Olive's [ Hello-Wordish ] Add-ons



Your Weather Pixie in the Status Bar =)

Weatherfoxie adds an icon to the statusbar, which tooltip displays your tailored pixie from weatherpixie.com. To find your pixie's image location:

  1. Visit weatherpixie.com/?page=find and use the form to customize your pixie
  2. Right-click the pixie picture (at the left of the page) and in the context menu click "Copy Image Location"
  3. Right-click the Weatherfoxie icon in Firefox status bar and then click "Settings..."
  4. Right-click the "Pixie's Image Location" textbox and then click "Paste".
The default location is Mountain View, CA. For Mozilla Firefox and up, Thunderbird 1.5 and up, and Sunbird 0.3a1 and up.

Version 0.4 (2007-05-01) is out!
