In Search of Forecastfox 2.2.4 for LINUX

Among my many adventures with CentOS 7.0 I wanted to install Forecastfox 2.2.4 for Firefox LINUX. Well I read all type of chatter on Forecastfox 2.2.4, but the only Downloads for Forecastfox 2.2.4 was nasty ol' Windoze. The only link I found took me to a place called "getforcastfox", and all you are greeted with is a bunch of ads, and no way to download Forecastfox 2.2.4.

Dose anyone know a LINUX site where you can actually DOWNLOAD Forecastfox 2.2.4, rather than be confronted with ads but no way to download it.

It's an add-on, but are you saying that you wish to grab the source because you can't get it working with firefox 29 or greater? That's the problem I had. I had to install "Classic Theme Restorer" in order to be able to allow me to see forecastfox. But otherwise, I thought that add-ons were precompiled XPI files and you gave them to the application which uses MIME to install them; so I didn't think there was Windows vs Linux vs other variations, but instead one install file which worked for any OS.

This is where I got Classic Theme Restorer which you need for FireFox 29 or greater. And many thanks to D IsMe May 7 Reply for that link.

And sorry I can't find a place to download the XPI file; also checking on my system to see if it kept the file, but no dice yet. I'll update if I do manage to locate it; I know what you're saying about it bringing you to a bunch of ad pages.
