Check the settings/options for Foxweather for a setting to show the icon in the toolbar.

To access the settings for the add-on, try right-clicking on the icon for the add-on in the status bar. If you can not access them that way, open the add-ons manager (in the Tools menu select Add-ons), in the list of extensions click on the Foxweather add-on, then click on the Options button.

Another possible method is to check for an icon for the add-on in the customize toolbars dialog and drag that onto the toolbar. For details of how to do that see Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars .
