker a little.

Simply download a copy of the .xpi file. Open it up with any archive program such as winzip or winrar (it's basically just a zip file with the extension changed).

There will be a file in the root of the archive called install.rdf, open that up with a text editor. Line 8 of the file looks like this:
<em:version>1.1.9.1</em:version> On the next line, you want to place this: <em:unpack>true</em:unpack> This tells Firefox to unpack the archive rather then keep it in the .xpi. This was a change made by Mozilla (http://blog.mozilla.com/addons/2010/09/23/changes-to-how-extensions-are-installed-in-firefox-4/) This will fix the javascript error.

Next, change the line that says <em:maxVersion>3.7a1pre</em:maxVersion> to something else such as <em:maxVersion>4.5</em:maxVersion>. This allows the extension to work with Firefox versions up to 4.5.

Save this file back into the archive and close the archive.

Now load up Firefox 4.x, remove the existing extension (if there is one) and restart. Go to File->Open and browse to the location of our modified archive. Wait for the countdown and load it into Firefox...done.

It doesn't work since FF4. Just generates cryptic error messages. Despite the long development period for FF4, they waited to update and then didn't get it right. Now it just generates error messages. Get Forecastfox instead.

Not updated in over a year. Does not work with FF4 (any versions). I am getting same error message Gaby2300 reported. Revalation is wrong: The link at weather.com links to this page and this add-on. They have a new app that appears in the task bar so maybe they no longer support this add-on. If you want a weather add-on in your status/add-on bar, get Forecast Fox. This one is dead. Too bad. I liked it.

No updates for over a year. Does not work with Firefox 3.6 even when version check is by-passed. They need to get off it; 3.6 Release Candidate is out so it's a matter of weeks (or less) before the official release (and automatic upgrades) make this obsolete. I'm getting ready to go back to ForecastFox.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.8).

I miss 1-click weather. It was nice to have quick weather info in the Firefox status bar with quick access to the regional map, hourly and 10 day forecasts. But Firefox has been updated; 1-click weather has not. I tried changing the max version myself so it would install. It installs but won't display and freezes Firefox. Don't bother with this extension now. Come back when (if) there's a version less than one year old. If this is what we get when GE-NBC takes over the Weather Channel, I hate to image how bad it will be when Comcast takes over NBC.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.8).

The choice between 1-ClickWeather and ForecastFox seems mainly whether you'd rather get weather from The Weather Channel (1-Click) or Accuweather (ForecastFox). Otherwise, they seem pretty similar

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.6).
