In brief: Broken foot

The time the fracture needs to heal depends on the location of the fracture as well as the circulation status of the person.
Some bone seal faster than others and some locations are harder to heal the other locations. Diabetes and smoking or also risk factors that make fractures heal sometimes twice as long.

In brief: Typically 12 weeks

Typically 12 weeks, but everyone is different.
Things like nicotine, nutrition, etc all come into play as well.

In brief: It varies...

Healing time for a broken foot depends on many factors, including the location of the fracture, severity, age of the patient, compliance with physician recommendations and the presence or absence of other factors that affect healing such as smoking and diabetes.
Generally speaking, most foot fractures heal in about 6 weeks.
