Thank you very much, this is the best weather extension. =D>
One suggestion, please make the background badge temperature in black or dark gray color for a better view. :)

you really like the new Forecastfox?
Do you think users will swear because of the removal of the weather-statusbar?

Is possible view that the uBlock Origin badge is much better on eyes.
There is a way for make not transparent the badge?

Just tested this on Nightly. Looking pretty good. I live in Indiana, USA and when I set the local zip-code 46184 the radar image still shows default setting for 'CT - Connecticut'.

In other words - the radar is not changing when you change location of the forecast.

Also is it possible to display a larger image for the radar like the old one does ?

Thanks, clicking on radar-image does indeed enlarge the image.

Looks like the radar is now showing proper location for me, perhaps closing / restarting the browser updated it properly. I'm only testing this at the moment in a temp-profile.

Thanks again for your work, looking good !

Hey pag, I have the same problem - NoScript appears to interfere with ForecastFox options: The web page is there, but none of the dynamic content works; the selected options (the blue squares) do not appear, the location drop-down is empty, etc. I run Firefox 45.7.0. I proceeded disabling addOns (I have about 50 active ones!) and discovered that disabling NoScript fixed it. HOWEVER, I then exported my NoScript configuration (ALL the options) and imported them into a fresh profile with only NoScript and ForecastFox, and the ForecastFox options worked just fine! So I guess it could be interaction between TWO AddOns (one being NoScript) and ForecastFox. NoScript does NOT filter Chrome:// pages, they are whitelisted. I cannot tell yet what is broken. I think I even tried to RESET the NoScript options back to defaults on the broken profile and it did not fix the ForecastFox options (I will try again later and report back). I am at a loss as to what is happening :-(

Thanks.
Best Regards,

B00ze, do not worry, the new version (for WebExtensions, FF min 51.0) does not conflict with NoScript

Hi pag77,

I am curious, I've noticed a couple times while browsing lately that a new tab has been opening randomly in Firefox and goes to the install page for Multi Web Search plugin that is also developed by you. Is this just a coincidence or is Forecastfox (fix version) causing this request to be sent and opening a new page? I'm hoping it isn't being launched by Forecastfox because I'm not a fan of extensions having 'features' beyond what there intended purpose is.

My installed version of Forecastfox (fix version) is 2.4.8 running on Firefox 51.0.1

Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.

theshipwreckjested, forecastfox should open the page "changes", if there are new changes
opening MultiSearch site - apparently it's some kind of mistake.
I will definitely check it out.
sorry for the inconvenience

Love this addon, but would like to see things like Wind Chill and Heat Index included in the information to be displayed. As someone with asthma this is quite valuable information.

Hi Pag77,

Thanks for looking into what is causing the MultiSearch extension from opening.

One other question, it seems like the chrome version now needs to be able to Read and change all data on all websites I visit. Curious why this permission set is needed now. Can you explain the changes you made to the extension that require more permissions?

Thanks!
