mozilla apps have wrong timezone
This is a problem that I've been having some time now.
Mozilla thunderbird and Firefox display my timezone as -1200 resulting
in all my email displaying dates a day into the future when they
arrive, and Firefox getting warnings from sites about incorrect system
I'm in New Zealand, thus my time zone is +1200, the hardware clock is set to local time due to dual booting with windows.
Your current time zone is set to Etc/GMT+12
Mon Sep 5 15:51:27 2005 -0.344740 seconds
Mon Sep 5 03:51:45 2005 -0.470560 seconds
For my non root account "date" shows times the same as hwclock.
I've searched for ways of configuring mozilla apps but I can't find
anything - other people seem to sometimes have the same problem but I
haven't seen a solution. Any suggestions?
Daylight savings time may have something to do with it - GMT+12+1 = 13
hours ahead, which maybe mozilla wraps to -12? In a couple of weeks we
go to normal time so it will be interesting to see what happens.
