    Firefox gets times wrong? (1.0)

    When viewing a particular BBS using Firefox, there is a line at the bottom of most of the web pages which says "All times are GMT + 10 hours".

    When viewed in IE6, the line reads "All times are GMT".

    Try viewing this in both Firefox and IE6, and see what dates/times you see in "You last visited on..." or "The time now is..."

    It seems quite extraordinary!

    No problem from here.
    The screen-grabs below (IE top, FF bottom) were taken 1 minute apart.
    And I'm not getting +10Hrs on any page with either browser.

    It appears to be a Profile problem on that website, which for no reason I know of was set to GMT+10 !

    But it doesn't explain why IE6 got one time and Firefox got another.... [grrrh]

    Thanks!

    Your FF cookie for the site probably had the wrong profile info whilst IE's cookie had the right info.
