This version of FoxClocks starts up faster, fixes a number of bugs, and adds support for Opera and Microsoft Edge (note that we haven't released FoxClocks on these platforms yet). We've also updated the time zone database.
Internally FoxClocks now uses secure (https) URLs wherever possible - maps.google.com and foxclocks.org, but not api.geonames.org, which is used for search functionality, but doesn't support secure communication. Bug fixes:
Fix clocks not being created in statusbar for some slow-loading web-pages
Pick up global time format change instantly, not waiting till next clock tick
Handle body element not existing when calculating where to put time zone details popup
We've also made some boring internal technical changes including switching the entire codebase to ES6/ES0215 (including hooks for modules as soon as there is full browser support). We've also removed support for legacy Mozilla extension settings.
improved the FoxClocks Popup window (opens when you click the FoxClocks icon to the right of the address bar). You can now search for, add, move and delete clocks directly in the Popup, without needing to open the Options window
Improved the Options window: you can now delete clocks just by hovering over them and clicking the red 'delete' icon. We've also made some minor aesthetic improvements
fixed the Zone Picker and time zone search results, which were showing as English in non-English environments
fixed some compatibility issues between the FoxClocks statusbar and some web pages
We've also made some boring internal technical changes such as migrating from jQuery Deferreds to ES6 Promises and logging most console messages at 'debug' level
Welcome to the new FoxClocks, nothing like the old FoxClocks!
This incarnation is the same as FoxClocks for Google Chrome, which you can find here.
With Firefox Quantum, 'legacy' extensions such as the original FoxClocks no longer run, and new-style extensions are much more limited in their ability to modify the browser; they can't, for example, create or add to a statusbar or toolbar. We've added a simulated FoxClocks statusbar, but are aware that it can occasionally interfere with web pages - you can close the statusbar on any page, or disable it entirely from the options.
