I kind of gave up using Firefox on a regular basis.
Rebuilding it from scratch every time there was an update got to be too much work. Each time too many extensions I used ended up broken or things just got too messed up in the process of updating for Firefox to be useful any more.
I now have a copy without any extensions at all installed and I don't plan on installing very many into this copy, if any.
One of my favorites was WeatherFox which was renamed to ForcastFox
Get international weather forecasts from AccuWeather.com. Display it in any toolbar or statusbar with this highly customizable extension.
# international weather
# display temperatures in Celsius or Fahrenheit
# choose forecast area by US zip code or TWC location id
# search for location id's from within the program
# tooltips show the weather summary and forecast high and low temperatures
# open AccuWeather®'s forcast by double clicking images
# monitor the weather for one to nine days
# place the icons in any toolbar or status-bar including: the navbar, status bar, personal toolbar, or menu bar
# an alert slider pops up when the current conditions refresh from the server (you choose how often)
I would give a screenshot of what this really looks like in action but as I said...my previous install of Firefox was hosed during an update....again.
BTW...A great place to get just about any extension available for Firefox or Thunderbird is at The Extensions Mirror
. There are also some there that you can't get any place else, as some extension developers have run into hosting problems and have made this site their official download location for their work.
