With Firefox 3.6.10 I cannot run The Weather Channel's interactive or full-featured maps. Anyone know why?

Posted

I have no problem loading The Weather Channel's web site but when I click the map for my locale to enable the interactive map, or map in motion, or full-featured map, I get a blank screen -- although the time-log loop for the interactive or map in motion displays.

Still doesn't work 3.6.13. It seems that the map is stuck at being centered somewhere in the Arctic -- so the map is always blue. Zoom all the way out (to world view) to see what I mean.

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the add-ons is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).

  • Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.

I'm running 3.6.6 with the Flashblock add-on and this worked for me:

Tools ... Add-ons ... Extensions ... Flashblock ... Options ... Whitelist

Type in "weather.com" and click Add.

I tried this on a hunch since adding "maps.google.com" fixed a similar problem I had with Street View .

Thanks to those who provided help, but the tips didn't work for me.

I just applied the latest Flash update, however, and now the weather.com map-in-motion finally works for me, again.

I've been having a variety of odd problems with FireFox. Getting the latest Flash update fixed the weather.com map problem. I'm hoping it will fix the other stuff that's not been working.
