Hi,


for my macbook I am using firefox browser, and seeking an addon as a world time zone manager or a website I can direct link to.

I need to see at an instant for 6 locations the time, date on a 24 hr style, maybe with a map, distances measured distances. Any other useful infos, could make the addon/website even more useful for my needs.

I have checked many related topics/addons on this. But most, appear to have spy software/ad pop-ups etc. I am seeking one that is secure, and stable to use.


Thanks.

I'm not quite sure that I understand what you're asking, but have you considered the World Clock widget in Dashboard? It seems like it would work perfectly for you; you can drag on as many as you want, set them for any time zone or city, and access them with one key press.

Edit: I forgot that you wanted a 24-hour clock; if you simply can't work without it, perhaps you could find a similar, even more suitable widget on Apple's download page. In fact, the featured widget of the day is a world clock!

Hey Nabl,


thank you for the link.

It was something on the line, that I was looking for. I wished it had more functionality to make it even more useful to meet my needs.

I just couldnt figure out, why I cant keep it on the dashboard as long I want it. After moving on around the screen, it keeps disappearing only to reappear again through the dashboard window!

Hi rogerinlondon/growlgrowl,


as for foxclock to solve the issue that you are facing you need most likely to adjust your system time to your clock time!

This one has many functionalities that I could need, but I cant locate some city names!

How were you able to delete it, I cant delete mine?

I believe you're referring to the nature of Dashboard; it's only there when you need it. However, if you would like the widget to always stay on top, there is a way to keep it present persistently. Just follow these instructions. Alternatively, here's a video I made that will show you step by step what to do (following the same instructions, just played out).

Hi,


thank you for the useful inside.

However, I got a message that I have a limited time left, and have to purchase it afterward the limited time is over.

As I indicated before, especially if I have to pay for it, I will want something to meet my needs through its functionality and features.

This addon has only, limited features that are useful to me!


Thanks again.

Good link and video too.

FWIW, for those that are Terminal Averse there is a check box in Onyx that allows you to enable the Dashboard Devmode.

The link is working fine. Perhaps the site was down when you tried it. Or try the main page - krzysp.net

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
