Firefox 3.6.3 Radar Ani Failure - FIXED
This is a fix for anyone who lost radar image updates - for me this happened in Firefox 3.6.3 after it was working fine for months.
Browser: Firefox 3.6.3 installed over 3.0.6.
Weather Addon: Forecastbar Enhanced - version 0.9.6
Weather addon and radar animation were working perfectly.
Today Jul13-10 I noticed the Radar ani had not been updated since June 4, 2010.
I found this Addon page but no solution. I do not intend to update from Forecastbar Enhanced - version 0.9.6 at the moment.
To fix the lost ani problem:
Go to Accuweather by clicking the Radar icon.
Select Animate and set Your Location using the drop lists (NOT the zoomable map at lower right!).
Right click the animation and choose Copy Image URL to copy the image url to the clipboard.
Open the weather Addon's Options and select Radar then Custom and (I left size at size 640x480).
Paste the image URL you copied into the Custom URL field and click Apply.
The Animation drop list is grayed out but no matter.
Weather Settings will update and with the mouse over the radar icon radar animation should be working.
Is this URL stable? Not sure but it can be updated.
Be sure you are getting the URL of the animated GIF or you will only get a fixed image.
This is the URL I got for North America > Canada > Toronto:
May the Sun Be With You!
