Forecastfox is Dead - I'll Miss It Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Forecastfox now doesn't even sync in English. I suppose Accuweather has put all their resources into the mobile version. Will someone please hack the mobile version to make it work on the desktop? Thank you.This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Uma Alternativa para continuar utilizando / An Alternative to continue using Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Uma alternativa que consegui resolver !!!!
-Baixe o arquivo forecastfox-latest.xpi
-Descompacte em uma pasta o arquivo forecastfox-latest.xpi utilizando o 7-ZIP
- Dentro desta pasta vão conter (chrome) chrome.manifest forecast..., icon e install.
-Abra com o bloco de notas o arquivo install
-Modifique a linha <em:maxVersion>22.0 para <em:maxVersion>35.0 e salve o arquivo (assim se tornará compatível com a versão do firefox atual)
-Abra a pasta Chrome, descompacte também o arquivo forecastfox.jar em uma pasta
-Localize a pasta content/locale, faça um backup renomeando o arquivo forecastfox-en.json para forecastfox-en_bkp.json
-renomeie o arquivo referente a sua linguagem, no meu caso forecastfox-pt-BR.json para forecastfox-en.json (assim ele vai conseguir atualizar os dados mas traduzido para seu idioma)
-Para finalizar, selecione todos os arquivos extraídos do forecastfox.jar compacte ele para forecastfox.zip e renomeie para forecastfox.jar
-Após isso selecione todos os arquivos descompactados do forecastfox-lastest e compacte ele para ZIP depois renomeie para forecastfox-latest.xpi
-Pronto, os dados meteorológicos serão atualizados e alguns itens no seu idioma.

This Add-on (Version 2.2.4!) worked like a charm for many years. Also no problems with Australis. Since FF35 and FF36beta Forecastfox is broken. A workaround is possible but sooner or later Forecastfox will be dead. Unfortunately, there hasn't been a new version in years, so I guess, developement has completely stopped.
Strangely enough, there is still no good (small, simple) alternative to Forecastfox in developement. Or is there? Please recommend!
English only Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Forecastfox ONLY works with English language selected. That's a slap to the rest of the world. Shame on it.

First install: "Disable Add-on Compatibility Checks"
1. You must go to settings "Forecastfox Weather"
2. You need to enable English
3. Is Required restore the initial settings by clicking the button below
4. Customize as you wish.
Works in FF35 only then!

HOW USE FORECAST Rated 5 out of 5 stars
To use this extension FORECAST, that works correctly with Mozilla Firefox, all versions,, need to do so, namely, uninstall the current mozilla browser that you use, then look for a new version Mozilla browser between FF18- ---- FF 20. Then the Mozilla browser settings, uncheck the box to automatically update browser. Do not check nothing in this window.
Install any of these versions of Mozilla in the initial phase. Then install FORECAST version 1.4.10. Choose the settings you want ..
Then install add the "DISABLE ADD-ON CHECK COMPATIBILITY" version 1.3
Then install the add-on version 3.2 BAR THE ADDON
After these steps, you can update any version of FF-3o, 31,32,33,34,35, to any version you want. But beware, you do so manually.
Voila..work FORECAST by ALL version of FF.

Killing another popular app - just another slap in the face from Firefox to end-users and addon developers. The Firefox developers' club is an egocentric social group that utterly lacks a moral compass or common sense. "Nihilists" is perhaps the best way to describe them. Their compulsive tweaking has caused untold grief amongst the end-user community and the developers have done so defiantly and often rather rudely. They really don't care what average Firefox users think. Just ask them! The alpha-tester/developers please only themselves.

Not compatible Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Been using this addon for a while now and love it. I just upgraded my Palemoon browser to 25.1.0 (x64) and for some reason I had to reinstall the weather app. Installed OK but when I click on the settings button it freezes my whole browser. The only way out is via the task manager. I hope this gets addressed because I have come to really enjoy this addon.

Forecastfox in FF34.0x Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I love this app, used it from the get go. but fire fox keeps making this app incompatible , not the first time. I wish this would stop happening. so many apps and themes have fallen by the wayside, one theme had 300,000 users, more actually, no longer. and , as someone else noted. Mozilla wants me to give more money, again. no more. I want this app,in particular, back and fast.
Edit: hour later....I just did a search for installing this forecast fox for versions after 29 i guess. I did have to make certificate exceptions which i had done in past but forgot. I am using Windows10 tech preview and just now installing FF 34.05 or whatever is most current non beta as of 1-2-15. it works fine and added to restore add on bar on the bottom. I did also add compatibility check as suggested below. no idea if it was necessary or not.
keeping the 5star forecaster fox but not for FF34. not since 28, i think , when all the good (to me) themes and some apps fell by the wayside as noted by disgust of creators with process. hundreds of thousands of followers yet no longer compatible. It is all far too advanced for me to grasp. I am just a typical end user who gets left with less control over look of interface not that the standard new ones are bad, just not what i like.

Too annoying. Valuable extension now incompatible. And yet FF keeps asking for our $$$$. Bummer.....
added to 34.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I went nuts trying to find the right weather addon since this was disabled, forgot about compatibility addon which fixes the auto-disable. This installs itself right in the status bar ( which I restored with the addon bar addon ) and now all is well, I get my weather again
Update for using this app with new profiles, FF34 Rated 4 out of 5 stars
First of all - you're welcome, ripper.
I wanted to add that I just had to create a new profile (the old one was corrupted) and I was not able to install ForecastFox from here; FF kept telling me it wasn't compatible with v34, even with the CheckCompatibility add-on enabled. I did a search and found it somewhere else; I won't say where because it doesn't seem like a good idea to mention that here, but I will say it's on a site I've used a lot and trust. Installation does need a restart but once I did that it was back where it belongs, in the bottom toolbar. I still haven't tried to get all my settings back (cities, countries, etc.) but I'm hoping that moving the sqlite file from the old profile will take care of that.
I really wish someone would update this though; the radar map is still not timely and besides, I don't like the idea of possibly having other add-ons out-of-date (because they're not being checked). So, if anyone is doing this, I think it's a good idea to manually check for updates periodically just so you don't miss anything important.

So long old friend :( Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It is sad to see an extension that I have used over the years become abandoned. Sure there are work arounds for getting the extension to display but the inabiity to change the settings is a sore point. You are still saddled with a extension that seems to be cast adrift.
I can sympathize with the developer though as end users can become pushy at times wanting something fix ASAP even though the extension is free.
So long Forecastfox I will miss you
