I do get the weather icon and temp displayed using Firefox, But not with IE.


There is something in IE blocking your weather from appearing. Try deleting your cookies and cache then try again.

 

Let me know the results.

Re: Local News/Local Forecast

Deleted 'temporary internet files' and 'cookies' but don't see anything that says cache.

Didn't work with what I deleted.

What version of IE are you using?

 

Try completely uninstalling IE from your computer then try installing it again.

 

Let me know the results.

Re: Local News/Local Forecast

Have IE 7, had no problems at all up until about 10 days ago.

Re: Local News/Local Forecast

Try this. It worked for me. 

 

1) Sign in from the Comcast main page - http://xfinity.comcast.net/

2) Be back on that main page and mouse over the weather icon to the left of the search field.

3) Click on the down arrow that appears so that you see something like this:

WeatherLoc.jpg

 

4) Click on Change Location. Type in your zip code or choose a city. Choose Go.

 

That should stick.

Re: Local News/Local Forecast

Thanks for the suggestion.

I tried pretty much everything and the weather icon and temp still refused to display.

I finally just upgraded to IE 8 and that solved it.

Same here for Firefox 9.0.1! That Comcast weather hasn't updated for HOURS!  It STILL always shows "37 degrees in East Hartford, CT, and sunny", even though it's still cold at night!  When will the weather updater be fixed?!

Re: Local News/Local Forecast

Same issue in Pittsburgh, PA...weather is definitely lagging!

I tested 15220 and had no issues. The weather and local news are both loading correctly.

 

What operating system and browser are you using?

Re: Local News/Local Forecast

Hi Joe,  Thanks for the quick response.  Local News/Local Forecast is working correctly again this morning.  Assume it was a temporary outage last night.  Running Windows XP SP3 and IE8.  Thanks again..
