Zomick's Bakery, the home of the Zomick's Bread / Zomick's Challah has been a proud user and supporter of the Forecastbar Enhanced addon in the past. It seems that there are no good addons of this category, cause there are a ton of other ones full with memory leaks, spyware codes embedded in them and whatever not...
This bakery did really trust this addon and truly believes that if Forecastbar returns in the newer versions of Firefox that will be great. It will be a great sign for a positive, more competitive weather addons and bad times for the competition.
Nonetheless this plugin had all the potential it needed, it was intuitive, the weather information was accurate as a laser pointer, and on top of all this it was free. Nowadays the market is being dominated by Accuweather, whose service is more and more implemented in many weather-location services. They seem to make the competition look inferior in comparison, but I believe that Forecast Enhanced had the same quality, if not qualities.
So this review is more a begging for a return, rather than a classical review. If anyone hears, reads or sees this, please write back about your future plans, or future "no"-plans.
Thank you in advance

I have a question for you.
I really like this add-on for me and it is not very helpful. Therefore, a long time I was an old section in mozilla, but need for new plugins to put the latest version.
When do you intend to create a compatible version of Forecastbar Enhanced 0.9.6 new series mozlila?
Sincerely, Svetla Sineva
How can we get this to work once again?
All other weather add-ons are scum on the bottom of FE's boot. Please rise again FE! RISE!
@BDProductions while this works for other addons, it does not work for FF v9.0.1 ...unfortunate, too ...was the best weather addon
Why isn't it posted in the author's article?
Right click the download button and select to save as.
Unzip the .XPI file.
Edit the Install.rdf file with WORDPAD.
Edit the line about firefox MAXVERSION to a number like 11 or 12, and save it back to the location you extracted the files from.
RE-Zip all of the files back into one zip file and change the .ZIP extension to .XPI .
Install and Enjoy!
(If you need more help doing this, GOOGLE "how to edit install.rdf" without the quotes.)
I miss Forecastbar Enhanced. It was hands down the best weather bar out there. Forecastfox does not update the radar properly, and I'm getting tired of fighting it. Aniweather doesn't even come close. Please make Forecastbar Enhanced compatible with Firefox 8!
I've used and loved this addon for years, but it never got updated beyond Fx 3.6. Now that I'm using Fx 7.x I found a virtually identical addon called Forecastfox Weather.
This was quite simply, the very best weather app ever created for Firefox. What happened to the development team? We're on version 6 now.
If you guys need to ask for a dollar donation, do it. I'd gladly give you 5. Its the first add on I install on every new installation of fox.
If its over, well, damn that was a good run. You had me for about 6 years! Great job boys.
I love this addon. It works perfect for me.
Small, unobtrusive, customizable. Does everything I need it to do.
I really like that you can have a custom size (1200x900 pixels is what I use) radar map show up just by hovering your mouse over the radar icon.
I do not like Forecastfox, so I will stay with this for now. Any chance of an update for FF4 or FF5?
Just 2 b clear. 4&go.
Could you do a FF 5.0 update please? Thanks :-)
Please make this work for FF5, i want to try it!
This has to be the best weather extension. Too bad it is not compatible with Firefox 4 & 5.
It's a fantastic extension. Please, please, please, get this working for FF4. I can't stand the regular Forecastfox.. soooo uncustomizable, rather kloogy, and I can't get my radar/satellite combo.
I love this extension.Please, adopt it to FF 4.0 as soon as possible.
I will not upgrade to FF4 until Forecastbar Enhanced is compatible!! I love this app, have it on my home and work PCs, and NOTHING else can top it or take its place! PLEASE, please hurry up! :)
A must have extension.
If I go to 4.0 I lose this extension that has always worked AND I lose the status bar, where I keep the Forecastbar and other icons. If I didn't like the clutter of the statusbar, I would hide it until mouseover by using the stylish style, "statusbar: mouseover for cluttter". Wait a minute... I do use that style. How hard is that. Now with 4.0 no statusbar and while Status-for-evar has come to the rescue, it simply is not enough.
Best ever, (for me) the reason for not updating FF anymore.
You can't code FF4 version... ok then, I won't update ;) for now.
And when I update at the end I will be sorry for not being able to use this fine extension.
not work 4.0.1????
Have loved this addon and it's one of the reasons I've not yet upgraded to FF 4.0. However, now the radar has stopped working on this install.
ETA on a v.4x compatible version?
Please maintain this addon. It's still the best one, the best icons, it's fully customizable (a definitive MUST!), lots of options, the satellite map is absolutely handy. I still do not use Firefox 4.0 and one of the motives is - waitng for compatibility. Highly reccomended.
Please get this working with FF4...I miss it!
Not sure if this will ever get update for Firefox 4. I found another addon that doesn't pretty much everything this one did.
Please update this for FF4 so I can upgrade!!@#! lolol
