    Accuweather hijacks access from weather.com


    When using Firefox last week I mis-spelled weather.com and it landed me at Accu-weather. I tried to correct for this by typing weather.com again and I cannot access. I restarted my browser no success. Rebooted my computer, no success. How can I access weather.com and how can I report this terrible behavior of accuweather? Now weather.com is inaccessible. TIA WIN10, latest FF update.

    :)

  3. Accuweather problems on a Nokia Astound

    For those people having problems with Accuweather, I suggest to install ForecaWeather. Although it doesn't have a widget, it's by far the best free weather app for Symbian.



    ForecaWeather is available for free at Ovi Store: http://store.ovi.com/content/40701

    Nokia Weather Accuracy (or lack of)

    not exactly sure what service they are using, but I know there is an AccuWeather app in the Nokia Collection in the Marketplace/Store for the Windows Phone platform, so they may be using them. I find some weather apps to be hopelessly off the mark so badly,
    such as AccuWeather....only accurate weather where I live in Australia is WeatherZone. I don't really have any suggestions except to try all the Weather apps that you can find and settle on one that is closest to the temperature that you feel is correct.
