I can't get any of the settings to do anything. Noscript and uBO already automatically show disabled for the page, but CS Lite shows blocking cookies. Do you have to allow cookies for the chrome page somehow?

In some cases, you have to disable NoScript in the add-ons manager to get the Forecast Fox settings to stick.

1. Disable NoScript
2. Restart FX
3. Set up Forecast Fox
4. Re-enable Noscript
5. Restart FX
Win7 Pro SP1 64 Bit
Comodo Internet Security
Pale Moon 28.2.2, Firefox 52.9.0esr, SeaMonkey 2.48, FossaMail 38.9.4 and Thunderbird 52.9.1

Thanks. That's a big hassle. I assume people have looked into other, quicker workarounds, correct?

You're welcome. I haven't heard of any other workaround. NoScript is a good add-on, but sometimes it can be a pain.

I am experiencing some startup issues with ForecastFox 4.11 and FF-ESR-52.4
At startup, after FF starts, Forecastfox is on toolbar with blue umbrella icon.
At this time FF responds to user commands.
Then follows an interval of 2-5 seconds of total hang
Afterwards, Forecastfox icon changes to current weather info and FF resumes respoding.

Since it may be related to FF overall sluggish behaviour, I included this info in a bugreport to Mozilla as well: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1424684#c1.

Does Forecastfox make API calls that are blocking (during initialization)?

Would be good to have the Moon Phases info displayed on the pop-up window as well.

Can this be done?

When you install the addon you get a button to place anywhere you want!

I've put mine on the bookmarks toolbar. When you click that button you get a "Pop-Up window" / a "<div>" or something like that. I'm referring to that "popup"...

(i'm sorry, but i don't know where to add screenshot and i'm in a bit of a hurry... sorry...)
