I just installed the stable version. I see it is 2037.6352. Keep in mind that things were working fine with the betas until some point about a month or two ago. If the stable version corresponds to a beta that didn't work then the stable version probably won't either. I'll have to wait a little bit to see how the site behaves. Will get back.

Things seem to be more up to date with the stable version. I still get some out dated stuff occasionally. For instance at this moment the 'next few hours' graphic starts at 11:45 am. Sometimes it will say 11:30 am. Refreshing the page doesn't work but getting out of the page and then selecting it again usually gets the time right. Even so what I am seeing is a big improvement over the betas I've been using. I'll go with the stable version for a little longer and see how things play out at which point I might try the beta again.

Still getting different times and forecasts especially compared to IE11.
Andrey... At this point I have no idea who is at fault. Earlier today I booted into Safe mode and still had the same weird results even on IE11. I am current playing around with various weather.com cookies.

So far the only 100% sure fire way to get the correct results is to disable my Fx cache. I'm hoping the problem might be a cookie, we will see.
I also have a similar problem with the weather on cnn.com. The time is often incorrect. This is also 'fixed' when running without a disk cache. Do you have a version of the Stealth Mode add-on I can try right now even if it's an alpha?
Firefox has this feature called network predictor which predicts what you are going to click on I think. It's supposed to speed things up. I believe it stores it's predictions in the disk cache. I found this in the cache. Anything that might help solving my problem?
At first it looked like it was working then I started getting old stuff again. I opened up a Bug Report on my problem and asked if the network predictor could be the culprit. A Developer said it's unlikely as the URLS are not used to go anywhere.
I was running with the rule for over an hour and everything updated as it should. Of course having all those pesky ads really slowed down the site. At this point I think it is easier to find another weather site ;-).
Yesterday I was getting a kind of weird ad but today the ad isn't present anymore. I assumed the ad was still there today. So you are right

I don't know if we ever agreed that AG was at fault but I am more convinced every day. For example, I just went to the site and it had times and forecasts that were hours ago. I kept going back to the site with no updates. A site refresh didn't work. I then disabled AG, restarted Fx, went to the site and all is up to date. With AG enabled once more it will fail to update once more.
I looked at the page source and saw that it started with 11 empty lines. Is this OK? I don't ever recall looking at any page that had empty beginning lines.
I'm not giving up on this. I basically shutdown AG and it's service. I then installed the latest uBlock Origin add-on. I've been running for an hour and weather.com is performing like it should. All times and forecasts are up to date.
IIRC I tried uBlock before and it was giving me the same problems as AG. However, uBlock now has an option, which is checked, to disable Link prefetching. Link prefetching is the default in Fx so it has been enabled all the time. Could link prefetching be the problem? It does grab things from the cache to speed things up. I'll have to try AG with link prefetching disabled and see what happens.

I just turned on link prefetching while running under uBlock. Sure enough I started to pull in old pages with old forecasts. After disabling it the forecasts were once again up to date. Very Interesting. Can't wait to try it with AG.

Crap. Disabled link prefetch and fired up AG again. Still got old pages.
