Firefox Add-Ons

Weather-File.com Firefox Compatibility

The Weather-file.com website collects wind & weather data from a number of internet connected anemometers around the Solent on the south coast of England, for sailors. Unfortunately this website uses an Internet Explorer only control to display the data. This add-on replaces the data table with a Firefox compatible version of the same data hosted on this server.

Download it from Mozilla's Add-Ons website
