Firefox uses Celsius instead Fahrenheit on Accuweather forecast site. (Chrome does not). This only started a couple of weeks ago. How do I get it to switch back to Fahrenheit? I click on the *C but nothing happens. http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/cranford-nj/07016/daily-weather-forecast/334530

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

You can remove all data stored in Firefox from a specific domain (website) via "Forget About This Site" in the right-click context menu of an history item ("History > Show All History" or "View > Sidebar > History").

  • You can tap the Alt key or press F10 to show the Menu Bar with the View and History menus.

Using "Forget About This Site" will remove all data stored in Firefox from that domain like bookmarks, cookies, passwords, cache, history, and exceptions, so be cautious. If you have a password or other data from that domain that you do not want to lose then make sure to backup this data or make a note.

You can't recover from this 'forget' unless you have a backup of the involved files.

If you revisit a 'forgotten' website then data from that website will be saved once again.

That is a web site issue. Look for it's settings.

No, it's a Firefox issue because: If you use Chrome and go to the site:http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/cranford-nj/07016/daily-weather-forecast/334530 The temperature will be in Fahrenheit. Use Firefox and go to EXACTLY the same site: http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/cranford-nj/07016/daily-weather-forecast/334530 and the temperature will be Celsius. (When I click on *C which I thought was a setting, nothing happens. ) Try visiting the site using the two search engines. You'll see what I'm talking about! Thanks.

It is on website. Look on top where it says English (US), °C and you can click on that and change it to °F

Firefox and Chrome are web browsers and not search engine sites.

James, as I stated, I have tried repeatedly to "click" on the *C (I can change it when I use the Chrome BROWSER ) and nothing happens. If it were a problem with the site, wouldn't it be there no matter which browser I use? Since it only happens when I use Firefox, I have to assume the problem lies with Firefox and not the web site. Thanks for trying to help though.

I'm sorry to be going back to the start but I would hate to see your Question finish unresolved. Your link works perfectly for me in Firefox. The temperatures are shown in Celsius and in the top right corner for me the English (US), *C Heading is for a drop-down which clearly offers the effective choice between C and F. Do you get the drop-down when you click on English (US), *C?

This reply should at least attract some more help.

As a little aside, I live in a Celsius country where it is mid-summer; your chilly Fahrenheit temperatures look like our very warm Celsius temperatures at the moment.

Hello Alan! On my screen there is a line in the blue box and *C. No drop down arrow. I see it when I use Chrome and can easily switch between the two, but not on Firefox. 'Tis a mystery and since I am 82 years old and not computer savvy, I don't think I will ever be able to fix it. :( Thanks though, for trying to help and I envy your warm weather! Cheers!

Thanks for trying to help me with this issue, but I am 82 years old and I'm completely confused by your detailed instructions ! I'm afraid I will just have to use Chrome for my weather info from now on. Again, thank you for trying to help!

Thank you cor-el! I was able to "Forget about this site" and the site is now back to normal! Appreciate your help! Thanks again...
