I'm noticing that the time of day shown for my posts is one hour later than my computer system time (and the actual time) when I make the post. Daylight Savings Time issue?

Is this a problem with the Mozillazine site, or is there another issue?

Hi,
Have you checked in your User Control Panel......over there, in the top box. ---------------------------->>

OK, thanks guys. It was the Summer Time/DST setting that was set to Yes. Currently on Standard Time at my location.

Does this setting change automatically or does it require user intervention twice a year?

Hi,
It's up to you to change it, as how would Firefox know the exact change-over date for each country.
Just remember to do it...... (I keep forgetting it, as well.) :)

Well, Firefox knows because it picks up the system time. But, I guess Mozillazine doesn't know anything about my system time, other than my UTC zone specified in my profile.

You're correct.
It's the Forum that's doesn't auto it pickup.
At least it gives you the option.
I think most fora would do the same?
