  1. Can I set multiple the locations? I just got the pro version only because I thought I can get multiple locations so I could easily flip between them, but I don’t see how. Otherwise I don’t really see the benefit of the “pro” version.

  2. i really like your extension.and it really helpful.thanks for keeping such a good extensions for us.keep the struggles carry on.and i really apprieciate you and your team on this.
    regards hamayun riaz

  3. Hello Tim. Excellent Extension! Much appreciated. I have a PRO subscription for my home computer. Can I extend that to my work computer or do I have to purchase a second PRO pack?

  4. Tim,

    The large temperature icon on the bar is not visible on my screen as the Chrome extension bar is gray and the temp is displayed as white. May be you should add a setting to change the color of the number.

    Just a thought.

        1. No I don’t think it will run if the computer is sleeping. It’s using chrome background task to run. Watch it for an hour and let me know if it updates or not.

          1. Hi Tim,

            It did not update with computer sleeping. I’ll have to remember to click on it.



  5. Hi Tim,
    I really enjoy the extension and just upgraded to the Pro version. Can I use it on different browsers (same computer) without upgrading each one?

  6. ok, I reinstalled the app, it’s a cool extension especially living in Canada is handy to have the weather on the top of my computer screen. but I am still haveing the same problem with it. my google background is a dark one and so the border is black, and the weather numbers are also black on this app, so I run into the problem where I can’t see the temperature at the top of my screen, it would be greate if you could change the colour of the number so that I would be able to see it.

  7. Hello Tim, I still can not find how to come into the by you called “extensions FAQ” for changing Fahrenheit to Celcius, as I asked you to already bij mail/.

  8. It apparently thinks that I live in Dallas, I do not. I have an office in Seattle, but work hundreds of miles from there. I would like to be able to have both Seattle and my home in the system, but it does not give me the option to change from Dallas. I really only need just the two cities… I understand that the pro would give me more, but honestly it is overkill for my needs if I could change the default Dallas option.


      1. I understand that I can reorder them. That is not the issue. The issue is that it will not let me change Dallas to any other city. It will not let me remove Dallas. It will not let me add a third city without the upgrade.

        I get my position, it’s a free a extension; beggars and choosers and all that. I am not complaining so much as making sure I understand the limitations of the free version. Overall I think this is a really nice extension. I may yet buy the pro version. Thank you for developing this.


  9. Hey Tim, really like the extension. Any chance of being able to save a default radar map? Also, do you have plans to add animation option to the radar map?

    1. Thanks Zach! Currently the radar is coming from darksky and I’m limited on the options I’m able to set. I’ll see what I can do. Currently they do not support animations for the radar.

  10. Can’t seem to access the Radar feature. I click on the radar dish icon and a blank window appears. Tried some of the radar settings but that doesn’t seem to do or change anything. That’s one of the features I loved with ForecastFox which is no longer compatible with FF53. Easy one click access to a local radar gif from the Status Bar. Any suggestions, try uninstalling and reinstalling maybe?

    1. Hmm are you using the Firefox version of weather? Seems to be working for me. I’ll do some more testing to see if there is an issue.

  11. I use your app daily and like it, but there is one improvement that I would really like to see: I’d like both the icons and the text to indicate when thunderstorms are predicted. That way, I’d be able to see when I should unplug expensive, sensitive electronic equipment when I leave the house for the day. (Merely knowing that rain is forecast doesn’t tell me this information.) Thanks.

    1. Thanks Lynn! If you’re talking about the temperature icon in the toolbar, you can try turning off the Large Temperature Badge setting. Let me know if that works for you.
