Forecastfox Weather was a Firefox browser extension created by Ensolis that displays a summary of weather forecast for a given location in the status bar, menu bar or toolbar. The summary takes the form of icons alongside text labels, depicting sun, clouds or rain for one or more days ahead. Hovering over the icons shows more information such as temperature and wind speed.

As of 2014, the extension is no longer being updated. Current Firefox browsers indicate the downloads linked from (version 2.2.2) as not compatible with Firefox 31 or later, an obstacle to deployment. Firefox 28 is supported. Third-party sources have versions which work with current browsers,[1][2] but the extension still relies on the website to serve the extension's configuration page. If that domain were to stop functioning, there is a strong risk that Forecastfox would no longer be installable.

Deployment on current Firefox versions requires the Addon Bar (Restored) or Classic Theme, as the extension toolbar is no longer standard in the default browser. There is also a version of the extension for Google Chrome.

Forecast information is provided by AccuWeather. Previously, the feed was provided by but the terms of service became too restrictive.[citation needed]
