Timezone database issue Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Great extension, but since I upgraded to Firefox 40.0.3 I have been unable to update the timezone database for two days now. All I get is, "Error - try again later". This has been an issue since FoxClocks updated to version 4.0.2. UPDATE as of 0300hrs on 09/02/15: I reverted back to version 18.104.22.168-signed and everything worked fine including letting me update to the latest timezone database which is 2015e released on 6/13/15. However, when I updated FoxClocks to version 4.0.2 it goes back to timezone database 2015d released on 4/24/15 and will not let me update to 2015e. I believe there is some bad code in ver 4.0.2.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.0.2).

FoxClocks with add-on works as expected! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I just installed the add-on proposed by Andy, the developer.
It worked. Before that I was struggling to see the clocks, as the logo seemed to appear in and disappear from the Menu bar.
And even if it was there one had to click on it.
The new add-on bar may on occasion obscure the bottom of the page, but that is a very small price to pay.
I hope the FF developers see the problem they have caused by removing the add-on bar, and think about restoring it. One could always remove it if it was in the way.
Loved this add-on - when it worked! Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This used to be an awesome add-on!!
I was able to keep track of time from my Facebook friends' locations - I had 4 different clocks on my toolbar at once!
Now, with all the new FF updates, I can't figure out how to make this work!
It was a real challenge to configure "Classic Theme Restorer" with "Colorful Tabs" to make them work - but I'm at a loss with this!
PLEASE tell me how to configure FoxClocks to work!
I'm ONLY giving this 1 star - to get the attention of the developer!
Otherwise - 5 stars for when it worked!!
Sorry you're having problems. Mozilla has made a number of changes to Firefox which make extension developers' lives more difficult. Most recently they've done away with the Add-on bar/statusbar. You can restore it by installing the Status-4-Evar extension from here:
Hope that helps!

Please kindly update Time Zone database. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love FoxClocks - And how to move it back to the bottom! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
After using the great info from Joe Siegler (dated Aug 1, 2014) to get FoxClocks to show up in the new version of Firefox, I was able to move FoxClocks back to the bottom thanks to Mozilla's help directing me to an add-on specifically designed to restore the add-on bar at the bottom. It can be found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/what-happened-to-the-add-on-bar
Now everything is back the way I like it :-)
Fixing Foxclocks for FF31 Rated 4 out of 5 stars
How do I get the clocks to show at the bottom of the browser window? I preferred it lower and to the right of the browser. I was in customize but couldn't figure out how to move it.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (184.108.40.206-signed).
Fixing Foxclocks for FF31 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
1) Turn on Menu Bar - Right click in header and turn it on if it's not already on. If you don't see option to do so, you're not clicking in the right place.
2) From Menu Bar, select "View | Toolbars | Bookmarks Bar"
3) From Config option all the way to the right of address bar (looks like three horizontal lines), select "Customize"
4) You should see a Fox clocks icon there. Drag it to where it says "Bookmarks Toolbar Items".
5) Hit "Exit Customize". This will leave you with just an icon there.
6) Right click on the Foxclocks icon (globe), and pick options.
7) Change the option that says "Display in" from Status Bar to "A Toolbar".
8) Make sure "Display as" shows as "Multiple Clocks".
9) Hit OK, and you should see your clocks back.
10) Go back to Item 1 and turn off "Menu Bar" if you want.
This does interfere with the space used for Bookmarks in the Bookmarks bar, so if you were using a lot of clocks and a lot of bookmarks, you'll have a space issue in here now, but this will restore the clocks to permanent view.

How to make it work with FF29.0 Rated 4 out of 5 stars
...for those of you havin' trouble with FF29.0 and FoxClocks, d/load Classic Theme Restorer (it brings back the addon bar) and it will work just fine...it did for me :)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (22.214.171.124-signed).
Foxclocks and FF29 OOPS??? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Foxclocks is not working on FF29 again! I do not have the option under VIEW/TOOLBARS to add the new toolbar.
Its driving me crazy as I use Foxclocks all the time to know what time it is in various locations I communicate with!!

Keep crashing, please fix it.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (126.96.36.199-signed).
stopped working Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Updated to FF 29.0 Beta and it stopped working.
In Foxclocks 'tools' - 'options' I ticked the 'ststus bar option, meaning under 'view' I had to go to 'toolbars' - 'add-on bar'. Working fine now
Strange behaviour... now the possibility to add status bar has vanished, it was there yesterday.
The problem is now fixed, thanks!
FF 29 no longer supports the 'Add-on' bar. I'm investigating alternatives.
can not update time zone database ? Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I'm trying to update the time zone database in the option window, But the result is "Error -- try again later", even though my internet connection is perfectly fine. I'm now stuck on last year's daylight saving on/off control, and hence my clock is off by 1 hr.
Anybody else have the same problem ? And fix ?
Sorry you're having problems. The first thing to do is make sure you're running the latest version of FoxClocks, which is currently 3.3.26. That should address the error message. If you're still having problems, have a look at
Hope that helps. Regards,

Exactly what I was looking for! Simple and effective clock with time zone in status bar, love it! Thank you!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52-signed).
Now it won't even remember my settings IN THE MIDDLE of a session Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I have long had the issue of settings in Foxclocks not being saved even on a normal exit (not a crash), which the http://foxclocks.org/faq#settingsnotsaved URL doesn't really help with anyway other than to explain WHY it's happening, but now it's also happening in the middle of a perfectly good session!
Not ten minutes ago I had to reset Foxclocks to my preferred settings...and now I just glanced down at the menu bar after surfing a few pages...and we're back to UK/Pacific Time/Hong Kong for some reason!
This is an indispensible add-on, so unless I can find something similar, I can't just get rid of it, but this is really getting annoying.
