Forecastfox Weather

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I just tried this version 2.0.19 and it installed perfectly on Firefox 7.01 on a Dell Windows Laptop.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.19).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Forecastfox Weather

It works on 7.01 but here's how.. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Many people have experienced trouble installing this app as Firefox updates and the app does not keep up with compatibility. What I found was that you need to use a work around.

Search the web for this file: 1-clickweather-1.1.9.2-fx.xpi

There are a number of sites that hold the file. Save it somewhere on your hard drive, then open Firefox "File" menu, "Open File" and open the downloaded file. The app will then install and work as you want. It works perfectly. If you don't see it, go to "View" "Toolbars" and make sure "add-on" toolbar is enabled. I installed this file from a user group link a few months ago and it has worked with every update of Firefox without reinstalling. I thank whoever did the hack.

Amazon Toolbar

Lack of options to turn off stuff Rated 3 out of 5 stars

If you're a big Amazon fan then you may like this, love it perhaps. I did use it when it first came out as the "Add to Wish List" feature for any website is very good. Then recently the add-on was "upgraded". Now that nifty single "Add to Wishlist" comes with a series of other additional drop down menus of stuff I don't ever use, and no options in the setting to select what you want on the tool bar. So it's an all or nothing deal. I removed the add-on as it adds clutter if I have to have 5 buttons and all I want is 1 on them. I wish developers would give the user the power to select the features you want.
