Displayed Time Format

The viewer shows the time of day in at least one place, that being the right end of the menu bar. There it shows time in either 12-hour or 24-hour format, and either PST (Pacific Standard Time) or PDT (Pacific Daylight Time). The viewer may also show timestamps in chat and the Conversation Log; those are also PST or PDT and are always 24-hour format. And if you show timestamps for Teleport History, that is UTC/GMT (7 or 8 hours before SLT, depending on Daylight Savings) and is in 24-hour format.

If your computer's default language is English then it will show 12-hour format; French and German, among others, will show 24-hour time. But if your computer does not have a default language installed, the viewer will show 24-hour format. There are two ways to resolve this:

  • Install a default language in your computer. How to do this depends on the operating system.
    • Mac if necessary
    • Linux, though a default language is chosen during install
  • Change the default language in Preferences → General, although this may not always work.

Remember to reboot your computer if you change its configuration, and restart Firestorm if you change a viewer setting.
